A sewer inspection is a detailed look into a property's connection to the sewer lines and municpal waste disposal systems. Often, sewer lines are made of older materials (like clay) that can degrade over time, and in other cases a sewer line can be interrupted by tree roots and other encumberances on a property. There are various methods for performing a sewer inspection, but they're often performed by a licensed plumber or professional with expertise in drains and sewer lines. Specialized equipment and cameras can be used to explore the sewer line in a non-invasive manner.
