Real Estate Septic Inspections are conducted to assess septic systems

Real Estate Septic Inspections

Are you currently in the process of purchasing a home or property with a septic system? In such cases, it is crucial to be aware of the system’s condition and efficiency before finalizing your purchase.

Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. offers professional real estate septic system inspections across the Lakeland, Florida area. Our expertise in septic systems allows us to quickly assess whether the one at your potential new home is functioning optimally.

When it comes to traditional home inspections, septic systems may not receive thorough attention. Often, inspectors only perform basic tests, such as flushing toilets, running water in sinks, and inspecting the yard for wet spots – tasks any homeowner could do themselves.

However, when you are making what might be the most significant investment of your life, you deserve comprehensive answers. To ensure you have a complete understanding of the property’s septic system, we strongly recommend scheduling a real estate septic system inspection before finalizing any transaction.

What to Expect During a Septic Inspection:

A real estate septic inspection aims to provide you with a clear and detailed assessment of the system’s condition. Our inspection process includes the following steps:

  • Complete Pumping: We thoroughly pump the septic tank to facilitate a more in-depth inspection of its floors and walls.
  • Tank and Drain Field Location: We identify and determine the size of the septic tank and drain field.
  • Effluent Filter Cleaning: If the system is equipped with an effluent filter, we ensure it is cleaned and functioning correctly.
  • Metered Stress Test: We conduct a metered stress test to assess how effectively the system handles water (see below).
  • Detailed Report: Following the inspection, we provide you with a comprehensive written report detailing our findings.
  • Education and Maintenance Guidance: As always, we take the time to educate you about your septic system’s components and offer guidance on the best practices for its maintenance and care.

By scheduling a real estate septic system inspection with Anytime Septic Solutions Inc., you can gain valuable insights into the state of the septic system at your potential new property, enabling you to make an informed decision and ensuring the long-term health and efficiency of your septic system.

The Importance of Septic System Inspections: A Smart Investment

Whether you are in the process of purchasing a new home or already residing in a property with a septic system, it is highly advisable to schedule regular inspections. This advice holds even more significance in real estate transactions.

Regrettably, we often receive distressing calls from new homeowners who were misinformed about the type of sewage system their property has. Some have been told that their home is connected to a sewer, only to discover later that it operates on a septic system. Others have been assured that the septic tank was recently pumped, only to find out that it is on the brink of overflowing.

As part of our comprehensive real estate septic system inspections, we conduct a hydraulic load test. This stress test involves using a gallons meter to assess the system’s response to the typical water usage of the household. It is an invaluable method for accurately evaluating the overall health and condition of the septic system.

While some competitors may overlook this crucial inspection procedure, we consider it an indispensable aspect of our real estate septic inspections. Leaving any stone unturned in such assessments could have significant consequences, which is why we refuse to conduct inspections without the hydraulic load test. Investing in a professional septic system inspection is a wise decision that pays off in the long run.

Receiving such calls is never pleasant, and undoubtedly, you wouldn’t relish making them either. When purchasing a new home, it’s crucial to conduct your own septic inspection rather than relying solely on the standard “home inspection.” Regardless of the assurances from the current homeowner, a comprehensive inspection can identify potential problems before they escalate into significant issues that could end up costing you thousands of dollars.
