You should have a sewer line inspection before you buy a house. At Home Inspections by BEL Arrow, we place a camera in your sewer pipe that runs to the sewer main.
Sewer Scope Inspections
This inspection allows us to move the camera through the pipe to see if tree roots have broken through the pipes or if damaged or cracked sections are evident. Sometimes an inspection will reveal a collapsed portion of conduit.
Our test will provide conclusive evidence of any trouble. A damaged sewer line can cost more than $20,000 to excavate. This service is recommended for older homes, especially if the property has many trees
