When preparing to buy a home or commercial space, too many people focus solely on the property’s appearance without considering the quality of the systems they can’t see.

Our Septic System Inspection Process
To begin the septic evaluation*, our professionals will do a visual inspection of the system’s functionality. Next we’ll flow 500 gallons of water into the drainage system and evaluate its performance.
This test will reveal any major septic system problems the property may have, such as the following:
- Septic backup
- Improperly functioning drainage field
- Poorly operating system
The Importance of Septic Tank Inspections
The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that homeowners have a septic tank inspection every three years and pump their septic tanks every 3–5 years. This ensures that everything is functioning correctly. It also alerts you to any minor repairs before they turn into major crises.
Ignoring septic system maintenance could lead to irreversible damage that jeopardizes the quality of your ground water and costs you thousands of dollars in repairs. At ProTech, we’ll ensure that the property’s septic system has been cared for so you don’t get stuck with an expensive repair bill in the future.

Many Federal lending programs will require a septic evaluation and a termite inspection if the home is vacant. Check with your lender before the home inspection is completed. When choosing ProTech, you will save $50.00 on a septic evaluation fee if it is completed during your home inspection.
In addition to septic system inspections, we also offer other assessments that evaluate a specific aspect of the property, including radon gas testing, indoor mold testing, termite damage inspections, and spa and pool inspections. Don’t make an uninformed buying decision. Instead, contact us today.
