A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line from the house at or near the foundation to the city tap by inserting a camera into the sewer line from a plumbing clean-out or vent. The purpose of a sewer scope is to discover and report defects that are visible in the lateral sewer line such as damaged pipes, root intrusion, corrosion, grease build-up, improper slope, offsets and blockages that can be very costly to repair. The scope typically also identifies the material used within the sewer line itself.
Tempest Inspections recommends having the sewer line scoped if you are planning on buying a home or having sewage back-ups and drainage issues. The sewer scope can be done during the same appointment as a home inspection saving you and your realtor time. You will also get a written report for the sewer scope along with a video.
The sanitary condition of a building is only as good as the health of its main septic line. Buying a home with a poorly maintained sanitary line is not only a health risk, but it also turns into a huge money pit down the road.
To protect your family and hard-earned savings from the perils of a malfunctioning sanitary system, have it inspected before you buy the property.
Through a non-invasive inspection of the main sanitary line our experts will know that there’s a problem when they see one. At the end of the day, you will be handed a detailed inspection report outlining major and minor defects as well as affordable corrective measures.
