What is a Septic System Inspection?
Septic system service is actually shorthand for Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Inspection. At All Atlanta | AmeriSpec Inspection Services, we complete a septic dye test which allows us to fully stress the system and test for any catastrophic failures. Should the tank be full or a field line clogged or damaged. This allows us to test the system without having to dig the yard up to remove the lid off the tank. Most sellers do not want you to disturb the landscaping before you have purchased it. This type of test can give a buyer some piece of mind. Also we are going to determine if there has been any additions to the house or added bedrooms that might cause the septic tank to be too small for the additional rooms.
The ICC building code says that the effective liquid capacity for dwellings shall be based on the number of bedrooms proposed or that can be anticipated. (If you finished the basement and add a bedroom generally your tank is too small)
