What is the estimated cost?

Inspection of private sewer laterals may cost from $300-$800 depending on the Qualified Contractor chosen. If the private sewer lateral lines cannot be accessed it may be necessary to install a new cleanout pine, which can range from $2,000 to $4,000 plus the inspection cost. Fixing serious structural or operation defects can vary widely in cost, with a full lateral replacement including new clean-out costing on average between $10,000 - $15,000.
