Septic System Inspection

Confused whether you need a Septic Inspection before selling your home or buying one? If you are considering a home inspection for your selling or buying transaction, make sure to include a Septic System Inspection.

Why? Because septic systems are buried in the ground and they’re often the last thing people think about. Until something goes wrong and then it’s realized how important the septic system is. A failed or malfunctioning septic system is a big expense, a health risk to humans, animals and can be a source of environmental pollution.

Quick Overview

Did you know thatabout 1 in 5 homes in the US depend on individual onsite or small community cluster systems (septic systems) to treat their wastewater? But, you’d be surprised how many people don’t know what a septic system is or how it works. Septic systems treat and dispose of small volumes of wastewater that come from homes and businesses located in areas not served by a centralized public sewer system. It takes water and waste from plumbing fixtures such as toilets, laundry, sink, shower, etc. It is important that your septic system is healthy and in good working condition.

A septic service professional recommends the septic system be inspected at least every 3-years and the septic tank pumped every 3-5 years. However, many homeowners wait until something is wrong to have problems treated. At this point, a major repair could be needed and cost hundreds to thousands of dollars when an inspection may have alerted the homeowner of the problem and it could have been fixed for much less expense.

Getting a regular Septic Inspection and pumping will not only save you money from a major repair but from any unwanted surprises too! So, whether you are buying a home or selling, a septic Inspection is a good idea!

Common Signs of Septic Failures

  • Foul odors around the septic tank or drain field
  • Sinks, showers, and bathtubs draining slowly
  • Standing water near or around the septic tank or drain field
  • Green, spongy, lush grass around the septic tank
  • Algal blooms in nearby water bodies
  • Gurgling sounds in the plumbing system
  •  High levels of nitrate or coliform bacteria

Our 5-Star Reviews | Home Inspections Longview TX

Quintessential on every level. In addition to his professional expertise, Jeff’s written reports are thorough, detailed with excellent photographs that support his observations . His written report was back to us in less than 24 hours. Jeff is efficient in both his work and reliable in keeping his appointment ON TIME. Before and after his inspection, Jeff took time to address concerns in a friendly manner to let his us know that he genuinely cares, rather than just in and out for the money. And his rates are unbelievably reasonable. My only regret is that we did not have Jeff Kresta inspect our home prior to purchasing it!

Lucretia Scoufos

Jeff was friendly, informational, and THOROUGH. As a first-time home buyer, this whole process is new and stressful to me, especially considering that the market is harder for buyers than it has ever been before. I count myself incredibly lucky to have been sent Jeff's way, as he frequently commented on and explained his observations. He took his time checking the entirety of the house, from top to bottom. Anything you could check with a simple observation, touch, thermometer, or outlet tester, he checked. Furthermore, his PDF report was extensive, containing well over 100 pictures supporting all of his findings. I'll be using him exclusively for the entirety of my search in Longview, and I'll also gladly recommend him to anyone I meet in Longview who needs the services of a home inspector.

Charles Helf

Jeff did a very thorough job inspecting the home and sharing the critical and non critical issues we appreciated knowing about. His report will be very detailed. Everything on the report was backed up by photos of the issues. He spent 6 plus hours just on the inspection alone. Then had to put out a detailed report after that and have it ready by the next day.
