Sewer Line Videos - Important if you are buying a Howell Home

If you are buying a home in the Howell Michigan area that is built before the mid 60's you may want to have your sewer line inspected.

Not this is not a joke. Many sewer lines in homes built between about 1940 and the early 1960's are failing these days. And sewers are an expensive problem to fix.

In any case the link above shows a video of a failed sewer line. By having this inspection done during our contractor's inspection we saved the buyer about $4,000 and a lot of grief.
