Sewer Camera Inspection
Do you have Cast Iron Pipes?
If your home was built before 1980 - a sewer camera inspection could save you THOUSANDS of dollars as you prevent having a backup. Those old cast iron pipes have a 30-50 year life expectancy, but many break or leak after even 20 years.
Your homes' pipes are often an afterthought as long as your plumbing system is working properly, but just like the rest of your home, it needs regular inspection.
If you are buying a new home, the time to find out if a home’s pipes are faulty or need to be replaced is before you buy it, not after the fact. If you already your home, a yearly inspection of your pipe is recommended to catch any problems before they become expensive breaks or leaks.
Plumbing Video Inspections for New Homeowners
You’ve made an offer on the perfect home, and the buyer has accepted. You hire a home inspector, who reports a clean bill of health.
Even if you ordered a home inspection, it will often not catch issues with pipes buried in the slab under the home, or in the walls. Home inspectors may check superficial things such as fixtures—and may even have a sharp enough eye to catch signs of mold or water damage—but when it comes to plumbing, there’s usually a lot more than meets the eye. That’s why a video sewer inspection should be part of any homeownership checklist, especially if the home is more than 20 years old.
Reasons to Inspect the Sewer Line Before Buying
Tree Root Intrusion: This is one of the most common problems with older sewer lines. To a tree, a sewer system represents a virtually unlimited source of water and nutrients. Roots invade a plumbing system through tiny openings, then grow and expand. Over time, root buildup can cause cracks and major blockages.
Orangeburg Pipes: Many homes built before the 1970s have sewer lines made from a fibrous material called Orangeburg, which disintegrates as it ages.
Remodeling: Kitchen and bathroom remodeling is a popular way to increase the resale value of older homes. Even if the previous homeowners invested in a remodel before selling, did they make sure the home’s plumbing system could handle the increased flow and waste?
What Is a Video Sewer Camera Inspection?
Aside from being non-invasive, accurate, and cost-efficient, a video camera inspection is the easiest way to assess the condition of sewer lines and identify any areas of concern.
During a video inspection, a Skilled Camera Technician will navigate a specially designed waterproof camera throughout the main portion of the plumbing system recording a real-time video feed that pinpoints problem areas that need to be repaired. Video camera inspections are a valuable tool that helps save homeowners (and potential homeowners) time, money, and inconvenience.
Don’t buy a home in Arizona without knowing whether or not you’re signing up for serious plumbing problems down the road. By getting a video sewer camera inspection before closing on the mortgage, you can prevent buyer’s remorse and enjoy your new home for many years to come.
