What You Need To Know About Septic Inspections
Why is a Septic Inspection necessary?
To protect your investment from the rising costs of septic system repairs and to insure your system is in good operational condition.
Do I need to be present for the inspection?
While it is not required for you to be present, we will need access inside the home. We strongly recommend that you are present for the septic inspection because you can see first hand whether problems are present. You can also see where each part of the system is for future reference.
Is it required that the tank be pumped at the time of inspection?
A full septic pump-out is not required for a residential Real Estate septic inspection.
Our septic inspector recommends the tank to be at its normal operational levels for the completion of the inspection. If and when we recommend a maintenance pump-out, we suggest you do so after taking possession of property.
How long does it take to generate the written report?
Our septic inspector can mail, fax or email you a copy of the written report the next business day after the inspection. You can receive a verbal report on the system if you attend the inspection, or you can request a phone call on the status of the system.
What does a septic inspection report determine?
- Volume of the tank is determined by its length, width, and depth
- Structure of the tank
- Liquid levels in tank in relation to inlet line
- Amount of solid and sludge accumulation in tank
- All incoming pipes are open
- Square footage of drain-field / leech-field
- If system is working properly at time of inspection
- Noted if trees are in drain-field / leech-field area
