I found myself recommending that clients purchasing homes have the sewer line inspected. After years of experience and feedback, I noticed there is a lot of value in having the sewer line inspected. Repairs are often in the thousands of dollars and replacement can be tens of thousands.
Typically, if a buyer could get a plumber to come to the home, coordinate with the realtor for access and perform a scope within the required timeline (typically 10 days from mutual acceptance) clients would pay $350-$450 for this service.
I sought out how to remedy the extra time, stress and cost of this service while maintaining the value. What happened? I flew to Colorado to become Sewer Scope Certified from InterNachi (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors), researched and purchased the most State-of-the-Art equipment and started providing added value to my clients within weeks. Now I have done hundreds of sewer inspections and can perform a sewer camera inspection during your home inspection for a discounted fee. You receive a high quality video copy sent via email link along with a written report included in your digital color photo inspection report. All delivered same day.
