This $250 inspection could save you thousands of dollars
Let’s talk about one of the “crappiest” things that can happen to a homeowner. A sewer problem….
As a homeowner, you are responsible for the sewer line all the way from your home to the main sewer line, which is typically at the street. Sewer lines are something that we don’t really think about, until there is a problem. Sewer lines are susceptible to breaks, cracks, and clogging due to low spots or tree root intrusion. When your sewage is not able to flow through the line properly, all kinds of bad “shit” can happen. (Forgive me, I can’t resist a good pun.)
By hiring a professional to scope the sewer, you can easily identify any potential problems. The sewer scope consists of running a wire with a camera connected to it through the entire length of your sewer line. The camera can catch any damage or clogs in the line.

If sewer repairs are needed, they can be costly, destructive and cause serious inconvenience. Often times when a sewer lines needs to be repaired, it requires you to tear up the front yard, or worse, the driveway in order to repair it. So not only do you have a torn apart driveway, you are also without water for the duration of the repairs, and those repairs can take days.
So, do yourself a favor. Spend the $250 and a half hour of your life getting the sewer scoped. It can save you from a huge hassle, or at the very least, give you peace of mind.
