What is Septic Certification?
A septic certification is a process of doing a full inspection of the septic system. When doing a inspection on a septic system we will need to dig up the concrete access plugs that are large enough to get our head and shoulders into the tank. Most tanks will need to be pumped to visually inspect the inside of the septic system. We will inspect the baffles, integrity of the tank and lids, and remove any roots that may be in the baffles or tank. We will also run water out into the drain field for approximately 30 minutes to make sure they are working at the proper rate of taking the water. Once the full inspection is complete and passing we will submit it to the county to receive a passing certification report.
When Should I Schedule an Inspection?
It is always best to schedule a septic inspection at least 2 weeks before your closing date. This will give you time if any repairs on the tank or drain fields need to be done and the county can take up to 5 days on issuing the septic certification. You can always call us and we would be happy to guide you through the process and schedule. You can also schedule an inspection online by clicking here. All you need to do is fill out the form and email or fax it back.
All of our sevicemen and employees are licensed by the National Association of Wastewater Technicians to do septic inspections. For your peace of mind the job will be done correctly and up to code.
