A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A sewer line is often one of the most costly things to repair in a home. Getting a sewer scope inspection can help you avoid investing in a home that has serious issues with the sewer/septic system.
Sewer-scoping the line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and homebuyers to be aware of. For example, if there is a damp depression in the lawn above the sewer line, or if there is backflow into the home, a sewer scope inspection can be critical to identifying and confirming these problems, which must be addressed immediately.
We offer sewer scope along with the standard home inspection so that our clients save money and time requesting it together. Stand-alone service is also available.
