Sewer Inspection

Trustworthy Sewer Inspections For
East Bay Homeowners.

All Rooter Companies Do NOT Treat Sewer Inspections
The Same. Here’s What We Do To Make Sure Ours
Are Fair And Accurate.

Depending on which East Bay community you live in, you might be required to undergo a sewer inspection before you can remodel, sell your home, or upgrade your water meter. One way or another, the East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD) will need to approve it. Before that can happen, you will need a technician from a certified company to inspect your home’s sewer lateral.

The problem is not all sewer and rooter companies are 100% transparent. Some incentivize employees to find problems on every single inspection. As you can guess, that completely DESTROYS the integrity of the whole process.

That’s why we do things differently. We do NOT encourage our technicians to find problems. Instead, we train them to do a thorough job and ALWAYS act in the best interest of the homeowner. We pay them well, and they’re not compensated based on commission. They have no incentive to “rack up a bill” or recommend unnecessary repairs.

What OUR Inspections Are Like

First, we perform a video inspection of your existing sewer lateral. If we don’t see any root intrusions, breaks, or other issues, we’ll recommend a pressure test with a representative from the EBMUD. If your sewer lateral holds the required pressure, they issue us a certificate, which we present to you.

When everything goes as planned, it really is as simple as that.

What If We Do Find A Problem?

If we do encounter problems and repairs or full sewer replacement is necessary, we provide you with an accurate estimate. Installation is more costly and takes longer than repairs…usually, but we determine the best course of action on a case by case basis.

Then it’s just a matter of completing the repairs perfectly and calling the EBMUD for the pressure test when we’re done. The goal is to get your certificate of compliance, so you can get back to doing whatever you need to do, whether it’s selling your home, remodeling, or replacing your water meter.
