WHAT IS IT?:
A technician sends a digital camera down the line from the home’s clean-out to identify any blockage or other issues in the sewer line. The technician will be looking for cracks or dips in the sewer pipe, clogging of the line by tree roots or flushed debris and other situations that may indicate the potential for sewer backups.
WHY SHOULD I ORDER THIS TEST?:
The sewer line is the financial responsibility of the homeowner. Problems that cannot be solved by a regular sewer cleaning can be very expensive.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A SEWER SURVEY?:
- Ample access to an interior or exterior cleanout at the home must be available. A show-up fee will be assessed if scan is cancelled at time of inspection for lack of access.
- A written report detailing the findings of the technician will be provided. Occasionally, a video of the scan, narrated by the plumber’s findings, may accompany the written report.
