Heartland Inspections Sewer Scope

Sewer Scope: What Is It?

Heartland performs sewer scopes, no clean out or repairs. We deliver unbiased and independent information and are able to perform about 95% of the scopes our customers order.

When we can’t perform the scope because of access can’t be gained without using excessive force or discover the access cap is hidden from view, we leave the other 5% – remove a toilet or go up on the roof to gain access – up to expert pros. Sewer line specialists and plumbing contractors do it efficiently and with minimal issues because it’s what they do every day. They also provide repair estimates.

If we can’t complete the scope, you won’t be charged. Not even a trip fee like other companies! That allows you to put your money towards a sewer line specialist or licensed plumber who has the skills required to perform the scope using alternative methods to access the main line.


$195.00 with or without an inspection.


With an inspection: Easily add a sewer scope to your home inspection when you schedule online. (If our technician is already booked at your inspection time, he’ll perform your scope the same day at a different time. We know how home important timing is in real estate.)

Without an inspection:  Call us at (612) 961-3306 to get on the calendar, usually within 1 or 2 days. Our office is open 7 days a week.


What is not included:

  • Inspection of other drain systems inside or under home.
  • Remove toilet or climb up on roof to access drain; or use of excessive force to remove line cap. In rare instances where we can’t do the scope, we’ll refer you to a qualified, dependable sewer pro who’s able to do it with expert care and quick turnaround.
  • Remove flooring such as carpeting or move furniture or an appliance such as a water heater to access drain.
