We don’t just inspect your system, we show you your system, inside and out.
With every full septic inspection, we provide a detailed report explaining any findings and deficiencies. We also provide valuable information such as:
We provide full color photos and videos of the inside of the tank as well as any inspected lines to and from the tank so that you can see for yourself how your system works and how it’s doing.
We understand that sometimes, you just need to inspect the septic system to meet a requirement for buying or selling a home, and don’t feel the need to spend extra money on a full system inspection.
As such, we do perform what’s called a “septic dye test”, which simply involves running water from a toilet or tub area and flushing dye down the line and into the tank.
This allows us to determine, after running enough water, if the treatment tank is leaking sewage onto the surface. If the water in the drain field has dye in it, it could be considered a public health hazard that needs to be addressed. This dye could take up to 3 days to appear on the surface, depending on the soil type.
While we provide just a dye test upon request, we do not recommend it, as a dye test cannot show us the condition of your tank overall, just if it is leaking. If the tank is clogged or otherwise is not draining properly into your absorption field, it can also still pass a dye test. As such, we at Fortress Inspections highly recommend a full septic inspection.
