The purpose of a sewer scope inspection is to determine the condition of the property's sewer line and to determine if the system is functioning as designed.
Sewer scope inspections have become a standard component of the pre-purchase inspection period for homes in Minneapolis and surrounding areas. Our technician will insert a mini video camera into the sewer line through the sewer clean out. The clean out may be located in the basement, crawlspace or outside where the sewer line exits the home. If no obstructions are encountered, we will inspect from the clean out to the city main. If problems with the line are found, we are able to accurately pinpoint the location and depth of the trouble area. Common sewer line problems are root intrusion, holes, pooling, cracks, and pipe separation. A functioning sewer line may have problems that do not currently affect the performance of the line. However, these problems may cause a future sewer backup leading to an unexpected emergency line repair or replacement.
You will receive a written report to detailing the condition of the main line and a copy of the video.
