The question is, how does one tell if a sewer inspection is needed. It is pretty simple. If you have slow draining in the bathroom and kitchen sinks, that’s one sign you need a sewer inspection.

If you see an untrimmed patch of wildly growing verdure in your yard, chances are there is a sewer pipe that runs underneath the surface at that spot and it is broken or damaged. If the ground in one spot is soggy, it must be the same kind of problem. Instead of digging up the whole yard, call your plumber to come and do a sewer inspection for you.
