The main reason to consider a sewer scope inspection is when you purchase a home you are now responsible for the sewer system that the previous owners may or may NOT have been properly maintaining. In the transaction of Real Estate, a typical home inspection does not include a sewer camera inspection. Because a sewer repair or replacement can range from $3500 to tens of thousands of dollars, paying around $200+ for the peace of mind of knowing the condition of the sewer is important.
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.
