A sewer backup is potentially an expensive event for a homeowner. Sewer line repair can also be extremely expensive if it requires a lot of excavation and potentially house-to-street repairs. A cheap sewer line repair can cost $5000, and once you get into the street, it can quickly reach $10,000 to $25,000, making it one of the most expensive repairs you could face during home ownership. A sewer scope test can help identify potential problems that might arise.
A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line leading from the house at/near the foundation and connecting to the city or HOA tap or septic tank. A sewer line is often one of the most costly things to repair in a home. Getting a sewer scope inspection can help you avoid investing in a home that has serious issues with the sewer/septic system.
From old rusted cast iron pipes to newly built plastic with possible bellies, every home can benefit from a sewer scope inspection. This service verifies the condition of the sewer pipe under the home and yard and can also locate exactly where deficiencies are found in the pipe. A narrated video and also a written report are included.
Sewer line issues are among the most common issues found after an inspection is complete and the only way to find a main sewer line issue before it is too late is to have a professional sewer scope. Sewer-scoping the line can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and homebuyers to be aware of. For example, if there is a damp depression in the lawn above the sewer line, or if there is backflow into the home, a sewer scope inspection can be critical to identifying and confirming these problems, which must be addressed immediately.
