Septic System Video Inspections

What is a Septic System Inspection?

Septic system service is actually shorthand for Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Inspection. It’s an objective evaluation, based on the experience and expertise of a qualified inspector and in accordance with prescribed standards. Evaluating each component examined leads to a conclusion about the overall system’s current condition, which is presented in a written, narrative report. The report is not a warranty or guarantee that the system will properly function for any period of time. For more information, visit:

Identifying the Problem

Septic system problems can come to light in a variety of ways. Identifying an issue involves knowing what to look for, as some indicators can be more obvious than others. The most common septic tank issue is failure to remove solids from the tank with a pump (periodically necessary). The ongoing need for pump-out depends on the number of people using the system, the amount of wastewater generated and additional factors.
