When it comes time to sell your property, this information could prove valuable to a potential buyer when they make their own evaluation of the property. Once this is complete, a report will be written detailing all that was found during the inspection. It will outline the condition of the tank and the entirety of the system itself to determine what types of replacements or repairs will need to be made.
Our team can also provide you with a video inspection of the entire process so you can see how in depth our staff goes into your system. We will check all pipes leading to and from the septic tank to locate any cracks or damages that may be typically overlooked or difficult to find. Most importantly, it could save you money on potential repairs further down the road.
We are available 24/7 and no matter when you call you'll always speak with a live person.

We strive to maintain the highest degree of strategic planning to handle your job with superior efficiency and effectiveness.
Typically our inspection begins with locating and exposing the access cover(s) on the tank. An assessment on the condition of the tank, baffles and whether there is a need for risers is made at this time. We remain steady in the belief that the septic tank must be pumped to ensure a proper inspection. Many times we have encountered a tank that leaks groundwater in or has other issues unseen below the normal operating liquid level.
A fiber optic camera is then used to scope the distribution line exiting the tank toward the leaching system. Existing conditions are documented and a flow test is begun. A flow test is simply the addition of water at the outlet (or if access is limited, through the tank) which mimics usage within the home. This allows us to assess if the system is functioning properly. The use of both the camera and a flow test to determine the current conditions, as well as the leaching system’s ability to accept and drain additional wastewater, ensures you the most comprehensive inspection possible. Where applicable, other components of the leaching system may be exposed (i.e. distribution boxes, drywells) to gain a broader knowledge and understanding of the overall condition of the septic system.
We also look to confirm that only the correct plumbing exits into the septic system (no discharge from sump pumps or water softener systems). While on-site we will look at the property for any limiting factors should the septic system need repair or replacement in the future. After the inspection is completed, a report will be e-mailed detailing our findings within 24 hours, regarding the condition of the septic system as a whole, along with our recommendations and any repairs needed.
