Sewer Camera Inspection
Let us peek in the dark, dirty pipes so you don’t have to!
Your home’s sewer line is responsible for providing a pathway for wastewater and sewage to safely exit your home. Without these essential piping systems, our lives would be a lot less convenient and smell a whole lot worse.
Over the years, a tremendous amount of water passes through a sewer line — and even though these pipes are capable of withstanding a lot, each gallon that passes through causes wear and erosion that can lead to issues over time.
Sewer line inspections are one of the essential services provided by professionals here at Roadrunner Plumbing. Getting a professional opinion about the health of your plumbing can go a long way to ensure that you prevent major issues before they occur.

Why Sewer Line Inspections Are Necessary & When You May Need One
If you’re not currently experiencing any sewer line issues, it might be hard to figure out why they would be worth thinking about in the first place. However, sewer line inspection serves a number of purposes that extend past your general plumbing needs. To give our customers an idea of when a sewer line inspection may be necessary, here are a few times you should pay extra attention to your sewer line.
Before The Purchase Of A Home
The sewer line is one of the most important components to consider when purchasing a new home, and it’s vital that you have the entire plumbing system inspected before signing on the dotted line. Sewer line issues can get extensive and expensive. Purchasing a home with an unknown sewer line issue has the potential to add thousands of dollars to the final ticket price of your new place.
After Major Renovations
It’s important to have your line inspected both before and after major plumbing renovations to ensure that everything is in working order. Plumbing repairs can be extensive, and it’s far easier to carry out any renovations that may be done when the previous plumbing system is working properly.
Additionally, inspections after renovations are suggested because plumbing issues can compound quickly. It’s far easier to catch and fix an issue with a pre-inspection rather than discovering your new plumbing renovation has issues once the damage it has caused has already become extensive.
As Part Of Routine Maintenance
It’s recommended by most plumbing professionals that you have your sewer line inspected as part of routine plumbing maintenance at least once every 1-2 years. This is by far the best way to prevent major damage and is almost guaranteed to pay for itself in prevented repair costs over the lifetime of a home.
As A Diagnostic Tool When Experiencing Plumbing Issues
Maybe the most obvious, but by no means the least important function of sewer line inspections – they’re a powerful diagnostic tool when it comes to pinpointing issues that extend past your home’s plumbing and into the sewer line.
Sewer line issues not only have the potential to cause damage to the rest of your home and property, but they can also negatively impact the health of those in your home, so it’s vital that these issues be addressed as soon as they’re discovered.
