Septic System Inspections
Did you know as a homeowner you’re responsible for maintaining your septic system? Did you know maintaining your septic system protects your investment in your home? Did you know you should periodically inspect your system and pump out your septic tank?
If properly designed, constructed and maintained your septic system can provide long-term effective treatment of household wastewater. If your septic system isn’t maintained, you might need to replace it costing you thousands of dollars. A malfunctioning system can contaminate groundwater that might be a source of drinking water, and if you sell your home, your septic system must be in good working order.
Replacing a complete septic system starts at a minimum of $15,000.00 - Something to seriously consider.
Ask your real estate professional to include a septic inspection condition in your offer to buy. This condition should also include that the seller or their Representative must uncover the inlet and outlet lids before the inspection.
Septic inspections can not be done when the ground is frozen.
This is a separate report independent from the home inspection.
