Ignoring a septic system inspection could cost you a large amount of money in the long term! With most properties, your septic system is one of the most expensive things to replace or repair.
Lenders may require a septic system inspection when you buy, sell or refinance your home. New or old, proper design and installation is important to maximizing the system’s life. Septic system failures can be unsightly, foul smelling and can threaten your family’s health. There’s a risk of contaminating your well water, resulting in costly repairs or system replacement.
During the inspection, the technician explains how the system functions, how to maintain the system, and offer suggestions for repairs or replacement of different components that make up the system. Current septic system installation standards may require replacement of an older system with a much more expensive system. A septic inspection will help alert you to those unwanted replacement costs and unsafe conditions.
