Why get a septic inspection?

If you own a home or are looking to buy a home do you know

  • Where the tank is and if its accessible?
  • We often get calls from people who have had their home less than a year and they say “oh the seller said the tank is right here.” When we start locating, the tank is not there.
  • When you are having a problem is a bad time to realize you don’t know where it is, or that its under a patio, shed, etc that has to be removed first.
  • If you haven’t seen it with your own eyes, assume you don’t know where it is.
  • If the system is working properly?
  • There may not be signs of an issue until its too late. Repairs can range from a couple hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.
  • If you’re looking to buy a house, know what you are getting.
  • Even if it is working now, there could the beginnings of an issue. Catching and fixing some issues early can save money in the long run.
    • For example, stopping root intrusion is relatively inexpensive. But if the root intrusion is allowed to continue, the roots can damage the tank or the lines, and then they may need replaced.
  • Has the system been properly used and maintained?Has it been pumped? Is it full of fats, oils, and greases? Are there non-biodegradable items?
