What Does a System Inspection Consist of?
An inspection is a complete septic examination performed by a technician certified by the state. These are most often required for real estate transactions so that buyers can be sure their home’s septic system is working properly. If you are buying or selling property and plan to schedule an inspection, make sure the inspector shows you the appropriate credentials to prove he is indeed certified. Our company proudly employs the largest number of certified inspectors in the wastewater industry. Let’s take a closer look at what our inspections look like.

Smaller Than GoPros? Check Out the Video Cameras that are Used to Diagnose Septic Problems
Technology has simplified so many areas of life including wastewater management. Septic maintenance continues to become simpler thanks to advancements in the equipment we use. Video technology is one that has truly been a game changer in our industry due to its ability to save time and money. When it comes to septic diagnosis, video cameras have revolutionized our methods of identifying and locating problems.
No More Guesswork
It used to be impossible to see what was going on underground in your septic system without a lot of digging. With the development of special cameras designed to travel through plumbing, technicians can now quickly take a look at the inside of your pipes. These septic cameras can go to great lengths to find clogs, roots, rust spots or cracks in pipes. They can also be used to find good things like that wedding ring you accidentally dropped down the sink.
No More Destruction
Camera technology now allows us to investigate a problem without excavation. Our technicians simply insert the camera and find the blockage or damage. If by chance your pipes are broken, you can even look at trenchless pipelining solutions that make repairs without any digging. Your grounds and landscaping can remain undisturbed from diagnosis to final repair.
Small Cameras, Big Savings
We can pass on great savings to the customer when eliminating the cost of excavation and time to diagnose the problem. Not only that, our little cameras are great for inspections and have grown in popularity as a preventative measure. Businesses like supermarkets and restaurants with high water consumption can certainly benefit from periodic camera inspections due to their ability to find unforeseen problems. Combine these inspections with a healthy maintenance regimen, and you will extend the life and efficiency of your septic system.
