When looking at older homes; here’s a simple clue that the sewer line may have some problems. The plug/cap in this cast iron sewer cleanout would have originally been brass which can be difficult to remove.  Breaking or chiseling the brass cap is sometimes the only way to gain access.  The one in the picture below has been replaced with a newer ABS plastic one.  This may Indicate that some type of maintenance (snaking or jetting) to remove tree roots or other blockages has been performed.
