How to Find and Fix Sewer Line Issues Fast
If you suspect a problem with your sewer lines, or if you’re buying new construction, a sewer scope can save you time and money. Since plumbing is underground, sewer backups can be hard to diagnose. The average sewer replacement costs between $2,500 and $7,000, so it’s best to get to the root of the issue and give yourself peace of mind.
With some home maintenance issues, it doesn’t hurt to put them off. However, sewer problems can cause damage to your foundation or back up into your home, so you want to resolve them as quickly as possible. Here’s how to know if you should call an expert.
- You just bought a new home. Sometimes construction debris and heavy equipment can damage sewer lines. Your builder might not know what’s going on underneath your home, but a sewer scope can show you.
- Your drains empty slowly or back up. If your sinks and showers take a while to drain or your toilets make gurgling noises, your sewer line is most likely the issue.
- You see leaks around the foundation or discoloration in your yard. If the area around your home’s exterior has discolored spots or your grass is turning yellow, you might have a blockage or break that’s leaking sewage.
Benefits of Having a Sewer Scope
A sewer scope uses the latest technology to take the guesswork out of sewage issues. Experts insert a waterproof camera that can travel throughout your system to locate blockages or ruptured lines.
When you have sewage problems, you want answers fast. Sewer lines are often encased in concrete or buried deep beneath the surface. Real-time footage helps experts find and repair the problem that day.
