Maine Septic Inspection FAILED

Well we have had a few of these calls lately. Great to hear that real estate is being considered again and do not neglect to have a septic system inspection done on that property you may be considering.

Now a couple things to know;

1. If you hear that a septic tank or leach field was repaired and is now working, be very cautious. We have seen unsuspecting buyers believe that a repaired system is the same as a new system only to be calling us a couple years after moving in with their toilets backed up and a $12,000 price tag.  2. Just pumping the tank is not a septic inspection. You need to see inside the disposal area where past effluent levels are recorded. The property could of been vacant or unused before pumping, and 3. If you get a failed septic system inspection report you need to hire a Maine Site Evaluator to design a replacement system for that property. This will give you a detailed installation plan that can be estimated by a septic system installer.  From that point you can go back a negotiate with the seller.

We are always available if you have any questions or are in need of Maine Septic Design work on short notice. Cell is 229-7482 anytime. We are glad to help.
