For the Purchase or Sale of a Home

Your septic inspection will include:

  • Camera inspection between house & tank. We use this to look for: bellys, cracks, clogs, roots, crushed lines, slope from house to tank, inlet baffe, pipe materials, overflow from tank into line, debris build up on sidewalls/top of pipe, air gap in septic tank.

    • The inspection between the home and the septic tank is what most inspection consists of and will usually allow us to make an educated opinion as to the overall condition of the system. 

  • Inspect the condition of the tank and take a core sample of the tank to inspect how full the tank is. (If septic tank is accessible)

  • Inspect the box and all incoming/outgoing lines from the box. (If the distribution box is accessible)

  • Drainfield inspection including checking the conditions of the lines and checking for ponding or surfacing (if the drainfield is not buried and accessible)

  • Inspect any pumps or components that are part of the septic system. 

  • Detailed report of findings

  • 30 +/- minutes of phone calls about the inspection. We'll take this time to explain in detail the condition of the system, and any recommendations needed.

    • Use this time wisely - we advise having buyer, seller, both real estate agents and any other inportant parties on these calls together to make the best use of the time.

What is not included: 

  • Properties located more than a 45 min. drive from Heber, UT

  • Removing toilets

  • Cutting or re-routing plumbing to get into lines

    • We have the best equipment in the industry to access lines. We have two camera sizes that are extremely flexible and can access pipes as small as 1 1/4" diameter as well as maneuver tight plumbing turns. Reasonable efforts will be made to access your plumbing. ​

  • Repairs to the system and/or plumbing​

  • Unclogging or jetting of lines

  • Digging up the septic tank 

    • most tanks are buried and it is fairly costly to dig the tank up. This work is usually deferred until the real estate transaction is complete.​

  • Pumping of the septic tank​

  • Soils inspection on the drainfield

  • Guarantee of performance of the system

    • A system can look good during time of inspection and have issues later on. Likewise a system may appear to have problems during the inspection, but be functional for a significant amount of time. ​

In order to start an inspection, we'll need to know where to find a sewer clean-out. Most houses will have one located outside somewhere. It will will look something like the example shown here.

 

They are often buried.
