Why is it important to have your sewer lateral pipe inspected?
Sewer Lateral Inspections are now required in Morgan Hill!
Most sewer laterals were installed when the house was built, and most still have their original pipe unless prior repairs were made. Homes built in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s have pipes made from no longer used materials. As these materials age, they corrode, shift, and crack, making them vulnerable to tree roots and groundwater invading. These defects can result in wastewater seeping into the adjacent soil or overflows within the public sewage system (added groundwater coming in from broken, cracked pipes could lead to overflowing sewers).
This class will walk you through the strict city requirements for inspections of water-efficient plumbing. An overview of what the reporting includes and the lead time you need to consider. You’ll walk away knowing how to handle this new requirement successfully.
