A sewer scope inspection, also known as a video sewer line inspection, is a process of examining the inside of your sewer line using a specialized camera. This allows you to see any problems that may be lurking beneath the surface, such as:
- Cracks and breaks in the pipes
- Blockages caused by roots or debris
- Bellying, which is a sagging section of pipe that can lead to backups
- Offsets, which are misaligned sections of pipe that can also cause backups
What to Expect During a Sewer Scope Inspection
The inspection process is typically quick and painless. An inspector will insert the camera into a cleanout located on your property. The camera will then travel through your sewer line, sending live video back to a monitor. The inspector will be able to see any problems that exist and will provide you with a detailed report of their findings.
