What is a sewer camera inspection?

Sewer pipes are installed under the foundation and basement floor of the building.  The main waste pipe (sewer lateral) runs from the home to the city sewer connection.  Repairs to a damaged sewer pipe can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $25,000.  A sewer camera inspection is the only way to determine if repairs are necessary.


To inspect the pipes and find possible problems, a special sewer video camera head connected to a flexible cable is inserted into the main sewer pipe cleanout, or in some cases, the vent stack and snaked through the pipe. Then the technician watches on a monitor at ground level to inspect and evaulate the waste pipe. 


The video of the interior of the pipe is recorded.  You’ll receive not only a written report, but a link to view the video online.  We'll arrange for the sewer lateral inspection to be completed at the same time as your home inspection.




Here's a sample of a video inspection of the main sewer pipe.
