The sewer line is an incredibly important part of a home which is often taken for granted and goes unnoticed until there is a problem. Many sewer lines can operate without problems for years, or even decades, with little to no maintenance. A common condition that can cause problems with sewer lines is root intrusion from trees, where the roots break through the sewer line and can limit or stop water flow. Just because a house was recently built does not make it immune from sewer line issues. Often times new houses can have sewer line issues which are a result of poor installation, or settlement of the soil. Typically the only way to know whether a house has sewer line issues is to have an inspection performed on the sewer line, which involves putting a camera through the sewer line from the house all the way to the tap where it connects to the city's sewer system.
Many people do not perform a sewer inspection thinking that it is a waste of money, but this couldn't be further from the truth! For less than $150, you can find out the condition of your sewer line and could save tens of thousands of dollars in costs if there is a problem with the sewer line. Since sewer lines are buried deep under ground and can run under large portions of the house, a full sewer line replacement can cost in the ballpark of $30,000, and sometimes more.
