Septic System Inspections

Septic Inspections in Connecticut

At Suburban Sanitation, we perform hundreds of inspections each year. We provide a report that is formatted for real estate transactions. 

Our technicians are efficient and thorough, providing you with the necessary information to make an informed purchasing decision.

Included with our septic system inspection:

  1. We check public records for septic drawing and/or information pertaining to the age and location of the existing septic system.
  2. We locate, uncover and access the tank(s)
  3. Inspect the condition of the septic tank/baffles/tees for cracks, deterioration, or missing components.
  4. Determine if the access covers to the septic tank meet the State of Connecticut health code requirements of not exceeding 12” below grade.
  5. Inspect the condition of the septic tank for structural soundness.
  6. Determine liquid levels and sludge depth.
  7. Camera the inlet and outlet pipes, if possible.
  8.  Introduce 150 gallons of environmentally friendly dyed water into the septic system.
  9. Monitor the liquid level reaction within the septic tank.
  10. Probe and inspect absorption area to determine location and inspect for excessive moisture, effluent, and/or odor.
  11. A 3-4 page typed report will be submitted (via email or fax) within 1-2 business days, unless otherwise specified.

We prefer that the septic tank not be cleaned prior to the inspection so that we may monitor the system as it normally functions; the septic tank may be cleaned after the inspection is completed. If problems are noted during the septic inspection, photos are taken to document the problem and put on file. We respect the privacy of all our clients; all information is strictly confidential to the person(s) requesting the inspection.
