Default Sewer line inspection cameras

For those who do sewer line inspections, what camera do you use?

I sub this service out.

I know you have multiple inspectors so it might not be a bad idea for you to do it in house. Perhaps find someone that is experienced at sewer scoping.

You could also make this person a dedicated sewer scope technician and provide your services to other home inspectors in your area.

I would check with plumbing companies and suppliers to see what they recommend for equipment also.

Thanks David, I am working with the local Sewer expert here, I was just looking for more from possibly experienced inspectors doing there own sewer inspection, I have a hired full time sewer inspector now, I am just trying to complete any outside info I can get, not much on training through NACHI on it, I turn away a couple sewer inspections a day without marketing it, Time to start earning on it, Factor #6 in STACKS, " How good you are at selling additional ancillary inspection services" is my #1 goal this year.

That really depends on your local area.

Older homes are likely to need longer.

At the Nachi facility class, we were taught 140 feet is a better length.

But I have yet to acquire my camera

Check out easycamllc.com
They have a modular system and over night ship any parts that break down so you minimize down time.

Hi Peter,

Larry Cage suggested I contact you regarding septic and sewer lines. Do you know how my company can get educated to perform these type of inspections? I currently sub them out.
Thank you, Tim

Hi Tim, All of Peter's info is in his signature in post #6. You will have better luck emailing him directly, I would think. And, my last name is with a "K".
