What is a Sewer Scope Inspection?
Sewer Scope Inspections are used to determine the current condition of the sewer line, and make known any potential damages that cannot be detected otherwise.
- Can be added to a comprehensive home inspection
- Can be offered as a stand-alone service
Description: *A sewer scope is a video inspection of the lateral sewer line from the house at or near the foundation to the city, HOA tap, or the septic tank. The inspector runs a camera scope on a 100-foot cord down the sewer line, stopping at the sewer main/septic tank, or until an obstruction prevents it from going any further.
