A septic tank inspection and cleaning is a smart move before buying a new home. While not mandatory in CT, many banks do require a septic inspection before they will approve your loan.
We get it. Between the inspections, deposits and moving expenses, the upfront costs of buying a new home can really add up. We definitely don't recommend skipping a septic tank inspection to save a little money though. We've been called many times because a new buyer began having septic problems not long after moving into a new home; problems that a simple inspection of the system may have located prior to closing, meaning the seller could have contributed to or paid for the repairs rather than the buyer.
Sellers - We won't interrupt your daily routine at all. In fact, the inspection will take place while you are out of the house.
Buyers - We recommend you attend the inspection along with your real estate agent. One of our inspectors will be sure to greet you and then go over the inspection results with the utmost professionalism and courtesy.
OTHER REASONS YOU MAY NEED A SEPTIC INSPECTION
Sluggish and weak flushing toilets, slow draining sinks and unpleasant odors are all possible signs of a problem.
WET & LUSH DRAINFIELD
Puddles of water or unusually lush grass over your drainfield are also signs of a potential problem that may require an inspection to identify.
REMODELS & ADDITIONS
You'll want to make sure your septic system can handle the updates, and verify the locations so you don't accidentally build over your tank or drainfield.
WHAT'S A SEPTIC INSPECTION?
An inspection includes a walk-through of the yard above the septic system, as well as flushing toilets and running faucet to surge the system and check for leaks or other problems. It also includes checking the inside of your septic tank. The tank is typically pumped out, the drainfield monitored for backflow, and the pipes running to the house are inspected for blockages.
