Sewer Scoping in Connecticut
Sewer Scoping in Connecticut
Sewer systems typically remain out of sight and out of mind, but what happens if your system has an unidentified, uncorrected problem?
A damaged or degraded sewer system can cause structural deterioration, sewage leaks, health issues, and other costly consequences.
Our sewer scoping service helps you minimize the risk of uncertainty. We inspect your system and identify uncorrected issues, so you can take steps to resolve them.
Why Do You Need a Sewer Scope Inspection?
A sewer system malfunction can disrupt your daily routine, damage your home, and sicken your family and pets. Sewer scoping can help provide solutions.
Identify Problems Before You Buy or Sell a Home
If you’re selling or buying a home, a deteriorating sewer line can sabotage your sale. Connecticut laws require that an owner disclose sewage system issues before they finalize a deal. Even if a home seller doesn’t have the sewer inspected, the buyer probably will.
Reduce Your Family’s Risk of Illnesses
When your sewer system is functioning properly, it helps your family avoid health risks. Sewage problems can expose your family and pets to harmful contaminants.
- Raw Sewage
- Mold spores
- Harmful gasses
Detect Sewer System Issues Early
Homeowners usually can’t identify sewer system issues until they’re already causing a problem. These may include:
- Flooding in a home or yard
- Sinkholes or shifting ground
- Foundation issues
- Ambient odors
- Contaminated water
- Mold Spores
- Increased pests
Sewer scope inspection helps identify the problems before they become more complicated and more costly.
