Sewer Scope Inspections

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.

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. 

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.
