What Affects the Cost of a Sewer Inspection?

Sewer camera inspection Boston, MA

If you hear an unusual noise when using your drains, flushing the toilet, or running the taps, there may be something wrong with your sewer system. Scheduling sewer camera inspection services in Boston, MA, is the best way to pinpoint the source of the noises and begin repair work. That said, the cost of your sewer inspection may vary depending on several factors. New England Pipe Restoration discusses these further below:

Drainage Pipe Length

Since you'll be paying for more of the inspector's time, the further the camera has to travel, the higher the price will be. It's normal to be uncertain about the length of your sewer lines. You should expect to pay roughly the same amount for drain inspection as listed on your estimate, give or take a few dollars.

Whether Your Residence Features a "Cleanout"

A cleanout is a pipe that leads to the sewer system and provides simple and easy access for inspection. If you don't have one, the plumber must remove a toilet, lower a camera down the sewage line using a long metal rod, and reinstall the toilet. The cost of your sewer inspection will increase to account for the additional labor required to complete this process.

Whether You Will Need Additional Services

The pipe inspection cost does not include any further work performed by the plumber, such as clearing a clog, repairing broken pipe sections, or retrieving lost items. If we find potential issues or clogs during an inspection, we will provide you with the proper solutions to help prevent further damage to your property.
