Hershey Sewer Inspection
Many homes have an outdated sewer line, and although the materials used for the sewer may be outdated, in many cases these sewers are able to function for a long time before they start to break down. However, they do almost inevitably start to create problems after some time requiring a Hershey PA sewer inspection, no matter how well the homeowner maintains their plumbing system and ensures that food and waste are properly disposed of. Piping can start to break down, tree roots can invade, weather can cause cracks and collapses, and many other problems can pop up in spite of your best efforts.
Older Sewer Lines Aren’t Built to Last
Homes that were built about 40 to 50 years ago, and even a few newer homes, have sewer piping constructed from materials that aren’t the most durable. For example, modern sewer piping uses epoxies and other materials that are designed to last for several decades. Older homes may have cast iron or clay sewer pipes that can be invaded by tree roots; creating a wide range of issues such as slowed down sewer lines, blockages, and complete collapses. In general, older sewer lines often need maintenance or replacement, and if you have an older home you may need to get a sewer inspection.

The problem of course is not just limited to older homes, as newer homes can have sewer issues that result from weather related piping damage, tree root invasions into cracks, faulty installations, degradation from improper waste disposal and more. If sewer lines are used for improper waste disposal they can start to break down or crack, even when they are made from high quality and durable materials. In some cases there’s nothing you can do to prevent sewer issues, and that’s why a Hershey PA sewer inspection may be needed in several situations.
