We recommend home owners obtain a
sewer inspection if your home is older than 20 years.
Although the sewer line may be fairly new as compared to
homes built before 1950, for example, tree roots can
still clog up a 20-year-old sewer line.
Reasons to Inspect the Sewer Line
Tree roots growing into sewer lines is a common problem.
Roots crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer
line, latching on to other debris that typically cause
backups such as grease or eggshell waste.
chemicals can kill the trees roots but if the roots
reappear, the pipe may be damaged and require excavation
to fix the problem.
areas where pipes must be buried
deeper, and feeding the new pipe
behind a splitter doesn't work, a
trench must be dug the length of the
main sewer line.
pipes can also get clogged up with
an accumulation of grease, muck, and
other things that may get washed
down there day after day.

cracked, offset or collapsed pipe - damaged pipes due to
shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc. are all
sewer line problems
grease build-up or a foreign object is restricting or
prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning of the line.
Corrosion - the pipe has deteriorated
and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and
Bellied pipe - a section of the pipe
has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a
valley that collects paper and waste.
Leaking joints - the seals between
pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the
area surrounding the pipe.
Root infiltration - tree or shrub roots
have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning
and/or have damaged the line.
