This is the most comprehensive septic inspection available!
A septic system receives, treats and disposes of unwanted wastewater and solids from a building’s plumbing system. Solids are partially broken down into sludge within a septic tank and are separated from effluent (water) and scum (fat, oil and grease). Effluent regularly exits the tank into a drain field where it is naturally filtered by bacteria and reentered into the groundwater. Scum and sludge must be pumped periodically and should never enter the drain field.
Your Septic Inspection will include:
- File Search: We will reach out to your local Health Department and obtain any records available from your septic system installation.
- Homeowner/Occupant Interview: We will attempt to gather information from the current occupant regarding household water usage.
- Physical Inspection: Locate tank, determine tank composition, determine water level, check flow from house, probe tank for cracks, and locate absorption area.
- Final Report: Comprehensive documentation of observations and findings.
