If you are selling your home that has a septic system, we recommend that you have it inspected prior to putting it on the market to identify any unknown issues or cost.
Many cases, only minor repairs need to be made when your septic system is inspected. In some instances, an overused septic or an improperly installed septic system may require further maintenance, repairs, or even replacement. It is important to be made aware of any cost or repairs if needed.
Our inspection services and recommendations are extremely useful because we are dedicated to ensuring that you understand the problems with your septic system, and are able to make informed choices about your next steps. We are able to make repairs, offer treatment solutions, and install septic equipment.
We complete the following points of an inspection:
- Complete underground open-pit inspection
- Digital video camera viewing and analysis of all parts of the system
- Pumping (if needed)
- Mapping the system
- Probing and/or soil boring of the drainage area
Septic system inspections are not included in your typical home inspection. Septic systems last about 25 years, which means it’s imperative that you understand the life of your current system prior to buying. A new septic system can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $40,000, which is enough to impact the value of your home.
Our inspectors are certified, insured, and members of NEHA, and will provide you with a full report on the life expectancy of your system. We will also, after a system inspection, provide pumping services for an additional charge.
