As a homeowner, you have many responsibilities when it comes to the maintenance of your home. While some things can keep you up at night, the integrity and durability of your sewer line shouldn’t be one of those. Thankfully, there’s a sure way to know how well your sewer line is operating. The inspectors of Residential Inspector of America use little cameras on the end of rods to dive deep into your sewer line, and here are some of the benefits you can expect.
1. Locate a Leak
While some leaks within your plumbing are obvious, others might not be so apparent, especially if they’re coming from within your sewer line. One of the main benefits of a camera sewer line inspection is that the exact cause of a leak can be found and fixed right away. If you ignore any signs that you’re having plumbing issues, it could cost you more money and more time in the long run. So, always have your sewer line inspected ASAP.
2. Eliminate Unnecessary Digging
Once a sewer line bursts, the only way to repair it is to dig up your entire yard. Without knowing exactly where the leak is coming from, you could end up with a large trench in your lawn. Not only is that costly, but it’s also unsightly, and your lawn may never look the same again. A camera line inspection is less intrusive and can help pinpoint the exact cause of the damaged pipe or blockage.
3. Reference Video
If you’re considering selling your home, having a sewer line inspection on video can help ease buyers’ minds. This video evidence is significant if you sell an older home and the plumbing is outdated. Even if you’re not selling, the video is good to have on file with your insurance company, so if damage does happen in the future or an unexpected pipe break happens, you can get it covered.
