An offset is a difference in height between to adjoining sections of pipe. Offsets are fairly common in sectioned pipe made of concrete or vitrified clay pipe.
The sewer scope inspection camera may reveal an offset exposing the underlying pipe bed or presenting a significant barrier to the flow of sewage (a serious condition requiring repair), but often the inspection camera reveals an offset that doesn’t require repair. Your Sewercam sewer scope technician will be able to determine the offset’s effect on the side sewer’s function.
sewer scope inspection camera reveals an offset in the sewer line—in this case, the pipe has shifted so severely that the sewage can flow beneath the pipe, compromising the function of the sewer pipe and eroding the pipe’s bedding, causing further shifting over time
