It is beneficial to have your septic tank inspected, not only when buying or selling your home, but for preventive maintenance purposes. We recommend obtaining a documented report by having your tank inspected every ten years to the standards of National Association of Wastewater Transporters (NAWT).

The purpose of this report is to provide the best possible assessment of the septic system and how it appears to be functioning at that time.  We evaluate both the septic tank and the absorption area.  Alpha Omega Septic Service offers a detailed report with over 35 points of inspection. We base our inspection results on the size of the home, provide tank location for future reference, site specific observations and repair information needed to meet codes, identify functioning-related issues, and offer tips for future care for buyers that are new to septic systems.

Certified inspectors must complete a comprehensive, onsite, sewage treatment systems course covering terminology, treatment, tanks, construction methods, and application, or demonstrate competence in the field prior to qualifying for the inspector training program.

What Does A Septic System Certification Include?

Primary System Inspection
Septic Tank

  1. Locate septic tank by way of probing.
  2. Expose both the solid and liquid compartment lids of the septic tank by way of hand digging. Pump contents of both the solid and liquid compartments and rinse with water.
  3. Inspect the condition of the septic tank walls, floor, top, and lids for deterioration and ensure that both solid and liquid baffles are in place.
  4. Place the lids back on the septic tank and backfill holes.

Secondary System Inspection
Seepage Pit or Leach Line

  1. Locate seepage pit or leach line by way of probing.
  2. Expose the access port of the seepage pit or expose a section of the leach line by way of hand digging.
  3. Inspect the condition of the brick walls of the seepage pit for deterioration and root invasion or inspect condition of the leach line rock for saturation and the pipe for root invasion.
  4. Backfill hole.

Please allow one business day following the inspection for the certification report to be prepared.
