Heartland performs sewer scopes only – not additional work that may be needed as a result of a scope. That keeps us unbiased and independent. More invasive, exhaustive testing is available from some plumbing contractors. These inspections are lengthy and may include pressure testing underground plumbing, verifying sizing and adequacy of equipment, and providing estimates of life remaining. A plumbing contractor may also provide you with estimates of repair, if required. In the event we cannot access the drain line, you will not be charged for our drain line inspection. In some cases old clean outs cannot be removed without causing damage. In some older homes no clean outs are present which in itself is a costly repair. We do not install clean outs or modify the plumbing in any way.
Scheduling a sewer scope inspection
We have a dedicated inspector who performs this service, so it may not be possible to schedule it simultaneously with a home inspection. Schedule online with your original home inspection order or call us at 612-961-3306 or reply to your home inspection confirmation email with a note that you want to add a sewer line inspection.
Heartland promises to provide outstanding customer service, thorough home inspections and professional reports so you have all the information you need to make a confident decision whether you’re buying, selling or maintaining your home. Our customer reviews are proof that we consistently deliver satisfaction!
