Video Inspections will Identify Problems in Underground Sewer Lines
You don’t want to find out about sewer problems after escrow closes. At that point, it is too late to ask for the seller to repair any problems. This is why obtaining our services can be critical for you the homebuyer. The underground sewer lines are your responsibility from the back of your property, until it hits the city transition connection. City transition connections are the point to where you are no longer responsible for the sewer line. The city connection begins about 10 feet into the street. In other words, you are also responsible for your portion of the sewer that runs under the city street. Also know that if repairs are needed at this portion of the sewer, you are responsible for the repair costs to the street as well. Street repairs can get very expensive at that point.
This does not apply if you are on a septic tank system. However, getting to the septic tank for repairs is no small feat either. Plumbers will probably have to excavate a large portion of your vegetation just to get to the septic tank. A mainline stoppage can also be the issue. Stoppages can become a serious issue for homeowners. Major costs can be incurred due to damage to the structure and items located within the building. This condition can also create a health hazard.
A video inspection will look for items such as root intrusions, pipe separation, shifting pipe, and belly sags. The ground is constantly shifting in California.

The point being, you will be liable for all costs if you do not perform a simple video inspection. .
