Benefits of a septic inspection
Septic systems and wells are major, big-ticket items. With a reasonably priced replacement well being $6,000-$6,500, while a new drain field for a septic system can run anywhere from $7,500-$25,000. During the septic inspection the inspector with perform a visual examination of the interior of the tank and check levels to determine if pumping is needed at that time.
During the well inspection, the inspector will test the water system and check it for volume and pressure. They will look at the well to make sure it is properly constructed and compliant and they will run water tests for things like bacteria, nitrate, and arsenic, depending on the clients request.
The inspector will also look at the pumping equipment and conduct a thorough plumbing survey to see how the water is getting in and where it is ending up.
