CAMERA-ASSISTED SEPTIC TANK INSPECTIONS
Septic systems are by nature largely buried underground. This can make visual inspection difficult or impossible without the aid of specialized tools. Today, camera-assisted septic tank inspection methods have revolutionized the efficacy of this task by allowing your septic professional to visually inspect every portion of the system carefully and thoroughly. During this process, a digital camera is sent through your entire septic system and drain field via an extendable pole or cable. This provides unparalleled visualization of every component and drain line in your septic system so your septic professional can completely assess your system and identify the smallest potential for future problems, including buildup, cracked pipes, and tree root invasion.
WHY YOU NEED A SEPTIC TANK INSPECTION
Before you buy a home or commercial property, it’s important to know the state of every system you are purchasing. A septic tank plays a vital role in the overall performance of your plumbing system and your property’s health and safety conditions. Because your septic tank is buried underground, a professional inspection is needed to thoroughly assess its condition, maintenance history, and likely future performance.
DETERMINE THE CONDITION
Even if you have already scheduled a property inspection prior to purchase, a separate septic tank inspection is necessary. Property inspectors are not plumbing or septic experts and may only check the visible portions of your septic tank to ensure it appears to be in good repair. However, this cursory check will reveal very little about the actual state of the system, thus necessitating a dedicated septic tank inspection to determine the condition of your grease trap or septic tank.
DISCOVER POTENTIAL PROBLEMS
Septic tank problems are easy to avoid, but often costly to repair. You don’t want to move into a new property only to have to immediately consider major septic tank repair or even full system replacement. Scheduling a septic tank inspection prior to purchase will alert you to potential problems with the system that you can address with the seller before you obtain ownership of the property.
