Sewer Scope Inspection Services

The drain line that goes from the home to the city sewer main or septic tank should be free of defects such as roots, offsets, damaged piping, and Orangeburg pipe.

Knowing about the existence of Orangeburg pipe on a property is crucial for buyers, sellers, or people who want to avoid having sewage back up into their home due to a blockage.

Adept Home Inspections has specific training in identifying the existence of Orangeburg pipe and other defects from the inside. All Orangeburg pipe is defective and should be replaced.

We can inspect your sewer lines with a sewer camera that's attached to a spool of synthetic push line. It's called a sewer scope.

Services include providing screenshots from the sewer line inspection video.

As part of the service we'll record the inspection and make a Youtube video for you to review. Afterwards, we'll write up a summary of our findings so that you won't have to watch the video if you don't have the time.

Call today to schedule a sewer camera inspection: (970) 749-3478.
