If you are looking to buy a home, you are likely considering a home inspection. But have you considered obtaining a sewer inspection as well? Many potential homebuyers may not know that the New Hampshire law only allows septic repairs in certain circumstances, and if there are serious problems, the law requires a new system to be designed, installed and approved. The costs for a new septic system can be upwards of $20,000! After purchasing a new home, you don’t want to be burdened with this added expense. Before you purchase your home, a complete septic system inspection is worth the investment.

At Copperhead Inspection, we use current technology to identify potential problems in your septic and sewer system. According to costhelper.com, the average cost of a sewer line replacement is $7,493 with costs ranging from $50-250 per linear foot. Unfortunately, the scope of a home inspection is testing functional drainage at fixtures. This will rarely identify the problem in the sewer main but rather just find some hair clog at the trap. Additionally, sellers have a hard time disclosing what they cannot see.

If you are having issues with your plumbing, whether it’s clogging, backups, or slow drains, we can determine the issue. Whether the problem is caused by misaligned or broken pipes, internal obstructions, root intrusion, or another problem, we can identify the issue with certainty so you can get the problem fixed in the most economical way – and back to your daily routine.

Commercial Sewage Inspections

In addition to residential inspections, we also provide commercial sewer inspections. We consider the function of your building to determine the guidelines we use to analyze your sewage system.


Well Water Testing

Many who have private sewage systems also have a well on their property for water. We can provide a thorough water analysis to ensure your drinking water is healthy.
