Why Should You Inspect Your Sewer and Water Lines?

Do you know when the last time your sewer and water lines were inspected? If not, chances are, you need to have it done. Getting them regularly inspected allows you to know if there are any early signs of problems that you should be aware of. The sooner you know about a problem, the more options you have in terms of repair in many cases. Plus, the more notice you have when it comes to saving up or setting money aside to get it done. Here are some important things to know about water and sewer line inspection.

How Often to Inspect Water and Sewer Lines

The Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, recommends two different time tables for sewer inspections, depending on the age of your pipes. If you have old pipes, then you need to get them looked at every two years or so. For new pipes, then you can double that so long as you are careful about what goes down your drains. If you put a lot of stuff down the drains, you may want to do it more often.

What Can Be Seen During Sewer and Water Line Inspections?

When we come through and inspect your sewer and water pipes, we see a lot. The camera in the pipes gets a 360-degree view of the pipe. Plus, if we see a problem area, we can zoom in to get a better image. This can show us blockages, cracks, and even where buildup occurs. When we inspect your water line, we can make sure none of your water is leaking out. This is sometimes hard to spot since the pipes get buried. However, if you notice your water bill increasing without a reason, this may be the cause.
