A sewer scope inspection is a form of plumbing inspection that involves the use of specialized equipment to inspect the sewer lines and assess their condition. This type of inspection is typically carried out by a trained professional who uses a video camera to visually inspect the inside of the sewer lines. The camera is designed to be flexible and can navigate through bends and turns in the pipes to provide a comprehensive view of the entire system.
Sewer scope inspections are important for several reasons. First and foremost, they can help identify issues with the sewer lines before they become major problems. By catching these issues early, homeowners can avoid costly repairs and replacements down the road. In addition, sewer scope inspections can be useful for detecting blockages, leaks, root intrusions, and other types of damage that can affect the performance of the sewer system.
If your sewer keeps backing up, there are several steps that you can take to address the issue. The first step is to identify the underlying cause of the backup. This can be done by inspecting the pipes and plumbing system, either on your own or with the assistance of a professional plumber. Common causes of sewer backups include clogs caused by hair, grease, or other materials, tree roots invading the pipes, damaged or corroded pipes, or a collapsed sewer line.
Once the cause of the backup has been identified, you can take steps to address the issue. If the backup is due to a clog, you can try using a plunger or a drain cleaning product to clear the blockage. If this doesn’t work, you may need to call in a plumber to use specialized tools to clear the clog.
The responsibility for sewage backup typically lies with the property owner. This is because the main sewer line that leads out from the property and connects to the local sewer system is typically the responsibility of the property owner. Any blockages or damage to this line can cause sewage backup in the property, and it’s the owner’s responsibility to address the issue and ensure that the line is cleared or repaired.
There are situations where the responsibility may lie with the local government or utility company. If the blockage or damage occurs in the main sewer line that is owned by the local government or utility company, then they may be responsible for addressing the issue and clearing the blockage.
