Sewer Scope Services from Edelman

During a sewer scope, an Edelman Inc. field technician will identify:

A. The type of existing pipe. (Terra cotta clay, cast iron, ABS, Orangeburg, SDR 35 or schedule 40 sewer line material.)

B. Interior or exterior clean-out access points. (Cleanouts often get covered up behind drywall or under outside landscaping materials.)

C. That the sewer line is in good working condition. (Meaning no current blockages or collapsed pipe obstructing flow of sewage)

D. Whether a line needs routine maintenance or if it needs excavation and replacement.

How long does the Sewer Scope take?

Usually about an hour. The length of the inspection depends on the sewer pipe access (crawl spaces, basement, roof vents, tight spots toilet pulls) length and configuration, trolls in the line and the number of issues needing to be identified and located. Clean-out caps may need to be chiseled and replaced.

Do I need to be present when the sewer clean is completed?

Although it is preferred that someone be at the property at the time of the inspection, it is not necessary. Access can be communicated with our scheduling team to the field technician. (Garage code, gate code, etc.)

Common Causes of Clogs

  • Tree Roots- Roots are a consistent issue when a sewer and drain line is clogged or busted.
  • Human Induced Obstruction- Intentional or unintentional items have been put down the drain or garbage disposal.
  • Other Debris- Clay, dirt, rocks, mud or yard debris can sometimes get into a sewer or drain line.
  • Sagging Sewer Line- Often unnoticed, a sagging sewer line will slow the flow and possibly clog the line.
