Video inspections play an important part for installations of new sewer lines, water lines and conduit lines and are required by some city ordinances.

For real estate agents, sewer video inspection play an important part in many cities since they are starting to ask for the sewer lateral condition. Not all cities require this, however as a potential buyer of a property it is strongly recommended to have the sewer lateral video and inspection completed by a license contractor.

A video inspection would not only check the condition of the pipe, but also identify the type of pipe as well as many other possible issues that can occur like shifting of the ground, damage due to home renovation and possible hazards due to earthquakes.

When is a Video Inspection needed?

  • When adding a bathroom to a remodel, video inspection would help you understand if the current pipes can handle the increased needs.
