What is a sewer lateral inspection?
There are a number of thoughts, emotions, and words that run through your mind when you notice water backing up through the drain when you’re in the middle of a shower. First, there’s the inconvenience of having to cut your shower short, followed by how you’re going to address the problem.
Not having to deal with wastewater is one of the joys of indoor plumbing after all. And if your shower or bathtub, kitchen, laundry room, or any other drain in your home stops has a blockage somewhere along the line, it could mean you may not be able to run the water until the clog is removed.
If the clog is in the fixture drain, that’s a relatively easy fix. But if your issues are further down the line, it pays to know exactly what you’re dealing with. With a sewer scope inspection in Vancouver, you can look through the sewer pipe from the house to the sewer system or septic tank in older homes.
What is a Sewer Scope?
Also known as a pipeline video inspection system or a sewer lateral inspection, a sewer scope allows Simpson Plumbing to quickly take a look at your sewer lines. This is an easy way to find out if you’re looking at an easy fix or something that could potentially cost you thousands of dollars.
The camera can show if you have cracks, damage caused by large tree roots, big clogs, and if you need other sewer line repairs. Our sewer scope inspection in the Vancouver WA area can also discover if you have a leak along the home sewer line. Notice large, lush patches of grass in the summer? You could have damaged sewer lines that need repair.
A sewer scope is one more way for Simpson Plumbing to offer expanded services to our clients. With our Sewer Video Inspections service, Simpson Plumbing can help home inspectors, realtors, property managers, and others tasked with oversight of a property’s maintenance needs.
Our sewer scope gives potential homeowners peace of mind during a home inspection to ensure there are no major issues with the sewer drain lines. There are always going to be a few things during a home inspection, but having to dig up the backyard to fix a sewer line could be a dealbreaker.
