Sewer Scoping Inspections
Sewer Scoping of the waste system has become an important and growing trend throughout the Bay Area when buying a home and for existing homeowners. Whether your home is new or old, the waste system is a critical component of the home. When the waste system breaks down or backs-up it can be a very costly repair.
With older construction, if you have clay, Orangeburg or cast-iron pipes these pipes do break down having cracks, “belly’s”, root intrusion, scaling and build-up and if not maintained will eventually clog up the waste system and can cause thousands of dollars in repairs that your insurance company may or may not cover (check your policy).
Even with new construction, PVC is the most common material however the sewer pipes leaving the home are one of the first things to be installed during construction and as the home is built, large trucks are driving over the pipes that are under the ground and can be crushed even before the home is occupied leaving the new homeowner with an unwelcome problem soon after occupancy.
HOW IS A SEWER INSPECTION PERFORMED?
A sewer inspection or also known as a sewer scoping is performed by inserting a camera through the clean-out located somewhere on the property, waste vent stack on the roof or through the toilet once removed. The camera is inserted using a small amount of flowing water to help move the camera through the pipes all the way to the main city sewer line connection. As the camera is slowly pulled back through the pipe the issues are identified that may exist.
Our sewer scope inspections include a video link and a written report with color pictures of our inspectors’ findings. This will be valuable information to share with a licensed plumber for repair before a bigger more expensive situation occurs. As homeowners, we are responsible for the sewer waste line leaving our homes down to the city connection making it our responsibility to maintain our waste system.
Whether you are buying a home or you already own one, these sewer inspections are extremely valuable and an important part of your home maintenance plan. Get a sewer inspection today.
