The Basics of Sewer Scoping

Home / The Basics of Sewer Scoping

Investing in a professional sewer camera inspection is one of the most efficient ways to determine the condition of your pipes, diagnose and address problems before they worsen, and ensure that your pipes are in good working condition. In most cases, a sewer inspection is done before a pipe repair or replacement, but regularly scheduling an inspection as part of your sewer maintenance routine can be helpful.

If you want to learn more about this process, experts at Federal EC share the basics regarding when, how, and why we perform a pipe inspection in Atlanta, GA.

Pipe Scoping Basics

Sewer scoping refers to a process where a pipe camera inspection specialist uses a high-definition camera to check the inside of a pipe. We make sure to clean the inside of the pipes so the footage can be as accurate as possible. As the camera moves further down the pipeline, it captures images of what’s happening inside your pipes and sends us signals to indicate the location of the problem.

Benefits of a Sewer Line Inspection

It’s not just old properties that can benefit from sewer scoping. In fact, prospective real estate buyers and sellers are encouraged to have their pipe systems inspected prior to the closing a deal to help ensure there are no hidden problems and other existing or potential issues that can bring down the value of the property.

What Sewer Scoping Can Detect

Symptoms of a sewer problem are sure to make themselves known, but until a complete drain inspection is carried out, the real cause of the issue will not be discovered and the appropriate fixes can’t be made. Getting your sewers scoped can help detect issues such as root intrusions and corrosion. The process can also let you know what type of pipe you have running underneath your property, as well as whether the fittings and connections are properly in place.
