The Interior Examination of Sewer Lines in Lateral Inspection

Sewer Lateral Inspection is a crucial process involving the internal scrutiny of sewer lines from the access point to the city connection, typically located in the front or side yard. Occasionally, access points may include the roof, a pulled toilet, or the crawl space. Contrary to common misconceptions, the primary goal isn't solely reaching the city connection but rather assessing the interior surface and connections of the sewer line.

Sewer Line Inspections as the Silent Property Protector

The technical term is 'Sewer Lateral Inspection.' This is the process of using a camera to internally inspect the line from the sewer access point to the city connection. This is commonly done through an access point at the front or side yard. Occasionally this may involve accessing from the roof, a pulled toilet, or, the crawl space.

The real purpose of this inspection is to determine the condition of the interior surface and connections of the sewer line. The purpose 'IS NOT' to reach the city connection, though that is the preferred outcome. Roots, shifting, or damaged pipes can all be seen through a sewer camera and this is often some of the best insurance when buying a home.

Any property inspection should involve a sewer line inspection with a video that you can review later and send to contractors to get bids if needed. We do not do repairs ourselves so our opinion is unbiased.
