Sewer Line Inspection AKA Sewer Scope
“Out of sight out of mind!” Many people give little or no thought to a home’s sewer line. This is the pipe that runs from the house to the public sewer main or septic tank. Seldom do problems occur with this important part of the plumbing system, but when they do the results can be a costly mess to repair or replace.
Your team at High Tech Inspections has completed more than a thousand sewer line and septic inspections. Sewer scopes are outside of the scope of a home or building inspection, however we are trained and equipped to conduct sewer scopes as a separate service. We find a variety of issues in the main sewer lines of homes and businesses, including:
- Roots inside of pipes
- Pipes that have separated at joints
- Cracked and crushed pipes
- Old cast iron pipes that have deteriorated or become occluded
- Other older style metal pipes or Orangeburg pipe
- Grease build-up
- Installation issues – even in brand new homes
High Tech uses a variety of state-of-the-art fiber optic sewer line cameras that allow us to trace the sewer line and view its interior. If a problem is found we are able to locate and mark the problem area, helping to reduce the area of excavation and repair cost. After the inspection you will get a detailed photographic report.
