Reliable Sewer Line Inspections

At Commercial Real Estate Inspectors, LLC, we offer professional and thorough sewer line inspections using state of the art equipment. Each inspection is followed by a detailed RISK Assessment® Report by the end of the next business day. This will give you an idea of the health of your sewer system and what work may be necessary now or in the near future. If problems are found and immediate work is needed, we will include a quote of repair and maintenance costs.

Cutting-Edge Sewer Inspections

We combine our years of experience with high-quality equipment to deliver the best possible inspections in Los Angeles. Our inspectors use high-resolution, self-leveling color cameras to look inside your sewer lines, allowing us to pinpoint the exact location of any problems. This minimizes the time and money necessary to fix these issues. Each inspection is recorded and offered to you through a number of video formats.

We often find sewer issues such as:

  • Root intrusion
  • Grease buildup
  • Sagging lines
  • Cracked or broken lines
  • Rust buildup

Signs You Need Sewer Line Inspection

  • Gurgle from unused plumbing appliances - When the sewer line gets clogged, this can force air to come up and out of your plumbing's water. If this is happening then call in our Los Angeles sewer line inspection experts because pressure is building and something could have cracked.
  • Extra bugs and animals are attracted to the yard - If there's a crack in the sewer line, it may not always be easy to tell. If the neighborhood bugs and animals are feasting on your yard, it could be because of a leak in the sewer line.
  • Water coming up the drains - If there is sewer water coming up your plumbing appliances or dishwasher water coming up your kitchen sink, then call in our Los Angeles sewer line inspection experts, the water has nowhere to go and the pressure could have caused a burst sewer line.
  • Foul smells in the bathroom - Another sign of a sewer line needing inspection is the foul smell of a clogged sewer line. If you have any doubts, give us a call because your bathroom shouldn't smell like a sewer line.
  • A soggy yard - The most obvious sign of a sewer line needing repair is water coming up and out of the ground.
  • Slow drain - If you notice that more than one of your home's drains is slow, this may be a sign of a growing blockage and could lead to a clog and sewage line backup and should be inspected by a professional.

Effects of Age on Sewer Lines

Regardless of your outward appearance, once you reach a certain age, doctors generally recommend certain tests for the sake of health and safety - such as a colonoscopy after age 50. The same is true for buildings. From past experience approx. 60+ % of all building sewer lines, unfortunately regardless of age, have some issue that should be addressed even if it is simply to have it cleaned out.

A large number of sewer lines in Southern California have arrived at the ripe old age of 80! The average useful life of cast iron sewer lines is 40-80 years, depending on the material, who made them, and what harsh chemicals have been poured down the lines.

Issues a Sewer Line Inspection Can Uncover

• How much expected useful life the sewer lines have left in them with typical use and maintenance.

• The type of materials the sewer lines are.

• If there is root intrusion.

• If the sewer lines are properly connected to the city main sewer line.

• If any damage or displacement is in need immediate repairs or if routine cleanings will be sufficient.

• Is there are required cleanouts on the site - (Cleanout is an access point for sewer line cleaning)

• Where the sewer line runs underground - its location and depth.

• Determining if past repairs have been done to professional standards.

• If your sewer lines appear to have been receiving typical and routine maintenance.

• If the existing sewer lines can handle the current demands or anticipated future demands.

• If the sewer lines are connected to the city main or a septic system.

• If there have been past repairs.
