How do I know if my sewer lateral needs repair or replacement?

Some signs that a lateral may need repair or replacement include frequently clogged drains and an odor of sewage. To accurately assess the condition of your sewer lateral, a Closed-Circuit Television Video (CCTV) inspection is needed. Possible deficiencies that may be detected include displaced joins, open joints, root intrusion, substantial deterioration of the line, cracks, leaks, sags, and inflow and /or infiltration of extraneous water, fats, oils, and grease, or sediment deposits.
