The Importance of Sewer Line Inspections for New Homes


When it comes to your plumbing system, your sewer line is not typically something that you concern yourself with. However, as the main supplier to your pipes and the outlet for your waste-water, its importance should not be minimized. If you’ve ever experienced issues with your sewer line, then you should have it inspected at least once a year. What if you’ve just purchased a home though?

Call a Licensed Professional

New homebuyers have a multitude of tasks to do before closing on their home: filling out loan paperwork, scheduling a home appraisal, and arranging for a home inspection being among them. What home inspections leave out though is checking for plumbing issues. It’s crucial that you call a licensed professional with the right equipment to inspect the sewer line before you purchase the home. Home inspectors are charged with looking at accessible mechanical systems, but this simply isn’t good enough and frankly, it could end up costing you thousands of dollars after you move in.

What Problems Might Occur?

During a sewer line inspection, we look for a number of issues or potential issues. We check for clogs, sagging pipes, cracks, and even where tree roots are in relation to your sewer line. Any of these problems can result in sewer line backup, where raw sewage comes up from the basement floor drain or other fixtures in your home. It may also cause your house drains to function very slowly.

If a sewer line blockage or damage reaches this point, then a plumber would have to come out and dig up your yard in order to install new piping and connect it to the city sewer line. This is not an easy task, nor is it a cheap one. As a new homebuyer, it’s definitely not something you’d want to face within your first few months in a new house.

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.

When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
