Every house has a sewer line, and every sewer line can become obstructed or damaged.
WHAT IS A SEWER SCOPE?
A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line from the house to the city sewer. The purpose of a sewer scope is to discover and report defects that are visible in the lateral sewer line. Additionally, the scope usually identifies the material type of the sewer line.
A sewer scope serves exclusively as a visual observation of the lateral sewer line without any modifications or repairs being performed.
DO I NEED A SEWER SCOPE?
If you are purchasing a home, you absolutely should have a sewer scope inspection done. If you already own a home, it is also a good idea to have a sewer scope inspection done periodically to ensure the condition of your pipe.
Some indications and signs of needing a sewer scope inspection:
- Trees (especially large trees) are growing near the sewer line area
- Water backing up into the home
- A home built 20+ years ago could have easily damageable pipes made of clay
- Rich green patches near the sewer line could indicate a leak
You will be emailed a video of your Sewer Scope Camera Inspection after the completion of the inspection. Please feel free to email us with any questions you may have prior to scheduling or regarding your inspection: firstname.lastname@example.org
