Inspecting a sewer clog with a Rigid SeeSnake in Tracy, California

A sewer inspection or drain inspection might sound like a big deal, but it’s a quick, affordable, and noninvasive way to diagnose big problems with your plumbing system.

Our team uses some of the industry’s best inspection equipment to find your sewer clogs, drain leaks, and other drain system problems within minutes, saving you time and money. And if we do find an issue, we can often perform the necessary drain cleaning, slab leak repair, or sewer repair in the same visit, saving you even more.

Do I Need a Sewer Inspection?

Even though they perform an essential function for our homes, sewers are often neglected. Small problems pile up, until you have a major leak, break, or clog on your hands. As sewer water is so hazardous to health and sewer pipes are more challenging to replace than many other pipes, you end up with an expensive hassle.

Getting a drain inspection can prevent this from happening. You catch small issues before they turn in thousand dollar repair jobs. If you have the following warning signs, you should get a sewer inspection done:

  • Trees growing into your sewer line
  • Bad odors from your plumbing or from outside your home
  • Water backing up, often into your bathtub or utility sink
  • Overflowing toilet, especially if frequent
  • Unexplained puddles of water in your lawn
  • Sunken patches in your lawn, especially if around the sewer line

Even if you don’t have a noticeable problem with your sewer lines, it is still a wise idea to get a drain inspection in the following circumstances:

  • The city has done work on sewer lines near you
  • You have large trees near your sewer line
  • Your home is over 20 years old and the sewer has not been updated
  • You know you have an older type of sewer pipe

You may also benefit from a sewer inspection if you intend to sell your home, and want to reduce your liability in case your sewer does have problems. Potential home buyers will be put at ease if you’ve had a sewer inspection performed, especially if there have been problems with the sewers in the area or if you have trees in your yard or other warning signs that something may be wrong with your sewer. A quick sewer inspection can make selling your home much easier. Sewer inspections are also required by Tracy and other cities under specific circumstances, such as during new construction.
