Septic System Inspection Video

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Here is an example of what a video of a septic inspection for a real estate transaction where a video is required.  This buyer called us to inspect this system and didn’t know where the components were, and this house was Bank Owned.

This inspection cost this buyer $135.00, “Cowlitz County” rate.  No additional charges to find the tank, nor dig it out.  Although, this lid was super duper heavy, and I required the homeowner’s assistance to get that lid off.

Thanks for reading and watching,



Septic tank cleaning

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Below are two video’s of a septic tank that went 25 years before septic pumping maintenance.  When a tank is completely full of solids, and that’s about 200 cubic feet of NOT mud, it’s extremely difficult to remove.  And expensive.  A septic pumping should take about 20 minutes.

A neglected system, such as this one, takes about 3 hours.  And a lot of back breaking work, and we have to add a lot of water.  Our trucks cannot haul solids by themselves.  The trucks need water to carry the solids to our trucks.  It’s hard on our trucks as well.  That is why it is so expensive.  Plus we have to repair any damage done to the drainfields.
