When buying a home, you really should consider having the drain line evaluated, regardless of the home's age. Tree roots, offset pipes, damaged pipes, and low spots with poor drainage are all common problems that can be found in the main drain line. Even if water seeems to be draining fine in the home, there could still be problems that manifest themselves later. We can provide you an unbiased evaluation of the drain line from the home to the city sewer line (or to the septic tank) to help identify such issues. You will receive photos and video of the sewer line, along with a report that summarizes the findings. If problems are found, we will recommend further followup by a licensed plumber. We can perform this service at the time of the home inspection or a stand-alone service. The inspection will completed per the Internachi Sewer Scope Standards of Practice which you can learn more about here.
