A septic system is more than a tank in your backyard. It’s a complex system that manages and handles the sewage and waste water from your home, which is why a septic inspection is so important.
According to the Environment Protection Agency, in the United States, 25% of homes depends on a septic system. Septic systems are like any other type of system in that they can malfunction or break over time. If you are buying a home with a septic system, it is essential to get the system inspected before closing on your home to figure out if the system needs fixing or replacing. If you don’t, you can find yourself with a massive repair bill.
