Did you know that homeowners are responsible for the sewer line that runs from the home to the main municipal sewer line? The cost to repair a sewer line can be expensive, but also disruptive, as it often requires excavating your yard and pavement. These problems can be detected early with a sewer scope inspection.
Sewer Scope Inspection
A sewer scope inspection is an additional service we at Erie Inspection Service offer to inspect and evaluate the condition of the lateral sewer line that runs from the home to the city sewer or septic tank.
When to Inspect Your Sewers
We recommend a sewer scope inspection for all homes, but especially for homes that are older than 20 years, as they tend to have clay, cast iron, and concrete lines which can create an array of issues.
The most common issues found are pipe separations, offsets, collapses, blockages, tree roots, and grease. Any one of these issues can create sewage problems that will affect the plumbing system of the home.
How We Perform Sewer Scope Inspections
We use industry-leading cameras which allow us to snake through sewer lines and gain access to an essential, and otherwise inaccessible, area of the home or property. Our cameras allow us to inspect up to 150 feet of a lateral sewer line at a time. Once the inspection is complete, we provide you with a written report as well as a video recording of our findings. In addition to this, we guarantee your sewer line and inbound water line for 12 months following an acceptable sewer scope inspection.
