Most people answer would I don’t know. At its most basic, a septic system treats wastewater. That's it, plain and simple. From a basic concrete tank and drainfield, to the giant wastewater treatment facilities that treat towns and cities. The main purpose remains the same, to treat wastewater.
The answer is a simple one. It's because you don't know! Whether you are thinking about purchasing a home or own a home already, having a septic inspection performed will tell you what you don’t know. This starts with the basics.
If it's there, we will do everything we can to locate the system, not just the tank but all its components. A septic system has three basic components: the septic tank or treatment tank, the distribution system, and the soil absorption system. Together these things make up a septic system or Onsite Sewage Disposal System (OSDS).
Once we find it, we inspect it all to find out what type of system you have. From the most basic single compartment septic tank to one of the many advanced or innovative treatment units, we can inspect it. We strive to stay up to date on the latest inspection techniques and systems so you can be better informed.
Once we inspect the system, you will get an in-depth report of what the system is and what its current condition is. The report contains pictures of the deficiencies as well as the description of the problem. That way, it jogs the memory if you were present during the inspection and shows the item if you weren't. The report may include some video footage of certain items operating or not operating. Any faults that we find will be highlighted in an easy-to-understand report. If you have any questions, we are here to answer your questions; before, during, and after the inspection.
