Septic System Inspections
Conventional and Aerobic Septic System Inspections
A “Visual Septic Inspection” is where the visible components of the system are evaluated. The surface area above tanks and lateral lines are inspected for performance. This is the most common type of septic inspection.
A “Certified Septic Inspection” reviews the system’s internal parts, and the majority of the inspection is completed after a licensed septic company has pumped the tanks. The buyer is responsible for scheduling with a septic company to have the tanks pumped, and this must also be coordinated with East Texas Home Inspection.
A certified septic inspection requires that the inspector evaluate the septic system before and after the tanks have been pumped. A certified septic inspection cannot be conducted if the tanks are pumped before the inspector is on-site and performs the initial evaluation.
