If you are continually having problems or have repeated service calls for the same issue
Over time the ground can settle or shift; causing sewer pipes to dislodge, crack or even collapse. This prevents the proper flow of sewage and wastewater to the municipal sewer line which results in a clog.
If trees surround the property and home
Tree roots can be a source of continual problems for sewer lines. Tree roots are the main culprit of damaged sewer lines. Tree roots will infiltrate sewer line joints and cause pipes to dislodge and break. We’ve seen even the tiniest roots make their way into the smallest imperfections or cracks in a sewer line and expand. When those roots grow large enough, they can break the sewer pipes, leading to extensive excavation. Don’t let this happen to you.
Buying or selling a home?
Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure to request a sewer and drain video inspection. Most home inspections don’t check sewer lines. At AAA Sewer Service Inc., we utilize state-of-the-art technology to inspect your piping and sewer lines.
When your house is 20+ years old.
If the home was built in post-1940 through the 1950s, sewer lines were often constructed with Orangeburg pipes (tar paper construction – or wood fibers bound with adhesives and coated with tar). Homes built prior to the 1960s used a different type of sewer line which may not hold up to today’s residential or business code standards.
AAA Sewer Service Inc. uses state-of-the-art technology
Our technicians are experienced in using camera and video technology to inspect sewer and drain lines for roots, clogs, potential cracks or damage to drain and sewer lines.
AAA Sewer techs invite our clients to watch the video feedback as the camera makes its way through your lines. Our technicians are experienced and will be able to tell you what materials were used to construct your sewer line and if it holds up to today’s standards and codes.
The cost of a sewer line inspection is minimal and can prevent huge expenditures in the future.
If you live in a home that is over 20 years old, it’s always a good idea to schedule a sewer and drain video inspection to make sure the tree roots, shrubs, or age have not impacted or infiltrated your sewer lines.
