Specializing in cleaning septic tanks, cesspools and grease traps, installing and repairing septic systems, and conducting septic system evaluations.
Evaluations start by finding the septic tank and disposal area. We recommend for the homeowner to be familiar with this location. For newly constructed septic systems, there should be a copy of the design plans. For older existing systems, simply diagramming the location to septic system components, measured from a common point on the building, is sufficient.
The septic tank
is then pumped to remove all liquid and solids enabling the inspection of the concrete inside of the tank, the baffles and the disposal field or seepage pit. The disposal field is probed and the water level is checked. The ground surface is checked for moisture and odors.
An evaluation of each fundamental component leads to a conclusion about the overall system's condition.
An evaluation is not a warranty or guarantee that the system will properly function for any period of time in the future.
