What Is A Sewer Scope Inspection?

Sewer scopes are video inspections of your home’s lateral sewer line. We insert a small video camera into the line to view if the sewer line is clogged, broken, or in great shape! 

Once the inspection is finished, your inspector will provide you with a detailed report about their findings, and their opinion about the quality and condition of the sewer line.

Do I Need A Sewer Scope Inspection?

Whether you’re buying a new home or a home built in the 1950’s, it is important to have your sewer lines inspected. We recommend having a sewer scope inspection done on all ages of homes. Sewer lines are costly to repair, and with getting a sewer scope inspection your avoiding investing in a home that has extensive sewer/septic line damage.

If you get an early report on your sewer line’s condition, you can fix potential issues sooner, saving you money in the long run. 

How Much Does It Cost?

Our Sewer Scope inspections cost $299. If added onto a home inspection, the price is only $199

Please note, that although this may seem steep – the cost of repairing a broken sewer line costs around $250-$300 – per foot of repaired line. Repairing and replacing an entire sewer line or a line with major structural faults could easily run you thousands of dollars.

How Long Does It Take?

Sewer Scope inspections typically take about 30 minutes. We send you the report the same day!

What are we looking for?

This is a big problem in homes that were built in the 1950s or earlier. Many of these homes used “Orangeburg Pipe”, a type of pipe that is made from layers of wood pulp and tar, pressed together tightly.Over time, these pipes disintegrate and collapse. If the sewer line is built out of Orangeburg pipe, it must be replaced. Orangeburg pipes aren’t the only concern, though. Even pipes made of PVC, metal, or other materials can fail, as the ground shifts and compresses the piping.
Tree roots can compress and crack sewer lines as they grow, and even make their way into the line itself. Depending on the extent of damage, you may be able to replace a single section of the pipe, or you may be forced to replace the entire sewer line.
Older metal pipes made of steel or iron can corrode and break down over time. In addition, all types of pipe, including PVC and ABS plastic, can leak if a joint or another pipe fitting is knocked out of place or damaged.
