In San Diego, city policy states that property owners are responsible for maintaining their home’s sewer lateral pipe from the property all the way up to the connection with the municipal sewer main. This connection may be located past the property line, in the street or on an easement.
Are you prepared for a plumbing crisis? Most people would probably answer no. In fact, the information in the paragraph above might come as a surprise to many San Diego property owners. If reading this is causing you to worry about the condition of your plumbing, it’s time to schedule a professional pipe inspection.
Benefits of a Pipe Inspection.
- Undetected sewer problems can lead to very costly repairs. Backed-up pipes can cause flooding on your property – or even a neighboring property – which many insurance policies don’t fully cover. During a thorough pipe inspection, a plumber can identify and fix small problems before they get out of control. Don’t wait for a minor problem to turn into a major plumbing emergency.
- A sewer pipe inspection can help a plumbing expert recommend a proactive preventive maintenance plan that’s tailored to the unique needs of your home or business sewage system. Preventive maintenance is especially important if you own an older property where plumbing issues are more likely to occur due to outdated materials and buildup of waste over time. Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with knowing a professional plumber is taking good care of your pipes.
Increase property values:
- Many property inspectors and real estate agents recommend a professional pipe inspection as part of the process of buying a new property. If potential buyers know the home or business has a clean bill of health from a plumber, it could be the tipping point in their decision to close on the deal.
Improve water flow to your home or business:
- Clogged pipes can restrict water flow. While this may not seem like a major problem, consider everything on your property that uses water and how often you rely on appliances, sinks, toilets and showers. A pipe inspection can detect problems that affect water flow, and your plumber can recommend the best way to fix them. Proper water flow can benefit many aspects of your home or business.
