A sewer scope inspection is to determine the condition of the property’s sewer line and to confirm the system is functioning properly. A faulty sewer line could mean a big expense later for a potential new home owner. Common sewer line problems are root intrusion, holes, pooling, cracks, and pipe separation. A functioning sewer line may have problems that do not currently affect the performance of the line. However, these problems may cause a future sewer backup leading to an unexpected emergency line repair or replacement.
About the Process:
We will insert a video camera into the sewer line through the home’s sewer clean-out. If no obstructions are encountered, we will inspect from the clean-out to the city main. If problems with the line are found, we are able to accurately pinpoint the location of the trouble area. The problem area will be marked on the ground surface when possible. Upon completion of the sewer scope, you will be informed as to whether the line passed inspection. A full report with pictures will be sent via email. A video of the sewer scope will be sent, as well, if there are any issues.
