Sewer Lateral Replacement

Sewer Lateral Replacement
When selling a house ๐Ÿ in the San Francisco Bay Area ๐ŸŒ‰ one of the most important things to keep in mind (that your realtor should explain to you) is that many cities have sewer lateral compliance point of sale ๐Ÿ’ต requirements.
This means that before a home ๐Ÿ  can be sold, you have to have a local plumber ๐Ÿช  come out and do a sewer lateral inspection where they take a long thin camera and they put it into a pipe connected to the sewer (usually through a toilet or a cleanout pipe of some sort).
They run this camera ๐Ÿ“ท all the way down through the sewer pipe to where it meets the sewer connection in the street.๐Ÿšง
They are looking for any damage or issues with the sewer pipe (usually from tree roots, misalignment/movement, or just decay from being very old).
In one of our recent sales in San Bruno we ran into this issue where a section of the sewer pipe needed to be replaced. Here is a quick before, during, and after video๐ŸŽฅ where our friends at @DiscountPlumbingSF helped us out!
