Sewer Video Scope Inspections $295 – $495
We always recommend this service of the home has cast iron or clay sewer piping. All homes built prior to 1972 have cast iron sewer piping unless this has been completely upgraded. From 1972 through 1975 PVC sewer piping was introduced, though cast iron was still being used throughout this time as well.
Why video scope cast iron pipes?
Simply put, they have an age limit. They eventually rust through, crack, break, settle, or in some cases collapse. Since South Florida homes have been built on concrete slabs starting in 1949, there is simply no way of knowing the condition of these pipes by performing the home inspection.
This service is performed by a Florida licensed plumbing contractor using a high definition scope camera on a 200-foot line. The video is voice narrated and recorded for verification by the client, seller, and other contractors if necessary. A digital cost estimate for repair is also provided along with the video for budgeting purposes.
