In California, it’s required that all new structures and homes placed on the market undergo a camera inspection of their piping. While this is an added cost to homeowners and sellers, ultimately the payoff more than justifies the expense.
What is a camera inspection for pipelines?
A camera inspection is a relatively simple - but highly specialized – procedure. To begin, we use your drain lines as an access point and insert a small camera into the pipes. Next, one of our pipeline experts feeds the camera through the pipe, monitoring what it records on a screen above ground. This allows us to gain a thorough understanding of the condition of your pipes, and provides us with verifiable confirmation of their status for distribution to realtors, home buyers, and any other interested parties.
What are the benefits of having an inspection done?
Aside from complying with regulations, there are major benefits to having camera pipe inspection performed. For one, the initial cost is likely to save you a lot of money over time. It’s always less expensive to prevent a problem than to fix it, so a preliminary inspection could keep that little hole or weakened pipe from becoming a larger issue later. Moreover, if the pipes are found to be in pristine condition you can use that as a selling point for potential buyers, or rest easy knowing that you’re making a sound investment.
What will it cost me?
While there are many factors that impact costs, most residential inspections fall between $100 and $800. A homeowner having only a camera inspection done with no major considerations impacting the price should expect to pay between $250 and $500.
