A Top Priority for Home Buyers
Every reasonable home buyer inspects a list of items before making a down payment on a home. Obviously, there are things to inspect such as electrical systems, faucets, sinks, and water heaters. Above all, a sewer line inspection should be a top priority.
In Delaware County and surrounding areas, outdoor sewer lines are often susceptible to be penetrated and damaged by tree roots. A cracked or damaged pipe can put the entire home’s sewer line in danger of blockages and leaks.
This can be frustrating and more costly for home buyers. For this reason, a plumbing and sewer line inspection are needed.
Sewer Lines Could Crush Your Dreams
Consider this horrific scenario for home buyers – You’ve spent months and countless hours searching for your dream home. You finally found it, and its at the top-end of your budget.
You’ve done your research and hired a reputable home inspector. The inspection came back clean and you’re ready to move in. Hurray! A few months pass and you’ve encountered a problem.
A few unsettling things are happening:
- There’s a funny, sour smell in your basement
- Toilets are slow and gurgling from the drains
- Water has settled onto your basement floor
You’ve called a local plumber and they’ve informed you there’s most likely a blockage or leak in your sewer line. But, where?
Unfortunately, those impressive trees in the front yard have gone seeking water. Where did the tree roots find their source? Your sewer line.
The bad news doesn’t stop there. The reputable plumber you called discovers the blockage or leak is under that welcoming yard that attracted you to the property. Now, the yard has to be dug up, so that the plumber can replace the sewer line. Horrific.
Alternatively, this could’ve all been prevented with a plumbing inspection and sewer line camera inspection.
Sewer Camera Inspections
Like we found out above, checking the condition of the main sewer drain is important.
If the dream home that you’ve had your eye on is an older home, you probably have larger trees on or near the property. Homebuyers looking for homes in areas like Havertown, Broomall, and Malvern know what we’re talking about.
Unfortunately, where there are trees, there are usually tree roots, and they love to find water inside of your sewer. A local plumber such as Dream Team Plumbing can provide a master sewer line camera inspection.
Don’t take the chance of buying your dream home without a sewer line inspection.
