Seattle Sewer Scope Inspection
A home inspection is essential when buying a home. It is a significant part of the real estate transaction, whether you are buying or selling. Although major components are inspected, one important system is often not included – the sewer line.
A typical home inspection doesn’t cover the sewer line as it is buried in the ground. But here at Property Inspector, LLC, we provide an exemplary Seattle Sewer Scope Inspection to determine the condition of the property’s sewer line and see if the system is properly functioning.
What is a Sewer Scope Inspection?
Sewer Scope Inspection is a video inspection of the lateral line (privately-owned pipeline) from the house connecting to the city tap, septic tank, or publicly-owned main sewer line.
What Happens During a Sewer Scope Inspection?
A typical single-family residence inspection takes approximately one hour to complete. Our professional will insert a mini video camera into the sewer line and through the cleanout. The cleanout is any area such as the basement, crawlspace, or just outside where the sewer line exits the house. Now, if there are no obstructions found, our professional will inspect from the cleanout to the city’s mainline. However, if problems are found, the location and depth of the trouble area will be easily recorded and will be marked on the ground surface.
What are the common sewer line problems found in Sewer Scope?
Common sewer line problems include root intrusion, holes, pooling, cracks, pipe separation, and leakage.
Who Should Get a Sewer Scope Inspection?
All buyers of a new home should call for a Sewer Scope Inspection. Few first time home buyers consider this service but this inspection is very important especially if you are buying an older home, especially those built from over 20 years ago.
When Should I Call for a Sewer Scope Inspection?
The best time to find out if a sewer line is faulty is before you buy the property, not after. Numerous sewer line problems can turn into expensive and seriously troublesome issues.
Why Should I Call for a Sewer Scope Inspection?
A Sewer Scope Inspection is critical in identifying and confirming problems in the sewer line. Gone are the days where outdated and heavy exploratory equipment is being used to reveal any issues on the pipes. Our Seattle Sewer Scope Inspection provides an accurate and non-invasive view of the insides. This inspection is essential, cost-effective, and especially helpful at isolating areas of concern.
