Everything You Need to Know About Our Septic System Inspections

Reasons to Request an Inspection

There are many times when you might need to have a septic system inspected:

  • You’re buying or selling a residential property.
  • You’re buying or selling a commercial property.
  • You’re buying or selling vacant land that will be developed.
  • You’re moving, expanding, or replacing your septic system due to remodeling, property development, or zoning changes.
  • You’re building or installing a new/replacement system to meet updated health or environmental codes.

Types of Septic Inspections We Do

We conduct three main types of septic system inspections:

  1. Residential Basic Inspections

If you need your septic system located, a basic, visual inspection is likely a good fit. These inspections include:

  • Estimating the size and volume of the tank
  • Estimating the size of the drain field
  • A septic system report card with the details of the inspection
  1. Residential Enhanced Inspections

If you need your system and drain field inspected with a camera, pumped, or need more detail about your system, this inspection is the right choice. These inspections include:

  • A septic system pump-out
  • A camera inspection on both the septic tank and drain field
  • A detailed measurement of tank size and volume
  • A detailed measurement of drain field size and overall functionality
  • A thorough written report of the overall state of the system and drain field
  1. Commercial Septic Inspections:

If you’re a septic or building contractor and require an initial or final inspection onsite, we can help. Here’s what our commercial inspections include:

  • Advisement on septic equipment
  • Equipment, repair, and/or installation recommendations based on the size, use, and type of property

Note that we will need a number of documents and details about the project before the start of the inspection.
