In addition to a home inspection, you may want to consider having the sewer line scoped to rule out any existing problems with the sewer line. Our sewer scope camera will take a high quality, digital video and will include a summary of findings from our sewer scope specialist. Sewer line repairs are among the most expensive home repairs and can cost thousands of dollars if replacement is needed. Having the line checked is a fraction of this cost and can ease your mind to know that one of the key areas of a home that can’t be viewed in a standard home inspection is being checked.
Sewer Scopes in Colorado Springs
- Home is older – As the home ages the pipes have had more time to break down, develop root intrusion, and collect blockages.
- Large trees – The more foliage and the larger the trees that are located on the property, the more likely roots have grown into the sewer line.
- Well maintained? – If the home was well maintained it is an indicator that items which shouldn’t have been placed in the drain line were kept out (grease, non-biodegradable items, etc).
