Our Open-Pit Septic Inspection Process
- Evaluation of septic components inside the home: Ecoaire Septic Inspectors check all connections, components, and associated pipes for proper connections. We also determine whether all waste lines are properly discharging into approved waste systems.
- Examination of the inside of the treatment tank: Our inspectors open the tank, examine the inlet and outlet baffles and determine the volume of the treatment tank. The tank is then inspected for cracks, corrosion, and leakage. In addition, our inspectors also check the waste levels inside the treatment tank.
- Inspection of the conveyance system: Ecoaire’s expert septic inspectors examine the distribution box for leakage, cracks, and corrosion. Our inspectors also make sure that the distribution box is level. As part of this inspection, all pipes leading to the box are examined using digital video camera technology. Any pipes that are broken or corroded will be identified.
- Checking of the absorption area: Our septic inspectors use digital cameras to visually inspect pipes leading to the absorption (leech) field. Ecoaire inspectors visually inspect the surface area to locate signs of system backups and probe underground to check for any signs of bio-mat or standing water.
- Comprehensive and easy to read reports: Our inspection provides 2 documents: A cover letter stating clearly the overall condition of the septic system and what problems may be present, as well as independent assessments of the system’s three major components. It also provides a detailed report based on NJDEP standards evaluating each component.
Many septic inspection companies perform incomplete inspections. With Ecoaire Septic Inspections, you can be assured that our standard inspections are always complete.
- A septic system homeowners guide will be given at the end of every inspection.
