What is a Septic Inspection?
A septic system is a sewage treatment system that is in use on properties that are not connected to public sewage facilities. Firstly, it separates solids and partially breaks them down into sludge. In the tank it then separates scum from any water. Next the system will filter the water which goes into a drain field that filters any bacteria before allowing the clean water back into the ground. Any waste will be periodically pumped and removed to a waste site. This system is vital in your home and a professional inspection is necessary to ensure that all is working effectively. It is key that the separation and filtration systems do not allow waste out into the drain field. Our expert team will perform a thorough check on how the system is working and provide you with an assessment and recommendations if any action needs to be taken.
For a full check to take place our team will need to thoroughly assess how the systems are performing. This will include access to the underground parts of the system by digging holes around it. This will also facilitate them to assess the base of the tank and check the leach field. A proper inspection by a licensed company such as ourselves, is vital to ensure that you, your loved ones, and your land are kept protected. A well-functioning sewage treatment system is imperative to your home.
What is a Well Inspection?
Some homeowners have a private well that supplies their water system. Regular inspection of this system is vital to spot any contaminants in your drinking water as well as mechanical problems. The only way to be certain that your water supply is clean, safe and reliable is to work with a well inspection service. Our expert will perform tests to ascertain the quality of your water, as well as assess the condition of the system itself. They will inspect aspects such as faulty gauges, any leaks and any element that is rusting. An annual well inspection is recommended by the US Environmental Protection Agency to ensure your utmost safety.
