When you are selling or buying a home most times a Septic Inspection is required to check the functions of the system.
Our septic inspections include locating the septic tank and all the components. We will open both ends of the septic tank, and we will measure the solids level of the septic tank & pump the tank. We will also determine if the tank is in satisfactory condition to make sure there are no cracks or leaks. We open the distribution box to make sure everything is functioning as it should be. If we can't determine that we may use a camera to evaluate further.
Essential Parts of a Septic Inspection Locating the Tank: if you’re not sure where exactly your septic tank is located, this will understandably be the first step of the process. The inspector will need to access the tank and all of its components, including the drain field. If you know where your tank is, you can potentially save a significant amount of time and make the process go much more smoothly. If you weren’t told when you bought your home, the county records office will likely be able to help, or your septic company will follow the pipes from your home.
Evaluating Components: The septic inspector will also check out the various parts of a septic system, from effluent filters to the drain field, to see if any repairs or maintenance is necessary. If they notice leaks, clogs, or other issues, they may recommend fixes like replacing broken pipes or cleaning off filters periodically.
We do troubleshoot inspections as well if you are having issues with backups, slow moving lines, water standing in the yard, tree roots, flooding, someone drove over the system, etc....
