Information About Our Services

Why You Should Have a Main Sewer Line Inspection

Approximately 90% of the main sewer lines in the Los Angeles area and surrounding cities have conditions occurring within them that require attention. Many of the main sewer line pipes are made from materials that either wear out over time or can be damaged by seismic activity and root intrusions. Conditions or problems within a main sewer line can remain hidden and unknown for an extended period of time, thereby potentially causing further problems and more costly repairs. Having a main sewer line inspection can help to catch any current and future problems at an early stage, potentially saving money on repairs or replacements.

Find Out the Condition of the Main Sewer Line

There are many problems that can occur within the main sewer line, the most common being root intrusions that can cause blockages of the drain line and damage the pipe. Seismic activity can also cause damage and breaks in the sewer pipe. Many sewer pipes are made of materials that have a specific design life expectancy and may be worn out to the point of needing replacements or repairs.

Why You Should Inspect New Construction

Many brand-new structures are built on pre-developed lots. Frequently a new structure may still be connected to the original underground sewer line. Therefore, having a new building does not necessarily mean that you have a new main sewer line.

Our Equipment

Sewerline Check Professionals strives to remain an industry leader, always using the most state-of-the-art equipment available in order to provide our clients with the best and most accurate sewer line inspections in the industry. We use top-of-the-line color cameras, recording systems, and the most accurate locating device available.

The Sewerline Check Report

Sewerline Check provides a color, narrated DVD recording of the main sewer line's condition at the time of inspection, followed by a computer-generated written report via email. If repairs are recommended, the inspector will also provide a written professional opinion of the approximate repair costs, which can then be used as an unbiased point of comparison when acquiring repair estimates from any potential contractors.

No Conflict of Interest

Sewerline Check is proud to perform "Inspections ONLY." We do not perform any repair work or service to the sewer line, which allows us to remain completely objective and unbiased in our findings. Our goal is to provide our clients with the most factual information possible so that they can proceed equipped with the knowledge needed to take the next step.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a main sewer line?

The main sewer line is the main drain pipe leading from the exterior of the structure to the city (public) sewer pipe connection normally found under the street or alley. The main sewer line can also connect to a private sewage disposal system such as a septic tank or cesspool.

What is a main sewer line inspection?

The main sewer line is installed underground and therefore not visible. A main sewer line inspection involves sending a special camera into the sewer pipe so that its condition can be determined.

How do you get the camera into the main sewer line?

Many structures have main sewer line cleanouts. A cleanout is an access point with a removable cap to gain entry to the drain pipe. Cleanouts are normally used when the drain pipe is clogged and needs to be snaked out. When no cleanout is available, we can often gain access into the main sewer line by sending the camera down a vent pipe on the roof or by removing a toilet from the floor of the bathroom. The toilet is then reinstalled with a new seal when the inspection is completed.

Do I have a main sewer line?

All structures with any plumbing (sinks, showers/tubs, toilets, etc.) are required to have a main sewer line.

What is the difference between the main sewer line and the drain pipes under or in my building?

The drain pipes under or in the building are the building drain system. This system connects to the main sewer line (also known as the building sewer) just outside of the structure. The focus of a main sewer line inspection is on the drain pipe outside the structure. We do offer specialty inspections of the building drain system if required.

Does Sewerline inspect septic tanks?

No, we do not inspect the septic system. However, we do inspect the main line to the tank and can locate the entry point to the tank.

Why should I use Sewerline Check Professionals as opposed to a plumber for my inspection needs?

We, here at Sewerline Check Professionals, do not perform repairs or replacements for the sewer line. This allows us to be completely non-biased in our findings and recommendations.
