We recommend a sewer scope on every home over 25 years old.
The Puget Sound area offers many historical homes that are beautiful and unique. That same history and uniqueness, however, may produce some uncertainties concerning the current state of the sewer lines. A Sewer Scope provided by our team of dedicated inspectors can help address those concerns.
Whether owning a new or an older home, all homeowners are responsible for the sewer lines that run from their house to the street. Sewer line repairs can add up to thousands of dollars, and buyers may consider requesting these be addressed by the seller prior to the purchase of the home they are considering. As a result, knowing the current condition of the sewer line may be a helpful tool when negotiating the purchase of your home. Work with your realtor to navigate these potential options.
During a Sewer Scope, our inspectors use a fiber optic camera to enter the sewer line, check the condition of the pipes, and identify any deficiencies in the line. They will then create a separate written report and video of what was found. This report and video can be used to establish what repairs need to be made and may also be helpful to a licensed sewer/plumbing contractor when the time comes to locate and correct any issue.
