Home inspections are a necessary part of any home purchase. But how closely do they really inspect the sewer lines? A full sewer line inspection is probably a good idea any time you’re buying or selling a house.
Like anything else, pipes can age and wear out over time. This is true for an aging home or business, but it’s also true for public sewage systems. Think about all the expansion and new construction on the outskirts of Odessa and Midland. Those homes require plumbing and will eventually be connected to city sewage lines. This creates more wear and tear on the lines on the older homes at the center of town.
The age and increased pressure on sewer lines will lead to cracked or collapsed pipes – and there’s always the risk of leaks or tree roots damaging your pipes. As you can see, getting your water lines inspected is especially important here in the Permian Basin.
If you’re in the market to purchase a home, it’s critical to know the condition of the pipes. We all know that when it rains, it often floods here, making sanitary sewer overflows even more frequent. A pre-purchase pipe inspection will protect you to help make sure this doesn’t happen to your new home. These types of repairs can be expensive and are not usually covered by homeowner’s insurance.
