Here, in Studio City, it is crucial that property buyers scope all the way to the city sewer, which is called the city saddle connection, which every property owner is responsible for. This overlooked can be a costly price to pay, we have seen new property owners pay as much as $25,000.00 to open the city street and replace the line to the property.Performing a sewer camera inspection requires an open access either from a sewer clean out, which is typically located in the front or back yard, whichever the direction of the main sewer is running.
When paying for sewer camera inspection, make sure you have the plumber perform a location of the sewer line, this educates you in understanding how and where it is running underground. Every good quality camera has a transmitter at the end of it and a locator device will track above ground where that camera head is at all times. It will provide the depth of the line as well.
We strongly believe here at the twinplumbers to have a sewer line scoped anytime you have a sewer issue, this is always a good way to know the condition of the line whether your buying, selling or living in the dwelling. Anytime a plumber does any under ground sewer work, its always a good idea for him to run a sewer camera for you to see the quality of work after he has competed the project.
