If you’re considering buying a new home in Central Florida, you may be feeling stressed from all of the tedious things you need to get done before you move in. However, we hope you don’t decide to cut corners to get the process done and over with. After all, buying a home is an investment and under no circumstances, should you toy with that investment by failing to get a septic inspection.
Why Get a Septic System Inspection?
We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to get a septic system inspection before you purchase a home. One of the reason’s is because septic system problems and issues tend to happen over time. Getting an inspection done on your system can bring to light problems or potential problems. This way, you can take action before things get out of control and very expensive.
Also, you can never be too sure how well or how bad a previous owner treated their septic system. Did they properly maintain their system? Were they notorious for overloading the septic tank or introducing grease, fats and oils into the tank? Not knowing these types of things is why you should get a septic system inspection. Think of it like buying a used car. Before you purchase the car, the smartest thing you can do is hire a mechanic to inspect the vehicle for any potential problems. At Lapin Services, our technicians do the same for your septic system to make sure the purchase of your new home is a solid buy. After all, if the septic system is in bad shape, after you purchase the home you are responsible for the costs of repair.
You Scheduled a Septic Inspection. Now What?
When our technicians come out to the property, the first thing they will do is locate both the septic tank and the drainfield. They will document the measurement and location of your drainfield as well as the size of your tank.
Next, the technician will pump out your septic tank to make sure they get a good look at the inside of the tank. They will take a look at the outlet, distribution box, the structural integrity of the walls of the tank and other components. During this part of the process, our technicians will inform you of any damages or potential problems to look out for with your septic system. They will also take time to provide you with information on how you can take care of your septic system and some things of what to do and what not to do. This information will help you to increase the longevity of your system.
