We recommend home owners obtain a
sewer inspection if your home is older than 20 years.
Although the sewer line may be fairly new as compared to
homes built before 1950, for example, tree roots can
still clog up a 20-year-old sewer line.
Reasons to Inspect the Sewer Line:
Tree roots growing into sewer lines is a common problem.
Roots crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer
line, latching on to other debris that typically cause
backups such as grease or eggshell waste. Sometimes
chemicals can kill the trees roots but if the roots
reappear, the pipe may be damaged and require excavation
to fix the problem.

Homes that were constructed prior to city sewers
often relied on cesspools. After cities
installed public septic systems, sometimes the
cesspools were left intact and connected to the
sewer line. You won't know unless you inspect
Many homes built in the 1950s have sewer lines
made from tar paper called Orangeburg pipes.
These disintegrate and collapse over time. If a
home has Orangeburg, the sewer line definitely
needs to be replaced.
