A sewer line is one of the most expensive things to repair in a home. A sewer scope inspection can help your house avoid getting more costly repairs. It will allow you to save money on a sewer scope inspection instead of paying for unexpected repairs in the near future.

Signs You need to get a sewer scope inspection.

There are a lot of minor issues with the sewer line that may have few or no symptoms at all. However, these minor issues may cause you to spend thousands for repair if not given some immediate attention. That is why, even if you do not see any of the issues mentioned above, it is still better to have a sewer scope inspection.

Sewer Scope Inspection Results – What To Look For

Here are the things that you and your inspector should look for during a sewer scope inspection:

  • Serious clogs or blockages in the sewer line

  • Cracks, damage, or imperfections in the line

  • The type of material used for the line (clay, concrete, plastic, metal, etc.)

  • Roots growing through the line

  • Separation or failure of the line

  • Potential damage or issues with the septic tank (if present)

Your inspector is a trained professional that will walk you through the entire process. He will help you understand the problems and things you will encounter during the inspection. It is excellent if you do not see any issues, meaning everything is still in good condition. If there are minor problems detected, you may be able to negotiate a better rate on the home or at least plan for the repair in your home budget during the next few years. On the other hand, major issues are a sign that you have to walk away from the sale. You may also require the homeowner to repair themselves, or at least reduce the cost of the property accordingly.
