Septic Functional Inspections Happening Today In Rhode Island

Septic Preservation Services has Septic Functional Inspections scheduled today in Coventry, North Kingstown, Exeter, Cranston, Johnston and Scituate RI.

As stated in the Rhode Island Handbook for Inspection:

“Approximately 150,000 Rhode Island households, or one third of the state’s population, use some form of septic system for sewage disposal. Rhode Island’s septic systems discharge some seven billion gallons of wastewater into the ground each year. When used properly, septic systems function very well. If mismanaged, however, these systems will fail, creating conditions that may threaten human health and the environment. Untreated effluent from malfunctioning septic systems may reveal itself by sight and smell, when a system backs up, or it may quietly percolate through the soil into the groundwater and adjacent water bodies.”

Therefore it is always advisable to have septic systems inspected, especially if you are buying a home with a septic system. A functional inspection is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household. The septic functional inspection is especially intended for use during a property transfer as a means to protect the consumer and identify systems in need of upgrade or repair. If you require a septic inspection or if you have questions about Septic Functional Inspections or septic systems please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic Inspection On Norton MA Condominium

Septic Preservation Services provide a septic inspection for a property in Norton MA every 3 years. This not because they are buying and selling every few years but because it is a condominium with more than 5 units and therefore needs to have a septic inspection every 3 years as stated by Mass Gov:

“ Condominiums with 5 or more units – all systems must be inspected every 3 years”

The condominium association are happy to have us come and inspect their septic system on a repeat basis because they know we provide a thorough and professional septic inspection and will continue to do so for many years. We also have other septic inspections scheduled today in Taunton, Canton, Stoughton, Hingham, Sharon and Hanover MA.

Septic Inspections for Property Owners Who Are Selling

Septic Preservation Services in addition to servicing and repairing septic systems also has licensed septic inspectors who can provide septic inspections and septic assessments when requested. The majority of our septic system inspections are carried out because a property owner is selling their property and it has not had an inspection within the last 2 years so it is required to have one. Our inspector will use use the MassDEP-approved inspection form and submit it within 30 days of the inspection. For most systems, the Inspector is responsible for submitting the inspection report directly to the Board of Health. The buyer must also receive a copy from the seller of the property. In some cases, inspection reports must be submitted to authorities other than the Board of Health. For more information see Mass Gov website

We will always advise people who are selling a property with a septic system to have their septic inspection done early. This is because Inspections in connection with a property sale generally are good for 2 years (If a system is pumped annually and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for 3 years). Therefore you can have this done well before you have a buyer and it will consequently be completed and not cause delays later on in your sale. It will also be a selling point for your realtor when advertising the property because the prospective buyers know that the system has passed its septic system inspection. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Sharon, Wrentham, North Attleboro, Seekonk and Attleboro MA. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic System Inspections In Maine To Prevent Septic Problems

 Septic Preservation Services has extensive experience working in the septic industry in Maine providing septic services including septic repairs, septic system inspections, OBD services and repairs and septic remediation. As you would expect many of our customers live in remote parts of the state, sometimes on islands or remote locations. However a large number of our customers also live in towns and are still not connected to a town sewer but have an individual septic system instead to process their wastewater. When these systems are working correctly they are a safe and environmentally efficient way to process a property’s waste. However failing systems can:

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
  • reduce the value of your property,
  • be very expensive to repair,
  • and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system.

If you have a septic system servicing your property it is always wise to be alert to warning signs of a failing system which can include:

  • sewage surfacing over the drainfield (especially after storms),
  • sewage back-ups in the house,
  • lush, green growth over the drainfield,
  • slow draining toilets or drains,

We are carrying a septic system inspection today for a customer in Biddeford, Maine who wants to know that their system is operating correctly. We have other septic system inspections today for customers in Cape Elizabeth, Arundel, Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunk Port, Kennebunk and Alfred Maine.
