Sewer Scope inspections

Why Get a Sewer Line Inspection

In the event that you buy a property without getting a sewer scope, you could be putting yourself in a situation where you will have to pay thousands of dollars to fix the problem. It is recommended to ALWAYS get a sewer scope prior to buying A home. Don’t let yourself skip this step, especially if it is an older home.

What to Expect

A sewer scope is a home service which provides a detailed report of the condition of a property’s sewer line. A sewer scope operator will use a camera to view the inside of the sewer line to determine if there are cracks, bellying, damages, clogs, debris, or roots growing into the line. The technician will typically access the sewer line from an interior access point but will sometimes use a sewer vent pipe located on the roof. The sewer scope report consists of video documentation as well as written notes about any of the damages found.

Regarding Septic systems

Many of the homes that Brink Home Inspections inspect have septic systems and are not connected to the municipal sewer systems. In most counties in Colorado it is the owners responsibility to have the home septic system certified prior to selling the home. The systems are certified by a technician or plumber that is registered in the county. Pumping of the septic system may or may not be required. What these individuals typically do not include in their inspection is the sewer line from the home to the tanks. Similar to city sewer lines, the cost to scope and or clean is minimal. The cost to dig up and replace can be very expensive. For this reason, we recommend having these lines inspected by one of our technicians.
