Sewer Inspection Services.


Why Get A Sewer Inspection Before You Buy Your Next Home

A sewer inspection is a key step in the home-buying process. It helps uncover potentially costly and problematic issues that might not be visible during a standard home inspection, ensuring that you are fully informed about the state of the property’s sewer system before making a significant investment. Our sewer lateral inspection services can help you understand the condition of the sewer line in the home you are purchasing and help you to negotiate a better deal if repairs are needed. Did you know that many townships and municipalities in Pennsylvania require sewer camera inspections before a home sale can take place?

We Are A Nassco Certified Sewer Camera Inspection Company

NASSCO, the National Association of Sewer Service Companies, offers training and certification programs for professionals in the sewer inspection and rehabilitation industry. These programs aim to ensure high standards of practice and knowledge in assessing, maintaining, and rehabilitating underground infrastructure.

Some townships require a sewer line inspection before purchasing a home to ensure the proper functioning and maintenance of the sewer system, which is crucial for the overall sanitation and infrastructure of the area. These inspections are particularly important in areas with aging sewer systems. For instance, in Upper Darby Township, the requirement for sewer line inspections before property sales was introduced as a measure to maintain the township’s aging sewer system and to prevent issues like fresh water entering and overwhelming the municipal sewer system through dilapidated pipes.

What Exactly Is A Sewer Inspection?

A sewer camera inspection is a process where a waterproof, high-resolution camera is inserted into the sewer line. This camera is attached to a flexible rod that allows it to navigate through the pipes. The camera transmits real-time video footage to a monitor, which the technician uses to inspect the condition of the sewer pipes. This method is non-invasive and provides a detailed view of the sewer system, helping identify issues like blockages, cracks, root intrusion, or other damages inside the sewer pipes.

Why Should I Consider A Sewer Camera Inspection?

You should consider a sewer camera inspection if you are experiencing repeated drainage problems, such as slow drains or frequent backups. It’s also highly recommended before purchasing a new home to assess the condition of the property’s sewer system. Additionally, if your home is older and you haven’t had an inspection in many years, it might be wise to check the condition of your sewer lines to prevent potential problems.

When Should I Consider A Plumbing Video Inspection?

We recommend you consult our expert plumbing contractors for a sewer line camera inspection services if you are experiencing repeated drain line back-ups. Plumbing video inspections can help you uncover a multitude of issues like broken, misaligned, or punctured pipes, allowing our plumbers to quickly start working on the best possible solution. We also recommend looking into plumbing video inspection if you have recently purchased a new home or commercial property — a precautionary inspection could potentially help you prevent nasty surprises down the line
