Sewer Scope Inspection Dallas, TX - Be Informed Inspections

Purchasing a home is a crucial investment, and a comprehensive home inspection is a vital element of the real estate process, whether you’re on the buying or selling side. However, an often overlooked but essential part of a home’s infrastructure is the sewer line, which is not typically included in standard home inspections due to its underground location. At Be Informed Inspections, we go the extra mile by offering a distinguished Dallas, Texas, Sewer Scope Inspection service. This service is designed to meticulously evaluate the condition of the property’s sewer line and ensure its optimal functionality.

What Exactly Is A Sewer Scope Inspection?

A Sewer Scope Inspection involves a detailed video examination of the lateral sewer line. This privately owned pipeline extends from the house to connect with the city tap, a septic tank, or a publicly owned main sewer line.

The Sewer Scope Inspection Process

Conducting a Sewer Scope Inspection for a standard single-family home usually takes about an hour. Our experienced technician will introduce a mini video camera into the sewer line via the cleanout access, which could be located in the basement, crawlspace, or externally where the sewer line exits the home. Our technician will inspect the connection to the city’s mainline from the cleanout point without any blockages. If any issues are detected, the problematic areas’ exact locations and depths will be accurately recorded and visibly marked on the ground surface.

Common Sewer Line Issues Identified During Inspections

Several issues can plague sewer lines, including:

  • Root Intrusion: Tree roots are attracted to the continuous water supply within sewer pipes and can penetrate even the tiniest cracks.
  • Settling: Sewer lines can sink or form low spots, known as “bellies,” if trenches are not properly supported. These are easily spotted during an inspection.
  • Ground Shifting: Over time, sewer lines may detach due to ground movement, which can occur for various reasons, such as nearby construction work or seismic activity.
  • Inferior Pipe Materials: Older homes may have sewer lines made from clay or concrete tiles, materials prone to cracking over time. These can be quickly identified during an inspection.
  • Poor Installation: Common issues such as improper joints and poorly fitted connections, indicative of substandard installation, are easily detected during an inspection.

Who Needs A Sewer Scope Inspection?

All prospective homebuyers should request a Sewer Scope Inspection, especially if they consider a property over 20 years old. This inspection is crucial for first-time buyers, who might need to be made aware of its importance.

Excellent experience!! I was referred to the company by my next door neighbor. Michael was punctual, friendly, professional, and did a thorough inspection of my home at a fair price. He also answered questions that I had. I highly recommend Be Informed Inspections. – Adam Lee White
