Common issues homeowners find with their sewer lines


Kerry Tidwell, General Manager of ARS/Rescue Rooter of Indianapolis, discussed a topic most people do not like to talk or think about, their sewer lines. It is very important to take preventative actions before your sewer lines have any major problems. When a problem occurs, it’s one of those things you won’t be able to put off. Most homeowners say this would be their worst nightmare. And sewer pipe replacement jobs typically run from $5000-$20,000.

How can you get ahead of the curve? Call ARS/Rescue Rooter to have one of our professional plumbers run a video sewer camera down your sewer line to check for any potential problems or blockages. Our camera is commercial-grade so the technology and the reach of the camera are much better than anything you can rent from home improvement stores.

If you’re thinking about buying a new home, get the sewer line inspected as part of your home inspection process. In addition to alerting you about potential damage, we can also determine what type of material the sewer line is made from—and if it’s up to modern codes. Having that knowledge before you buy a house is priceless. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
