Sewer inspections can vary from home to home.

Understanding Older Sewer Lines

If your system is 20 years or older, you need to keep a close eye. That last thing you need is a whole new sewer line method to be replaced. The machine will last for a few more years, but problems will develop left and right.

Now, that doesn’t mean that you should just ignore your current system. Newer systems are vulnerable to problems as well, they aren’t immune. When there are a good amount of trees or shrubbery near your system, think about more frequent inspections. You’d be surprised how fast roots can get in and out sewer lines.

Properly Setting Up An Appointment

The average homeowner schedules a sewer inspection on their calendar about once a year. You have to understand that scheduling an inspection is crucial to having an exceptional happy home. Getting to your sewer system is not a simple task. It’s literally buried in the ground, professionals have to go in and dig up dirt. Sometimes this can be costly.

Digging Isn’t Needed All The Time

At times, digging up a driveway is not even needed to do a repair. Although you don’t want to take the risk if your sewer drain is underneath your driveway when getting it replaced. Do understand that many sewer systems run under the driveway. If you’re planning to replace your driveway for any reason, this could be the time to add a sewer line inspection.

Camera Inspection

Now if you happen to think there could be a problem with your system, our Long Beach Plumbing Experts suggest you ask for a camera inspection. Most local Long Beach Plumbing Experts offer this service. This is a less expensive method to search for potential problems or blockages. It is also an incredible way to inspect your system without tearing up your driveway as well.

But this method isn’t always a correct visual inspection of your system. Unfortunately at times, in getting a camera inspection, you might have to tear up your driveway anyway.
