What Is a Sewer Inspection?

Sewer inspections are an essential aspect of proactive maintenance for your property. It is a process in which we will inspect your sewer system for potential problems.

Even if you're not currently experiencing any plumbing issues, routine inspections can uncover hidden problems that, if left untreated, can lead to costly repairs and disruptions down the line.

During a pipe camera inspection, a specialist will enter the pipes from above ground to inspect the condition of the pipes below ground. They will be able to tell whether there are any problems with the pipes and where those issues are located. This can help you determine what repairs are needed and how extensive the repairs will be.

When To Schedule a Sewer Inspection

There are many different reasons for scheduling a sewer inspection. The most obvious reason is that you suspect that something might be wrong with your sewer system. This could be due to a sewage leak, low water flow in your system, or any other sign that something is wrong.

Another common reason to schedule a sewer inspection is before you plan on doing any construction. If you are planning to dig in the area surrounding your sewer pipes, it is a good idea to hire a sewer inspection service beforehand. They will be able to find out where your sewer pipes are and if there is any chance they could be damaged during construction.

Here are some other situations that may indicate a sewer inspection if needed:

  • Your toilets overflow or take a long time and a couple of flushes to empty
  • An awful smell of sewage fills the air
  • You have multiple slow draining fixtures in your home
  • You know some work has already been done to your sewer
  • If you are buying or selling a home

What Is a Sewer Scope?

A sewer scope is a camera inspection of a homeowner’s sewer system. They are used to check for problems in the homeowner’s sewer lines, such as clogs and leaks. A sewer scope is usually done by inserting a camera into a sewer line.

The camera sends images back to the inspectors, who look for signs of damage, such as cracks or other problems. The inspectors will also look for signs of tree roots growing into the sewer lines.

These can cause blockages and damage to the pipes. A sewer scope inspection takes approximately one hour

Why Are Sewer Scopes Important?

Sewer scopes are important because they allow maintenance workers to find and fix problems in the sewer line. Broken pipes or blockages can lead to sewage overflowing into the home.

How Long Does a Sewer Scope Take?

A sewer scope takes around one hour. Following your sewer scope, we will provide the results including pictures and videos of the damage and problems found in the pipes.

Should I Get A Sewer Scope Inspection?

You should get a sewer scope inspection if you live in a city with a sewer system and think there is a problem. This can signify tree roots growing into the pipes or leaks into the ground. You should also get a sewer scope inspection if you notice sewage or contaminated water in the streets.

This may be an indication that there is a blockage in the system that needs to be fixed.

What Is Looked For:

  • Serious clogs or blockages in the sewer line
  • Cracks, damage, or imperfections in the line
  • The type of material used for the line (clay, concrete, plastic, metal, etc.)
  • Roots growing through the line
  • Separation or failure of the line
  • Potential damage or issues with the septic tank (if present)

The Sewer Inspection Process with Pro Sewer Repair

The first thing we complete is a sewer video inspection, because we want you to fully understand the issues at hand. Many problems can arise - roots can grow into joints, and the sewer's weak spots can worsen over time.

An accumulation of solid waste materials can be too much for the pipes to manage effectively. Other problems include collapsed lines due to large boulders or landscaping above ground. Holes and cracks can develop naturally and worsen due to age and deteriorate over time. A thorough sewer video inspection will pinpoint the problem and its location.

Most leaks do not just show up as a spouting fountain of water. They linger for days, weeks, or even months before they become apparent.

At the first symptom of a possible sewer problem, contact us! We can find and fix the problem before it causes extensive damage to your property. Do NOT ignore these symptoms. Taking care of the problem early will save you time, money, and headaches.
