Septic Tank Inspections
We provide septic inspections and septic tank inspection letters in the event you need your system checked for damage or for the purchase of a home. We highly recommend a septic tank inspection when buying a house so you can avoid moving into a home that already has septic problems that could cost thousands of dollars to repair.
Septic Tank Inspection Services
Having a septic system malfunction can not only be a messy ordeal but it can be costly as well. A septic system is designed to last a long time and with proper care and treatment the life expectancy is roughly 20 years. However, just like any other appliance in your home without proper maintenance it can become clogged, stop working, break, or otherwise cause costly damage to the property. We recommend hiring a certified, professional septic tank specialist to service the system every 2 to 3 years.
What Will You Learn From An Inspection?
The inspector will observe and test the system and recommend any further action. Also, by testing the system, the inspector will be able to tell you what the tank is made of and about how long it will be before it must be replaced. A professional will also be able to determine the proper time to pump and clean based on the level of the ‘sludge’ layer which rests at the bottom on the tank. If this layer is more than one-third the capacity of the tank, it’s time for service.
If a septic tank has been maintained properly, it should perform for as long as the tank and pipes hold. A septic tank inspection on a current or prospective property will show whether the system has been properly maintained.
Septic Tank Inspection Letters
After the septic tank inspection is complete, you will be able to discuss what repairs need to be made. Once an agreement is reached and repairs are made we can provide a clear septic system certification letter.
