Real Estate Inspections
If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t give your septic system much thought until something goes wrong, and by then it’s often too late. Repairs can be costly, so if you’re buying or selling a home with a septic system, it’s a good idea to have it inspected to ensure that it’s functioning properly. The last thing you want is a backed up septic system just weeks before closing.
If you’ve never had a home with a septic system before it’s important to know how things work. A septic system is installed if the property is not connected to public sewer. Most systems have three main parts: a treatment tank, distribution pipes and an absorption area, commonly called a drainfield.
