Sewer Scoping Service from Home Health Inspections LLC
The fact of the matter is, sewer lines break over time, and often the cost of the repairs falls on the home owners shoulders. When thinking about closing on a real estate transaction, getting a sewer inspection should be at the top of the due diligence checklist.
Most people would never know if there was an issue with their sewer system. This is why it is important to protect your potential investment by having your sewage line checked by a certified professional who has access to the necessary equipment to perform a sewer scoping. If a problem is found, repairs can be used as leverage when negotiating terms to close on your new home, if these issues are left unnoticed, hefty repair costs could fall on the new owner’s shoulders.
What exactly is a sewer scope inspection?
A sewer scope is a special camera used to check the lateral sewer lines that comes from your home and connects to the main sewer line in your neighborhood. Sewer scoping is done to reveal blockages in the system, or other damages that may have occured.
If sewage contaminants have been found in your water supply, there is a backflow problem in your home, or there is a depression in your lawn above the sewer line, a sewer inspection should be conducted immediately. A sewer scope will confirm the source of the issue, and allow you to take prompt action to make repairs.
Sewer scoping is not typically a required part of the home inspection process, but it should be. If you are buying a home, making a sewer scope part of the due diligence process could save you 10s of thousands of dollars if a problem is discovered. If you have owned your home for a while, sewer scoping can uncover minor issues before they turn into big problems for your home and your wallet.
