Sewer Scope Inspection

Keep your home running smoothly with a healthy sewer system.

Sewer Scope Inspection

A sewer scope inspection thoroughly examines a property’s sewer line, starting from the house foundation to the city or HOA connection or septic tank. Utilizing a high-definition camera, the inspector identifies cracks, bellying, clogs, debris, and root intrusion. The service provides video footage and a comprehensive report highlighting any detected issues.

Getting a sewer scope inspection is crucial as it helps uncover potential problems early on, allowing for timely repairs or replacements. During real estate transactions, sellers may address identified issues to facilitate the sale. Not obtaining a sewer scope can lead to costly repairs in the future, making it a recommended step in property purchases.
