Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, you may want to have your septic system inspected by a Maryland Certified Inspector. Buying a home is an investment, and you will want to make sure you have peace of mind. There are a number of different tests and processes we follow during the inspection:
Sewer Camera Inspection- Inspecting the lines of the inlet/outlet pipes to your septic tank. The drain field lines will be inspected if accessible. This will allow us to evaluate the pipes and their quality.
Flow Test- Flushing water into the septic system to test the drain field for proper absorption. The amount of water being flushed is dependent on the number of bedrooms and people living in the household.
Probing the Drain Field- While the Flow Test is being performed, we probe the drain field area to check for its location and accuracy to the Health Department records.
Following the inspection, an official report will be provided as well as any records provided by the local Health Department.
Overall, the goal of the inspection is to provide insight on the function of the system while educating the customer of the important factors that make the system work.
