Sewer Inspections: 3 Reasons You May Need One

Sometimes it is obvious when we need help with our sewage system. The sink drains slowly, our toilets back up, and no amount of drain cleaning will get rid of the stench coming out of our kitchen sink.  Other times, the need for a sewer inspection is not so evident.

1. You Septic System Has a Legitimate Problem

  • One of the most obvious reasons you may need a sewer inspection is to diagnose and repair a major sewage problem.
  • Signs of a faulty or clogged septic system include:
  • Slow draining sinks/toilets.
  • Backing up; finding a dark, foul smelling liquid collecting in the toilet or sink.
  • Surface water around the base of the toilet; also may give off an odor.
  • Lingering odor in and around the house.

2. Buying a Home

  • Don’t let the sewage system for a potential home be an afterthought. It is always important to conduct a sewer inspection before making your purchase. The market value of a home can be affected by a bad sewage system, and no one wants to buy a home just to replace the pipes. When examining a septic system, it is important to check the tank’s location, capacity, age, and lateral lines (drainage lines).
  • Many homeowners are not aware that they are responsible for the sewer lines on their property. Damage caused by broken lines can cost thousands at the owner’s expense. Be proactive. Consider a sewer inspection by a qualified plumber before you decide to buy.

3. If It Isn’t Broken…

  • Part of routing home maintenance includes calling a plumber and scheduling a sewer inspection.
  • As a good rule of thumb, you should have your sewer inspected every 3 years.
  • Even if you are not experiencing any issues with your plumbing, it is still a good idea to have a plumber inspect the sewer lines regularly.

Inspecting a sewer line before it backs up or breaks will save you the hassle of bigger fixes later.

Whether you are experiencing a sewage problem or simply want to prevent an issue later on, consider a sewer inspection and diagnosis.

Home Repair & Maintenance: How to Empty a Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal is designed to crush up smaller pieces of food so that they can pass through the sewage system safely.

Once you flip the switch, it should empty automatically. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Something gets stuck, the water rises, and we eventually end up with a stinky kitchen sink.

Wish you could empty your garbage disposal without ever putting your hand down the drain?
