Why Should I Check the Sewer Line?

Homeowner’s in houses built more than 20 years ago, especially on lots with many trees, it is a good idea to have a video scan of the lateral sewer lines performed to ensure there are no issues or conditions that may cause future problems., and if your property has a lot of big trees, that video scan is worthwhile regardless of when your home was built.


This is a recent picture from a sewer line that was installed 8 years ago in an established Va Beach neighborhood during an extensive remodel. The tree roots had lifted the drain line causing a separation.

Many property owners are not aware that they are responsible for the sewer line from the house to the city main. Broken, flat, bellied, offset, or root-infested sewer lines can cause sewage to back up into a house leading to property damage. Insurance companies may pay for cleanup and restoration, but repair or replacement of the line is typically excluded, which can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
