Get the peace of mind you deserve with our real estate septic system inspections.
Everyone knows that getting a home inspection is an important part of buying a house, but what you may not know is that the standard home inspection may not detect some major issues with the septic system.
In general, a home inspector will do a visual inspection, checking to see if the toilets flush, the sinks and showers drain properly, and that there are no obvious signs of seepage or flooding around where the septic tank is buried. While these are all important, in order to have complete assurance that your new home has a properly functioning septic system, you need to schedule a real estate septic system inspection.
Part of why a real estate septic system inspection is so important is because the technician will actually check the tank during the inspection to ensure that it is the right size to handle the building occupancy, it is free of cracks or leaks, and there is no evidence of corrosion or heavy sludge.
A real estate septic system inspection will also ensure that you know exactly where the different elements of your septic system are located. This is important because you need to avoid parking your car or building additions on your drain field, since that can damage the pipes and cause leaks or other issues within the system.
While we always hope that contractors do their due diligence and get the proper permits and property records before a construction project, the reality is that sometimes they choose to cut corners. You never want someone else’s lack of care to cause you problems, and getting a real estate septic system inspection before you buy a home affords you invaluable peace of mind.
