Septic Dye Testing
If the property you’re purchasing has a septic system, it is crucial to have it inspected. Septic systems are responsible for disposing of household waste in a safe and responsible manner, and problems with a septic system can be extremely costly. The last thing you want is to purchase a property that has a septic system defect you aren’t aware of only to be saddled with a huge mess and a burdensome expense.
At HPI, we recommend that all clients purchasing a home with a septic system have it thoroughly inspected by a qualified septic contractor. Unfortunately, many septic systems are not properly maintained over the years and develop problems from lack of maintenance over time. For many, though, the expense of a full and invasive inspection is cost-prohibitive, and the septic dye test we offer is a good (and much less expensive) option. While a dye test is not a “complete” septic inspection, it does often reveal major system problems and is typically all that lenders require. We proudly offer this service at a great price to help give you peace of mind before buying a property with an on-site waste management system.
We also offer septic tank location services using enhanced technology for tanks that are difficult to locate with normal methods. We use a flushable transmitter that transmits a signal at a set frequency, along with a receiver that locates that signal, to identify exactly where your tank is located. Contrary to traditional methods that use a scope run through a drain line and take a good bit of time, this method is mess-free and extremely quick! We offer this enhanced service at a great price, and it is discounted when it is done as part of a home inspection. Knowing the location of your tank is crucial, so get in touch to schedule this service if you don’t currently know where your tank is located!
