Septic System InspectionsIf your buying a property with a septic system you should have it inspected, and you’ll need to know how it works and where the components are located.

A-ProAdvantage Inspection Services does not perform Septic Inspections but can arrange to have one done on your behalf. We have affiliations with several licensed inspectors.

Effective January 1, 2008, North Carolina is requires that any valid septic inspection or system be installed by someone who is a Septic System Inspector certified at the appropriate level. There are four levels of certification depending in complexity of the septic system.

Septic System InspectionsTanks should be inspected for accessibility at the soil surface, notice any tank leakage or cracks, access riser and lid integrity should not be cracked, solids level in the tank for pumping requirements and filter cleaning requirements. The inspection also looks at the drain-fields and noting wastewater at the soil surface; surface water diversions away from the drain-field; type, quality and quantity of vegetative cover; presence of low or settled areas; and protection from being damaged. The pumps should be operational, the pump float switches should be functioning properly, the alarm would be operation, and the condition of the electrical control panel should be functioning properly.
