We are often asked about the details and necessity of sewer scope inspections. We also get asked just what the heck they are!
Sewer scope inspections are an important part of the home inspection process. They allow us to take a closer look at the sewer lines and identify any potential problems. Sewer scope inspections are typically conducted with a small camera that is inserted into the sewer line. This allows us to get a close up view of the inside of the pipe and identify any issues.
One of the most common problems that we see during sewer scope inspections is tree root intrusion. Tree roots can enter the sewer line through small cracks and breaks in the pipe. Once they are inside, they can grow and cause blockages.
Another common problem is grease buildup. Grease can build up on the inside of the sewer line and cause blockages. This is often seen in homes where there is a lot of cooking done. If we find any problems during the sewer scope inspection, we will make recommendations for repairs. In some cases, the repairs can be made by the homeowner. In other cases, it may be necessary to hire a professional plumber. Sewer scope inspections are an important part of the home inspection and plumbing inspection process. They allow us to take a closer look at the sewer lines and identify any potential problems.
