Sure Flow Septic Inspections
Home Buyers - Septic Tank Inspections
If you’re buying a home, it’s imperative that you have the septic tank inspected. Septic systems can work efficiently for about 25 years. If you are buying a home with a septic system it is very important to get a thorough septic inspection as replacing a septic system can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000 or more.
A typical home inspection doesn’t include a septic system inspection. We are licensed with the N.J.S.M.A. and P.A.S.M.A. and have been providing septic inspections for many years.
When deciding whether to buy a house with a septic system, it is very important to ask the seller some basic questions such as finding out the last time it was pumped. As a general rule, a septic tank should be pumped every 2 years. If there are more than 5 people living in the home, it should be pumped every year as the more people that are living in the house places a higher demand on the septic system which may lead to problems if it is operating at a higher demand than it was designed to accommodate. Septic systems are designed based upon the number of bedrooms within the home. A home that may have more bedrooms than the system was designed for is a home that may have an early system failure.
By having a septic inspection, our inspector will check for signs of problems that could cost you thousands of dollars to repair should the system fail after purchase.
