Septic Inspections Orlando

Septic Inspections

There are four basic types of septic inspections that can be performed on either residential or commercial systems.

Drainfield Inspection – This is a free inspection of your septic system that Lapin Services offers. It is a brief investigation of your system by one of our project managers to determine the current condition of your drainfield. We will offer explanations of how your system works and help you make decisions to prevent problems or to solve any problems found.

Real Estate Inspection – This type of inspection is used to determine the condition of a septic system before the buyer completes the sale. Similar to having a roof inspected or having a termite inspection, a septic real estate inspection is essential in saving the buyer thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs.

The inspection will include a pump-out of the septic tank in order to see inside the tank to check for the structural integrity of the tank walls, lids, and baffle. The inlet and outlet will be checked along with the filter. The drainfield will be checked through various means to determine if there are any obvious or potential problems.

There are various types of Real Estate Inspections to choose from (see our Realtors section for details) depending on the type of system being inspected. A report will be given stating the condition of the system along with a proposal to bring the system up to standard operations, as needed.

Septic System Verification – When a home or commercial establishment is being expanded upon, such as an addition to a home, the county health
department will require a septic system verification to determine if the currently installed system is capable of handling the anticipated wastewater flow from the addition. Mortgage companies may also require verifications of the system before approving an equity line or mortgage to ensure the system is operating correctly.

The verification will include a pump-out of the septic tank in order to see inside the tank to check for the structural integrity of the tank walls, lids, and baffle. The inlet and outlet will be checked along with the filter. The drainfield will be checked through various means to determine if there are any obvious or potential problems.

A report will be sent to the health department, along with the owner, stating the condition of the system along with a proposal to bring the system up to standard operations, as needed.

Septic Tank Certification – Tank certifications are called for when replacing the drainfield of an existing system. The county health department requires this report from a septic contractor to ensure the tank does not need to be replaced as well.

The certification will include a pump-out of the septic tank in order to see inside the tank to check for the structural integrity of the tank walls, lids, and baffle.

The inlet and outlet will be checked along with the filter.

A report will be sent to the health department, along with the owner, stating the condition of the tank along with a proposal to bring the system up to standard operations, as needed.
