How The Inspection Process Works
In order to make sure our customers get the very best in terms of thoroughness and quality, our professionals carry out a multi-step septic system inspection process which covers every facet of your system.
First, the septic system will be located on the property, and this includes the tank, piping, drainfield, and any other parts which may be involved in your particular type of system. After all parts are located, our professionals will then investigate each part of your system to ensure all are working properly, and no signs of impending damage are seen.
During the course of your Delaware Valley area septic system inspection, we will also measure the scum and sludge layers in your septic tank to determine if the tank is in need of pumping. Generally, if the sludge layer reaches around 1/3 of the depth of the wastewater layer, the tank will require a pumping in order to continue to work efficiently without risk of backup or damage.
How Inspections Benefit Real Estate Agents
The role of a real estate agent is to sell a particular home or property, and the parties who may be interested in the property will typically want to know the state of the plumbing and septic systems before making the purchase. With a septic system inspection, a real estate agent can rest assured that the septic system of the property is working properly without the presence of damage, allowing the agents to more confidently sell to those they are looking to reach. With a full inspection, any problems, or problem areas, of the system can also be addressed, so the system can be left in the best possible condition.
How Inspections Benefit Home Buyers
When a person sets out to buy a home, they will naturally want the most important components of the property to be working efficiently, and this includes the septic system. With routine maintenance and inspection, septic systems can work well for many decades, but their malfunctioning can prove to create a very hazardous situation. A septic system inspection can help home buyers to get a better look at the state of the system on any property they may be interested in, and it can save them trouble should the system be found to show impending damages or the need for repair.
How Inspections Benefit Home Sellers
Septic systems can be beneficial to those looking to sell a home due to their ease of maintenance paired with their durability and energy efficiency. Proper regular maintenance is inexpensive and rarely inconvenient with septic systems, and often even the strongest storms will cause the system little disruption. For those hoping to sell their home, these benefits can turn to deciding factors for potential buyers who value convenience as well as the conservation of energy. With a new inspection and a clean bill of health for the system, the presence of the system can act as an effective selling point.
