Sewer Scopes

Having to replace a sewer line, or main lateral drain pipe from a house can cost $15,000 or in some cases much more.  Before the real estate transaction is completed, it is best to have the sewer line inspected by a Milwaukie, Oregon sewer scope inspector. During the inspection we will check for clogs/debris in the pipe, cracks or damage, root intrusions, standing water, low points or bellies. 

All of our sewer inspections are done using the Ridgid Seesnake camera, providing clear, high quality imaging of the inside of the main lateral drain line from the house.
