Hi there, Brad Harwell here, and today I want to talk about an important step in any home purchase that often goes overlooked: Sewer Scopes.
You might be wondering, what exactly is a sewer scope? Essentially, it’s a camera that’s inserted into a home’s sewer line to inspect for blockages, offsets, sagging lines, damage, roots, and foreign objects, or other issues. This might not sound like the most glamorous aspect of home buying, but trust me, it’s crucial to ensure you’re making a wise investment.
Here are just a few reasons why sewer scopes should be a part of any home purchase:
Health and Safety concerns: Sewage and sewer gas backing into the home are health hazards and can cause you and your family members to become ill. A broken line in the yard resulting in sewage-saturated ground soil could result in small children and pets becoming ill.
Avoid unexpected repairs: If a sewer line is damaged or blocked, it can cause serious problems down the line (no pun intended). By inspecting the line before you buy, you can catch any issues early on and avoid costly repairs later.
Negotiate repairs: If the sewer scope does reveal issues, you can use this information to negotiate repairs with the seller before closing. This can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
Peace of mind: Knowing that your line is in good condition can give you peace of mind as a homeowner. You don’t want to be dealing with sewer backups or other issues shortly after moving into your new home! All sewer scopes that we perform with a home inspection come with a 1-year sewer guard warranty from RWS that will provide up to $4,000.00 in repair coverage to make sure you can rest easy and know you’re informed and protected on your sewer line.
In conclusion, sewer scopes are an essential step in any home purchase. They can help you avoid unexpected repairs, negotiate repairs with the seller, and provide peace of mind as a homeowner. Don’t overlook this crucial step – call us today to schedule your sewer scope inspection!
