What is a Sewer Scope Inspection?

A sewer scope inspection is a video inspection of a home’s sewer line system. A camera moves through the home’s wastelines and sends images back to the operator. The inspector can then see if there are any problems and if the sewer line is flowing correctly.

Why Should I Get a Sewer Scope Inspection?

A standard home inspection does not include an examination of the sewer system. That is because most sewer systems are located underground, and a regular home inspection consists of a visual account of the homes systems.

How Does Sewer Scoping Work?


A sewer scope inspection helps the home buyer understand if the home they are buying may have had any clogs or signs of sewer backups in the past, and if any existing problems need to be addressed. These repairs may cost thousands of dollars and should be addressed before purchasing the home.

What Is Included in a Sewer Scope Inspection?

Our inspectors not only understand the results of your sewer scope inspection and what the potential issues maybe, but we will also explain the problem.  A sewer scope inspection examines:

The inspection takes about an hour to complete. However, it can take longer if the sewer line has a blockage or clog. You can expect to receive an email containing both a video of the sewer scope inspection and a detailed report explaining the results a day after the  inspection has been completed.

Should I Get a Sewer Scope Inspection Before Buying a Home?

Yes, we highly recommend it.  A common issue that we encounter includes the fact that the previous homeowner is even unaware that there are any issues with the sewer line. A sewer scope inspection will allow you to relax knowing that the home you are buying is a sound investment and isn’t going to have any sewer problems in the immediate future.
