A sewer scope inspection is exactly what it sounds like. A professional inspector will inspect the sewer line of your home by inserting a flexible borescope camera into your pipes. Then, the camera will be guided into the sewer line, which drains your home’s wastewater into the sewer system.
Using this camera, the inspector will perform a comprehensive inspection of the sewer line, and look for things like cracks, damage to the lines, roots that have grown through the pipe, and any other potential concerns. The process takes about an hour. Then, your inspector will tell you what they have found, and provide you with a comprehensive, written report about the sewer line’s condition.
A sewer scope inspection is quick, affordable, and can save you thousands of dollars if an issue is found. So whether you’re buying a new home or suspect an issue with your home’s sewer line, you should definitely consider a sewer scope inspection.
