Septic Inspection

NAWT Certified Septic Inspectors
All Areas

National Association of Wastewater Transporters Trained and Authorized Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Inspectors


  • Visual Examination of the Septic Tank >>
    Our septic inspectors first locate the septic system and open the tank cover. An examination of the inlet and outlet baffles is crucial both to our inspection and for a onsite wastewater treatment system to function properly. A determination of the approximate volume of the sewage treatment tank is made (generally following a measured septic tank pumping which is suggested prior to the inspection). The tank is then inspected for any visible cracks, corrosion and/or leakage that may compromise the effectiveness of the system. A visual inspection of area surrounding the system is made with inspection of any adjacent areas that have foul odor, this could suggest that the drainage field is not functioning properly.
  • Inspect the Distribution and Conveyance System >>
    Our certified septic inspectors examine the distribution box for proper division of effluent, as well as leakage, cracks, and corrosion. In areas with large plants or trees, roots commonly enter leach lines and partially and eventually completely constrict effluent from properly disbursing, in some cases causing premature failure of the leach field. If deemed necessary due to site conditions, inspection all pipes leading to and from the distribution box are examined using digital video technology.

  • Check the Dispersal Field >>
    Our septic system inspectors may use digital video to visually inspect pipes leading to the leach field or seepage pit. A visual inspection of the area surrounding the system is made with a note being made of any surfacing water and/or foul odors which may suggest the drainage field is not functioning properly.

  • Comprehensive and Easy to Read Reports >>
    Our inspection provides 2 documents: A cover letter clearly stating the overall condition of the existing system including any deficiencies that may be present. Independent assessments of the system’s three major components. We are NAWT Certified Septic Inspectors and provide all the paperwork you will need to satisfy Point of Sale Septic Inspection Requirements.

  • Locating of Existing Septic System Components >>
    This service is generally not included within our septic inspection fee. If the location of your system is completely unknown to you and your system lacks appropriate access risers and/or ports we'll have equipment on hand to locate and access the system. Due to the nature of the work, Septic System Locating work is billed on an hourly basis. Many older homes which have changed owners several times have little or no information available regarding the location and components of the existing septic system. Locating of the septic tank, distribution box, and drainage field (leach lines or seepage pits) is necessary to perform an inspection of any wastewater treatment system. Compounding the problem is that fact that many of these systems where installed without the now code required 'access risers to grade' which maintain access to the system for proper inspection and maintenance. Consequently electronic locating equipment is required to locate these systems. This is followed by manual excavation from the surface for visual inspection.
