Some people get nervous when they find out that a home they want to buy is connected to a septic system. If you’re concerned about the condition of a septic system, MichiganPro Home Inspections can put your mind at ease with our professional septic inspections. We’ve been conducting septic tank inspections for more than a decade to protect our clients from potential problems.
While many other home inspectors skip right over septic system inspections, MichiganPro Home Inspections is a certified septic system inspection company that will both inspect and test the system for operation or failure. With our high-quality septic tank inspection service, our experts will be able to identify any septic tank issues for you. We’ll begin by confirming the location of the tank, removing the dirt at the exit side of the system, remove the lid and inspect the tank levels inside for sediment, scum and clear effluent to be sure the system is in balance. We then perform a septic load test while we monitor for breakouts or backups. Soil samples are taken at the field to determine if there is any compromised soil indicating failure. If we spot any performance issues, then we point them out to the seller so that they can engage a proper contractor for repairs and/or replacement.
In addition to examining what’s inside a septic tank during our septic system inspections, MichiganPro Home Inspections will also assess how efficiently water is flowing from the home to the tank, and field to be sure it meets our standards.
There is, unfortunately, no way to tell exactly how long a septic system is going to last. But with our septic tank and system inspection services, we strive to provide people with all the information they’ll need to evaluate the health of their septic systems.
