Septic Tank Inspection
Septic Tank Inspections are carried out to inspect the integrity of a septic tank. Septic Tank Inspections are also regularly carried out as part of our pre-purchase ‘HOME BUYERS TEST’. This inspection enables us to assess the condition of a septic tank and to ensure all the necessary parts are present and in good working order.
The Benefits Of A Septic Tank Inspection
- Inspects the integrity of a septic tank
- Ensures all necessary parts are working
- Can identify soakage problems
- Reveals Pre-Purchase problems
The outlet from the septic tank should have clear clean water exiting the tank. Sometimes when a septic tank is being emptied, it is a possibility that the operator emptying the tank could knock off one of the baffles without realising it.
If the outlet of the septic tank has no baffle, then the tank fills up and all the sewage goes in to the soakage area – which then blocks up and can then result in having to change the soak pit or drainage area completely, as the sewage cannot be ‘removed’.
Note: Details about domestic waste water treatment systems are outlined in our free downloadable FAQ report.
Schematic Of A Septic Tank
A septic tank has an inlet and outlet and needs to have a ‘ Baffle’ on each side, in order to handle the sewage correctly as shown here in the diagram.
What Our Customers Say
Dan saved us over €5000 + more!
Dan inspected 2 houses for us, we were ready to buy. However, in both cases, he found issues with the pipework. Underground leaks we would never have discovered until it was too late and damage had been done to the foundations and structure of the house. He saved us over €5000 immediately and a lot more in the long run! I would recommend a drain test for everybody buying a house, it is critical information. Dan did a fantastic job explaining exactly what the issues were, his reports were easy to understand & ready the very next day! 5 STAR SERVICE.
