Sewer systems are one of those things that if you have to think about it, it’s almost never good- and there’s almost always a mess.
Homeowners are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the sewer lines up to the point where they connect to the city sewer connection. Cracks, improperly sealed joints, or older/deteriorated pipes can result in root growth within the pipe. Low spots and rough areas in the pipe can result in a buildup of debris. Either of these conditions has the potential to restrict or block the flow of sewage to the city sewer and can result in flooding within the home. Repair or replacement of the main sewer line involves excavating the pipe and sometimes the street, and costs can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars.
I offer sewer scoping as a concierge service. I have a contract with a licensed Colorado Master Plumber who has over 26 years of experience in plumbing and drain cleaning. He has top of the line equipment and significant experience to go along with it. His narrated sewer scope video provides you with valuable information regarding the condition of the sewer line including recommendations on if, and how frequent, drain cleaning services should be performed to keep your sewer main healthy and trouble free.
