Most homeowners do not give much thought to their sewer line. It is underground and as they say, “out of sight, out of mind.” But not giving your sewer line proper attention can leave you with costly and unsightly repairs.
How can you make sure that everything is good when it comes to your sewer line? The answer is to have a sewer scope inspection performed. A sewer scope inspection is where an inspector comes out and puts the sewer scope down your sewer line. The scope allows the inspector to see if there are any clogs or damage to your sewer line. Once it is complete, they will provide you with a detailed analysis of any existing problems spotted or potential problems that need attention.
The Many Benefits of Sewer Scoping
There are many benefits to getting a sewer scope done. A homeowner should consider getting a sewer scope done at least once a year.
Reasons You Should Get a Sewer Scope Inspection Include:
1. Finding Issues
When a sewer scope inspection is done, the entire sewer line is inspected. Sewer lines can develop hairline cracks that can become a big problem. Roots can quickly grow into your sewer line and cause damage. Older sewer lines can degrade and fail. If there are any cracks, roots, or damage to your sewer line, a septic scope inspection will find it.
2. No Harm to your Landscape
In the past, to find out anything about your septic tank, your sewer line would need to be dug up. This would cause a large mess for you to deal with. This video inspection goes into the line and does not disturb anything.
3. Visual Documentation
If you are thinking about selling your property, it is a good idea to keep records of when you had your sewer inspected and repaired. This video will allow you to show potential homebuyers the repairs were done and that the septic system is in good working order.
4. Saving Money
You can save money by getting a sewer scope inspection. Inspectors will typically charge a flat rate for the service so that you will save money from that. You will also save money by getting a septic tank looked at to address any problems before they become bigger ones. Left untreated, clogs in your sewer line can back up in your home and cause significant repair issues.
