There are many tell-tale signs that you should get a sewer camera inspection before making an offer on a house. Below is a list of some of the most common signs that something may be wrong with the sewer system or that it’s at risk of being damaged.

  • Water backing up inside the house or crawlspace is an indication there is damage to the sewer line or a significant clog within the line itself.
  • Large trees in the yard and their growing root system are one of the most common causes of sewer pipe damage. Roots can cause damage by constricting the pipe, breaking it, clogging it, or causing leaks.
  • Houses built before 1984 may have clay sewer pipes that can be easily crushed or damaged. These need to be inspected to ensure they are in good condition.
  • Shifting or movement of the ground around the home could indicate a problem with the sewer pipe. If you notice soil levels sinking or piling higher around your driveway or walkways, this could signify the ground around your home is moving.
  • Lush patches of grass is a common sign of a septic or sewer leak as sewer contents are a natural fertilizer that encourages plant growth. If a suspicious area of your lawn is greener than the rest, you have reason to believe there may be a problem.

If you don’t see any of the above issues in your potential new home, we still recommend having a sewer line scope inspection performed. Minor issues with the sewer line may have no or very few symptoms, but can still result in expensive repairs.

Our Sewer Scope Inspection Process

A trained, professional inspector will run a specialized, flexible borescope camera, through the sewer line in order to examine the line and any other underground pipes for flaws, imperfections, or serious problems. Once completed, the inspector will review the findings with you as well as issue a complete report of the condition of the sewer line that is given to both you and the home seller. The entire process usually takes no more than one hour.


When scheduling a buyer or seller home inspection or a new home construction inspection, just ask about adding a sewer scope to the order. We also offer other specialty inspections for all your needs:
