Septic System Inspections

A septic inspection is an involved process that can take up to two hours. We gather environmental documents pertaining to the property by contacting the county. Once on site, we locate the septic tank and field by using a probing technique or electronic devices. We dig to gain access to the tank in order to inspect it.

We examine for key components, such as an intact structure and inlet and outlet pipes. Next we examine the septic field through several bore holes. We evaluate the soil, stone, and pipe conditions to determine if the field is functioning properly. Once the inspection is complete, we cover up the tank and the bore holes in the ground.

After the physical inspection we provide a written report, make recommendations, and educate our clients. We try to answer all pertinent questions while on site. Recommendations are made regarding ways to correct any issues that were discovered. The final typed report includes detailed information regarding the findings, as well as pictures, and a diagram of the septic system on the property.
