Warning: Be wary of septic inspection companies that perform septic tank inspections & provide repairs to septic systems.
A major concern for many home buyers and sellers comes from septic inspection companies that repair the septic systems that they test. This presents a conflict of interest. ASI does not repair or install septic systems and has no financial interest in the septic inspection results. What this means is that you are assured accurate and impartial septic inspection results! Follow this septic link for more Q & A about septic inspections & septic tank testing.
Make sure your septic inspection company has insurance!
Many septic inspectors do not carry valid insurance because they can’t get it! Liability policies and errors and omissions insurance are very expensive and unavailable to septic inspection companies especially if clients have filed claims against the company for issuing faulty reports. How can you protect yourself? Ask for a copy of the septic inspection company’s errors and omissions policy. You can be assured that Advanced Septic Inspections holds valid liability and errors & omissions policies. Copies are always available upon request.
Septic Tank Inspection Facts
Septic systems are an important part of any home or building and should be tested by a septic inspector trained under association septic inspection standards. A common misconception by homebuyers ordering septic inspections is that septic tanks treat sewage; they do not. Septic tanks merely remove some solids and condition the sanitary flow so that it can be safely disposed of to a subsurface facility such as a tile field, leaching pools, or buried sand filter. ASI’s septic inspection will test the working components of the septic system. Additionally, the organic solids retained in the tank undergo a process of liquefaction and anaerobic decomposition by bacterial organisms. The clarified septic tank effluent is highly odorous, contains finely divided solids, and may contain enteric pathogenic organisms. The small amounts of gases produced by the anaerobic bacterial action are usually vented and dispersed to the atmosphere without noticeable odor or ill effects.
