Sewer Inspection . Certified Residential Inspection
By far this is one of the most under rated home inspection services. We understand that the home buying process is costly. But buying a home is not like buying a car where you can kick the tires drive off the lot and hope for the best. When sewer lines break or need repair they are extremely expensive and unforgiving. Our sewer inspection implements the use of a borescope camera. Pre Closing Inspection is able to inspect the sewer line from the house all the way out to the municipal service line. We check for obstructions that may exist ranging from line breaks, tree roots, grease build ups and sanitary napkins that get clogged. Most home buyers will be buying a home that's used. Often times the sewer lines that were installed may be constructed from old iron or clay. Both of these materials are subject to corrosion and will eventually breakdown and need to be replaced or treated. Contact us today or get a quote online for a Sewer Inspection. This is an Add-On Service and should be included with every Home Inspection. Average cost of a sewer line replacement ranges from $5,500 up to $16,000 and may require special right of way permits that can cost anywhere from $400 to $600 PER DAY. So don't get hit with the unexpected. Inspect it today and know your position.

Punctured sewer line now flooding basements after utility pole replaced
About 18 months ago, DTE went out and replaced a decaying utility pole. The sewer line was somehow pierced during the installation of the new pole, though, flooding neighbors' basements with filthy water.
The pole at Kendall just off the Southfield Service Drive in Detroit was replaced in late 2016, which was good. But the sewer line was punctured, which was bad, and nobody knew until about two weeks ago when seven basements along Ashton Street were flooded.
Waste in the water ‒ why Michigan needs a state septic code
Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a type of bacteria that serves as a key water quality indicator. Because E. coli grows naturally in the gastrointestinal tract of warm-blooded animals and humans, its presence in a water sample tells us that fecal pollution has reached that water source by some means.
