Drain & Sewer Inspection Tips to Live By
While the inspection and cleaning of sewer lines is a messy business, it is necessary if homeowners want to avoid the trouble of complicated and costly plumbing issues.
At Perry Plumbing, we know that sewers and drains need to have smooth, uninterrupted water flow.
Why is it important to inspect sewer lines?
Old sewage pipes run the risk of disintegration over time. The bad part is that these pipes are oftentimes out of sight. This can cause water buildup around your house.
When standing water builds up and stays around your house, you run the risk of compromising its structural stability. More than that, standing water oftentimes becomes the fertile ground for infestation—of both germs and pests. Raw sewage carries all manner of bacteria, which can pose serious health risks. It needs to be disposed of properly.
Another common problem when it comes to sewers is the presence of tree roots. When they get in the way, they can cause damage to the sewer lines, resulting damaged pipes and more headaches for homeowners.
How often should sewer lines be inspected?

However, it’s better to know what’s in your sewr lines before problems start appearing on their own. Without regular maintenance, blocked lines can lead to more complex problem of altogether blocked drainage or busted sewage pipes. With drains and sewage pipes, as with everything else in your home, regular maintenance should be observed to avoid problems that are more complicated.
