Sometimes is not necessary to change the house’s pipes. Inspecting the house’s underground will help to determine how deep is your sewer line and if there is any damage to the pipes.
The reason for doing this inspection is to determine if it is necessary to replace the waste line piping before doing any remodeling on the house’s basement. The problem with not replacing the pipes right before the remodeling is done could create future issues after your remodeling is complete, and you will have to demo and/or remove the finished floor (Tile, Hardwood floor, or carpet) and cut the concrete floor to be able to replace it with new pipes.
A professional plumber can determine if you need a sewer line replacement with a camera inspection. This will involve threading a digital camera through your sewer line to view and record the inside of the pipe. These cameras are qualified for noticing cracks, holes, collapsed pipe sections, and root infiltrations. If the plumber sees any of these common problems, they could recommend a sewer pipe cleanout or a pipe replacement, depending upon the severity.
