If you’re buying a house, it’s wise to have a sewer inspection completed at the same time as the home inspection.

What Is a Sewer Scope?


A sewer scope is a video inspection of the main drain/sewer line leading from the house to where it connects to the city sewer or septic tank. Scoping can reveal blockages, damage to the pipe system, root intrusion, and other problems, which are vital for homeowners and home buyers to be aware of.

Sewer scoping is strongly recommended for older homes, which may have sewer lines of poorer quality and with significant issues. And while newer homes have a much lower potential for sewer problems, they’re not immune to problems.  Sewer scoping is an ancillary service, not included in a General Home Inspection, with an additional fee.
