When selling a house 🏠in the San Francisco Bay Area 🌉 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 💵 requirements.

This means that before a home 🏠 can be sold, you have to have a local plumber 🪠 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 📷 all the way down through the sewer pipe to where it meets the sewer connection in the street.🚧

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 video🎥 where our friends at @DiscountPlumbingSF helped us out!
