How to avoid sewer problems or gain the upper hand in a home purchase
Before you buy a property …
Get to know what’s underground
Do your part to avoid these
problems and prevent pollution
of our lakes, streams, and
Steps you can take
But Can I afford a sewer
The truth is... you can't afford NOT to!
Sewer lateral repairs or replacement can be extremely expensive averaging $5,000 to $15,000. Typically it will come as a surprise to property owners when sewage starts coming out of sinks, toilets, bathtubs and other drains. Property owners should plan for sewer lateral maintenance and repair just as they do for other major working systems of the building or residence.
To protect the value of your investment and avoid the surprises associated with costly repairs; we recommend inspecting a building's sewer lateral every 3-5 years, and/or prior to purchasing the property. Even a sewer lateral in new construction can be prone to breaks or problems if proper care to bed the pipe was not taken during installation. Finding these problems before the warranty expires may save you thousands of dollars in repairs or maintenance.
