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
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.
