Septic System Inspections
Maine Septic & Pumping has certified septic inspectors and uses old fashion digging and up-to-date camera-eye technology to give you a thorough septic inspection. A thorough inspection includes locating, digging and removing the covers on the treatment tank. Assessing the baffles; the sludge and scum levels in the tank; and checking the general integrity of the tank. Pumping is suggested to complete the tank inspection. The inspection continues tracing the exiting pipe from the treatment tank to the pump chamber and/or distribution box and out to the absorption area. These items are located, dug and inspected. The absorption area will have one to two test areas dug to determine the liquid levels in this area.
Benefits of an Inspection:
- Provides the home buyer with a detailed report of the location and condition of the system components at the time of the inspection.
- The data collected assists the home buyer with their purchasing decision.
