Pipeline Inspections An Added-Value Service for REALTORS®, Buyers and Sellers
You already know that home inspections are a regular part of the home buying process. But what about the property glitches your inspector doesn’t see, like the sewer pipes under the house? Pipeline inspections use high resolution video to show these sewer pipes.
Also, we all know that an excavation or raw sewage clean-up bill can cost a home buyer thousands of dollars out of pocket.
In conclusion, sewer pipeline inspections help buyers avoid a costly mistake. As part of the home inspection checklist, let us look over your pipes to ensure your family is protected from unknown sewer issues.

A Invaluable Service for Real Estate Clients
With Pipe Spies’ high resolution video sewer pipeline inspection, your clients receive a printed or digitized report along with a high resolution video of the inspection. This serves as documentation of the pipe’s condition.
Pipe Spies’ high-tech video cameras can “snake” through the interior of the pipeline from an access point inside or just outside the home to the point that the line connects with the city’s main. That represents the entire length of pipe that is the home owner’s responsibility.
More and more, experienced REALTORS® recommend pipeline inspections along with standard home inspections as part of the due diligence process. If you are a REALTOR®, contact us online today to request your client’s sewer pipeline inspection.
Why Do You Need a Sewer Pipe Inspection?
Most home buyers don’t always check the underground sewer pipelines. However, just like shingles on the house or the furnace in the basement, buyers are liable to maintain their property, including the sewer line to the city main.
Further, repairing a sewer pipeline can cost thousands of dollars in excavation, pavement restoration, and clean-up fees for raw sewage. Most costs aren’t covered by insurance. Isn’t it best that you know your risk before you buy?
Savvy consumers are discovering the importance of obtaining an underground pipe inspection with an independent company that utilizes high-quality equipment (not all cameras are the same). By doing so, they gain an honest evaluation of their sewer pipe work’s condition and can make informed decisions, empowering them to be in the driver’s seat if a true issue needs to be addressed.
Every General Inspection Should Include an Independent Video Pipeline Inspection
Whether the home is in an older neighborhood or a new one, there are many things that can cause sewer pipe problems. Most problems cannot be identified by a simple test of flushing the toilets and drains to determine the condition of the main sewer.
Give yourself the opportunity to save potentially thousands of dollars on sewer pipeline repairs by making sure that you include a video inspection of the pipeline as part of the home buying process.
More and more, experienced Home Inspectors recommend an independent underground sewer pipe inspection along with a standard home inspection as part of the due diligence process.

Pre-Existing Sewer Pipeline Issue?
If the home you’re buying has a reported sewer issue, call us today. We’ll use our cameras to detect the site of the problem, saving you potentially thousands of dollars.
You Don’t Want to Come Home to a Sewer Back-up
Today, the discovery of a break, blockage or misalignment in the sewer pipeline can result in a negotiation with the seller providing significant savings for the client at closing.
Or, if no underground video pipeline inspection is done, your client could receive an unpleasant visit from your city’s waste water management department delivering a notice for required sewer repair usually located in a public right-of-way or easement.
