When buying a home, you should always have a professional home
inspection performed. You need to know exactly what you are getting.
Making your buying decision much easier and more confident.
When we inspect the home we will look at the systems that make up the building such as:
In the Upstate South Carolina area, especially in rural areas, many
of the homes we inspect have private waste (septic) systems. If you are
buying a home with a septic tank, you should consider having it
inspected by a professional septic contractor. A standard home
inspection does NOT include this type of specialized, instrusive
inspection. To properly inspect the system, the contractor will need to
dig holes to access the underground parts of the system.
Understand, that a septic system inspection entails much more than
dropping a few dye tablets into a toilet - which is what many
home inspectors do!
It makes good sense to have the tank pumped at the time of
inspection. A professional septic contractor can perform both the
inspection and pump the tank, killing two birds with one stone and
assuring that you begin with an empty tank and a system that has been
inspected thoroughly. We recommend to our clients that a septic tank be
pumped every 3-4 years if a garbage (waste) disposal system is
installed or at least evey 7 years.
