What is a Septic Line Scope?
A septic line scope is performed when a video camera is attached to a septic line scope and is inserted into the septic cleanout lines. The septic or sewer cleanout is located in the crawlspace, basement or outside where the lines exit the house.
Pinpointing the location of the trouble area is quicker and easier with the septic line video. Both the home’s septic cleanout and the city main is examined and assessed for any situations that affect the line’s performance. In addition, potential emergencies are detected and averted.

Septic line video inspections are now standard procedure for single-family home real estate transactions. It takes one hour to complete the video but offers the seller peace of mind during the sales process.
The results of the septic line inspection are available to the seller once complete. If the septic line is clear and passes inspection, a final report and DVD are available for review. However, a proposal to complete the necessary repairs is submitted if problems are found in the septic line.
