Septic System EvaluationsConfused about whether you need a Septic Inspection before selling your home or buying one? If you are considering a home inspection for your selling or buying transaction, make sure to include a Septic System Inspection.

Why? Because septic systems are buried in the ground and they’re often the last thing people think about. Until something goes wrong and then it’s realized how important the septic system is. A failed or malfunctioning septic system is a big expense, a health risk to humans, animals and can be a source of environmental pollution.

Quick Overview

Did you know that about 1 in 5 homes in the US depend on individual onsite or small community cluster systems (septic systems) to treat their wastewater? But, you’d be surprised how many people don’t know what a septic system is or how it works. Septic systems treat and dispose of small volumes of wastewater that come from homes and businesses located in areas not served by a centralized public sewer system. It takes water and waste from plumbing fixtures such as toilets, laundry, sinks, showers, etc. It is important that your septic system is healthy and in good working condition.

A septic service professional recommends the septic system be inspected at least every 3-years and the septic tank pumped every 3-5 years. However, many homeowners wait until something is wrong to have problems treated. At this point, a major repair could be needed and cost hundreds to thousands of dollars when an inspection may have alerted the homeowner of the problem and it could have been fixed for much less expense.

Getting a regular Septic Inspection and pumping will not only save you money from a major repair but from any unwanted surprises too! So, whether you are buying a home or selling, a septic Inspection is a good idea!
