What is a Sewer Scope Inspection and Why Do I Need One?

A sewer scope is a type of inspection that involves inserting a specialized camera into your home's sewer line to assess its condition and identify any potential problems. The camera is attached to a flexible cable and is able to capture high-resolution images and videos of the inside of the sewer line, allowing you and a professional inspector to see any blockages, cracks, corrosion, or other issues that could lead to costly repairs or maintenance.


You may need a sewer scope inspection if you are buying a new home or experiencing repeated sewer backups or slow shower or sink drains in your current home. A sewer scope inspection can help identify problems that may not be visible from the surface, such as tree roots growing into the sewer line or a collapsed pipe, before they become more serious and expensive to repair. It can also give you peace of mind knowing the overall condition of your sewer line and help you plan for any necessary maintenance or repairs.

1. Home purchase:

If you are buying a new home, a sewer scope inspection can help identify any potential issues with the sewer line before you commit to buying the property. A sewer scope may also be recommended at time of booking if your home was built before 1975. This can prevent unexpected repair costs and help you negotiate a fair price for the home.

2. Repeated sewer backups or slow drains:

If you are experiencing repeated sewer backups or slow drains in your home, it may be an indication of a more serious problem with your sewer line. A sewer scope inspection can help identify the cause of the issue and allow you to address it before it becomes more serious and expensive to repair.

3. Home renovation:

If you are planning a home renovation project that involves the plumbing system, a sewer scope inspection can help you identify any potential issues with the sewer line that may need to be addressed before the project begins.
