SEWER LINE INSPECTION

Sewer Scope Inspection Process

The inspection process is purely visual and does not involve any dismantling of any components (except for removing a clean out cover). The inspection by our certified sewer line inspector will include:

  • A visual video survey of the main side drain line (lateral) via access from a standard clean out
  • A written report of the inspector’s findings and data interpretations
  • A hyperlink to view your sewer line video inspection
  • A physical marking placed on the site of an encountered defect

Sewer scope inspections do NOT include the following

  • The removal of plumbing fixtures or components
  • Construction, alteration or repairs of any kind to your current drain line
  • Investigating permits
  • Excessively long drain lines (over 200 feet)
  • Quoting repair costs, assessment or operation of sewer ejector pumps, etc.

Plumbing contractors are the most valuable resources to homeowners looking to remediate sewer line issues and concerns.

Common issues

Some common plumbing system failures may cause sewer gases to flow back into a building:

  • Loss of the water barrier resulting in dried-out piping and plumbing fixtures. This can be due to dry weather or infrequent use of a toilet, shower, or floor drain.
  • Plumbing line and drain cracks
  • Diffusion from a damaged or leach field septic system
  • Cracks in the foundational structure
  • Poor placement of plumbing vents (close proximity to HVAC or air intakes/windows)

Dangerous issues

Sewer gases within the home are the most common issues related to underperforming or damaged sewer lines and can result in a number of health complications, including death.

  • Hydrogen sulfide exposure and poisoning. Hydrogen sulfide is a very toxic and explosive gas that impairs a number of bodily functions, especially the nervous system. High levels of exposure can lead to pulmonary edema, loss of consciousness, and even death.
  • Asphyxiation (suffocation). Sewer gases may eventually displace oxygen content within homes and gradually asphyxiate inhabitants.
  • Fire or explosion via methane and hydrogen sulfide gas build-up.
  • Sewer smell odor, often times characterized as sulfurous or like rotten eggs. A harsh, ammonia-like smell may also develop and affect the respiratory and olfactory system.
