A sewer inspection is important whether you already own a house or are just about to purchase one. There are many benefits to regular sewer inspections, but you’ll be able to get more out of these inspections when you know the ideal time to schedule them. Here are the best times to contact Cole Plumbing for sewer camera inspection services in Elmore, AL.
When Selling or Buying a House
A pipe camera inspection is essential, especially when you are purchasing an older home or if you’re not the first owner of the property. Even if you’re knowingly buying a fixer-upper, you’d still be better off knowing the full extent of the sewer damage so you can gauge your potential losses in contrast to the potential gains.
On the other hand, when selling a house, it is equally important to make sure that the sewer is in good condition via a sewer video inspection. Along with all the other components of the property, of course. In doing so, you raise the market value of the property.
Recurring clogged drains are a clear indicator that you need a plumbing inspection. It’s highly likely that you have a frequently clogged drain due to a buildup of fats, oils, and grease in the kitchen drains, or hair and soap scum in the bathroom drains. However, the clogging issue could also be due to tree root invasion. Either way, an inspection is necessary to determine which drain service is appropriate.
As Part of Regular Maintenance
There doesn’t have to be anything wrong with your plumbing to schedule a drain inspection. You can utilize this sewer service to monitor the current condition of your pipes so you could stay on top of your upkeep to-do list.
Outdated Sewer System
While sewer systems are designed to have an average lifespan of 30 to 50 years, your sewer pipes are probably outdated if your home was built decades ago. Trust only a professional plumber for the job to avoid damaging the sewer line and to ensure accurate findings.
