Real Estate Septic System Inspection, Lakeland, FL

We can perform real estate septic system inspections for residential & commercial properties in Lakeland, FL.

Real Estate Septic System Inspection in Lakeland – Did you know that the visual septic system inspection conducted as part of a home inspection when purchasing a house might not tell you enough? Most home inspection companies simply run some water, flush the toilets and check that there isn’t any water surfacing over the septic tank area. While that type of septic system inspection can catch any obvious problems, it can also miss some big ticket expenses. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we can conduct a full real-estate septic system inspection that could save you thousands when purchasing real estate. Here are some things that we can find that a visual inspection often misses:

  • Wrong Size Tank – Although this is not a common problem, it can happen because either the contractor who built the home cut corners or the home had an addition put on, allowing for a higher capacity than the original tank was planned to handle.
  • Tank Problems – The septic tank could be leaking or overflowing or have corrosion or very thick sludge. While it could just need a good cleaning, it could require expensive repairs or even replacement.
  • Location – You really need to know exactly where the septic tank and drain field are located on your Lakeland, FL property. There have been instances when someone built an addition or deck over part of the system, or even added a secondary system without appropriate permits. It also isn’t a bad idea to know exactly where the system is so you can be sure not to park your car on it.

While these are all reasons to have a full real-estate septic system inspection done when buying a home, it is also a good idea for your current home. Give us a call today to schedule this service. We can also perform real estate septic system inspections for commercial properties.
