Find Blockages with Sewer Scope Inspections
Sewer Scope Inspections of your water and sewer lines are performed with a video camera attached to a snake-like cable to examine the home’s sewer line. This privately-owned pipeline leads from the house to the publicly owned main sewer line or septic tank. A sewer inspection can reveal damage to the pipes, blockages, and other problems. It also can spot potential problem areas before they develop into serious issues or hazards.
The Importance of Inspecting Your Sewer Lines
A sewer scope inspection is an important part of any home purchase or sale. It provides a thorough assessment of the condition of your main sewer line, which carries wastewater from your home to the municipal sewer system or septic tank.
A sewer scope inspection will help you identify potential problems before they become more serious and costly to repair. During a sewer scope inspection, an experienced technician will insert a flexible camera into your main sewer line through an existing cleanout access point. The camera then sends images directly to the technician’s laptop computer for easy viewing and evaluation. This process allows them to identify any blockages, cracks, roots, or other damage that may have occurred in the line over time. These images can also provide evidence of previous repairs that have taken place inside the pipe.
Once the technician has completed their assessment, they can provide you with a detailed report outlining all findings from the inspection as well as recommendations for necessary repairs or maintenance that should be done in order to keep your main sewer line functioning properly.
This report can then be used by you and/or prospective buyers if you are selling your property as proof that all necessary maintenance has been done on the property’s plumbing system prior to its sale.
By having a professional perform a Sewer Scope Inspection before purchasing or selling your home or commercial building, you will have peace of mind knowing that any potential plumbing issues have been identified and addressed in advance so they don’t become more serious down the road.
