An Important Choice

Guy inspecting septic tank while it is being pumpedAssuming that a septic tank is in good working order is a risk that no one should take. The potential expense and stress that a failed septic tank can cause for new home or cottage owners is simply not worth skipping the inspection. Did you know that the replacement costs for a new septic system can from $20,000 – $30,000?

A septic inspection will ensure that the system in question will function properly and not expose you & your family to financial or environmental harm. Knowledgeable realtors and lawyers will always recommend that a septic system pump out and inspection is a condition of the offer to purchase. It’s a critically important part of real estate buying and selling.

In addition to a full pump out, our licensed, MOE certified staff will determine and report:

  • The type of tank: concrete, steel, plastic, wood, or other
  • The size of the tank
  • The condition of the tank’s baffle, inlet baffle, and outlet baffle
  • The number of compartments
  • The number of clean outs
  • If the outflow to the leaching bed is clogged because of a back-up in the tank
  • If too much solid or scum material is in the tank
  • If it has been maintained properly
  • If the tank needs to be pumped more frequently
  • If any repairs need to be made.
