What Is Involved During a Lateral Sewer Line Inspection?
A lateral line inspection can only be performed by a highly qualified professional. You can count on them to provide a thorough inspection of the entire line, checking for any clogs, leaks, or signs of corrosion.
During the examination of your lateral sewer line, you can rely on your professional plumbers to:
- Initiate the process of pulling the permit for the home’s inspection
- Arrange to have a municipal official present during the inspection process
- Set up a high-definition camera to capture detailed images inside the lateral line
- Submit the paperwork for the inspection along with the video of the line
Following the inspection, you will either receive a certificate of competency, or you will receive a defect letter. If your home has been deemed competent, this certificate will serve as a marker of the lateral line’s health for another 10 years. On the other hand, if it turns out that you receive a defect letter, you will be required to arrange for the appropriate repairs before the end of six months.
Why Lateral Sewer Line Inspections Are Important
Because most people associate sewer lines with the main municipal line of the entire city, many homeowners are not aware that they even have responsibilities for their lateral sewer line. This lateral line is the pipe that connects each home to the city mainline in the first place. If you are selling a house, you will want to have the lateral pipe completely repaired or replaced if you want the value of your home to go up.
On the other hand, if you are buying a home, the status of the lateral line’s current health and the amount of maintenance it has received can provide leverage in the final selling price. In either situation, both the sellers and buyers of a house can come to a mutual agreement about who will oversee repairing or replacing the lateral sewer line, which will in turn help with negotiations on the cost. This is why scheduling an inspection of your lateral line from Roques Plumbing is so important, whether you are considering buying or selling a residence.
