Septic System Inspections

Comprehensive Assessment:

Our inspection process begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your entire septic system, encompassing the tank, distribution box, and drain field. Our certified inspectors meticulously examine each component for signs of wear, damage, or malfunction.

Tank Evaluation:

The septic tank is the heart of your system, responsible for separating solids from wastewater. Our inspectors meticulously assess the tank’s condition, checking for leaks, corrosion, or structural issues. If necessary, we’ll pump the tank to facilitate a more thorough examination.

Distribution Box Inspection:

The distribution box ensures even distribution of effluent to the drain field pipes. Our inspectors meticulously examine the distribution box for any signs of blockages, leaks, or deterioration that could compromise its functionality.

Drain Field Assessment:

The drain field is where wastewater undergoes final treatment and dispersal into the soil. Our inspectors carefully assess the drain field’s condition, looking for signs of saturation, ponding, or biomat buildup. Soil testing may also be conducted to evaluate absorption capacity.

Functional Testing:

In addition to visual inspections, our team performs functional tests to verify proper system operation. This may include flow and drainage checks, as well as dye tests to detect leaks or system failures.

Comprehensive Reporting:

Following the inspection, we provide you with a detailed report outlining our findings and any recommended repairs or maintenance. This report serves as a valuable resource for regulatory compliance and property maintenance.

Maintenance Recommendations:

Based on our findings, we offer personalized recommendations for ongoing maintenance to ensure your system’s continued health and longevity. This may include scheduling routine pumping, implementing water conservation measures, or addressing identified issues promptly.
