Sewer Scopes

Sewer Scope Inspection

A sewer scope inspection is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line from the house at or near the foundation to the city/HOA tap or septic tank.

The purpose of a sewer scope is to discover defects within the pipe, such as root intrusions, cracks/collapse, sag/bellies, offsets, warpage, blockages, etc. Because the sewer lateral is only visible with a sewer camera, these defects will typically go unnoticed during a general home inspection. 

Your inspection comes with a photo report and/or a link to a private Youtube video.

Further, a full drain replacement can cost upwards of 10 grand! So the question is, can you really afford NOT to have your sewer line inspected?  

***see the short video I recorded below on Orangeburg drains, a very common type of drain on houses built prior to the 1970s.
