New Home? Learn About the Importance of Having a Licensed Technician Inspect Your New Septic System
Congratulations, you just bought a new home! You’re all ready to make that down payment, but wait! There are some unpleasant issues to deal with first, and I’m not talking about the weird Peeping Tom across the street. I’m referring to the inspection of the septic system that is part of your new property. It’s essential to have it checked out and not just by your friend’s buddy who watched a YouTube video.
Why’s It So Important?
There are septic system regulations at every level of government, from federal to state, and even in some counties or cities. Septic systems have to meet a lot of requirements in order to be considered safe and healthy, and the list can get complicated. An inspection is also required by an outside party when selling or remodeling a home. On top of the legal reasons, it’s common sense. Your septic system could very well be the most expensive component of the home, so you want to make sure it’s in good working condition before you buy it.
Our technicians at Wind River are highly-trained, licensed professionals that know the requirements inside and out. First, we examine every part of the system, which may include some digging. Then we offer full-service pumping that gives you a fresh start and gives us a chance to make sure everything is operating properly.
Inspections end in either a Pass, a Conditional Pass, or a Fail. If you pass, we handle all the paperwork, clean everything up, and leave. If it’s a conditional pass, that means there are components that need to be repaired or replaced. Our technicians will take care of these as quickly as possible, clean up, and leave. If the owner fails the inspection, we will go over why and what needs to be done to bring the system back up to Board of Health requirements. See…aren’t you glad you didn’t buy the home yet? Now the owner, not you, can be responsible for making repairs.
Depending on your state, you may need more frequent inspections. Our local technicians stay up-to-date on all requirements necessary for your area, including certificates of compliance, reports, and maintenance.
