As part of Sound Structure’s goal to offer the most detailed, informative, and thorough inspections available, its building inspectors offer a Video Sewer Scope Inspection service (as part of a home inspection or as an independent service) to ensure your plumbing and sewage systems are operating properly.

During a Video Sewer Scope inspection, a Rigid SeaSnake camera system reaches into your sewer line, traveling to the city main line to check for blockages, leaks, or pits, which can evolve into holes in the line. The sewer scope service includes a digital color recording of the entire process, as well as a written report with photographic stills, which provide a comprehensive idea of the sewer scope’s findings and elements that may need to be repaired. This information can then be used as a resource and shared with your plumber if repairs are necessary.

Sound Structure generally recommends video scopes for houses built before the 1990s, but even newer homes or brand-new construction can have flaws in the sewer line that can cost thousands of dollars to repair. It is imperative that these repairs are made before sewage backs up out of drains and destroys your home and possessions.

Your home is one of the largest single investments you will make in your lifetime. Protect its value and minimize unexpected expenses with a sewer scope inspection from Sound Structure Home Inspections.
