A sewer scope is a video inspection of the private sewer lateral line leading from the house and connecting to the city or HOA tap, or septic tank.*
The sewer drains are one of the most important and overlooked components of the home. Sewer drain repairs are also among the most expensive repairs for homeowners. Blockage, broken pipes, and sewage leakage may create conditions that lead to structural damage, and even health problems for the occupants. Problems may occur in new and old homes alike.
*Branch drains leading to the main drain below the home are not inspected. The Sewer Scope is limited to the mainline below the home and the lateral line leading to the City tap, HOA tap or septic tank.
