Septic Evaluations: < top >

All septic inspections are conducted by certified inspectors in accordance with state standards.

In ME, our inspectors are certified by The Maine Department of Human Services, Division of Health Engineering (DHE) in their voluntary septic training program.

In NH, we currently are not part of the New Hampshire septic program and are not conducting septic inspections at this time.

In MA, the state requires the seller to have a Title 5 Septic Inspection PRIOR to listing a home. (Omnispect Home Inspection Services does NOT perform Title 5 Inspections on behalf of the seller.) We will perform a septic inspection for the buyer if requested. NOTE: Title 5 inspections are NOT as thorough as our septic inspections. In most cases they never dig inspection pits in the field which is the most important thing to inspect. A septic system could be months away from failure but pass a Title 5 Inspection.

Our Standards of Practice and guidelines for septic inspections:

  • A review of the septic design plans (if provided to us by our client prior to the start of our inspection) to determine the age, design, and location of the system.
  • An inspection of the internal plumbing of the home is completed to insure that all plumbing is properly connected to the system.
  • An inspection of the septic tank is conducted to determine the sludge and grease level, the health of the bacteria, if the baffles are in place, see if there is a filter and to insure that the tank is functioning as designed. This requires some excavation to locate and open the tank exit cover, if possible.
  • The system's leach field (EDA) Effluent Disposal Area is located and an inspection of the field and its perimeter is conducted to determine if it is functioning properly. This involves excavating down to the bottom of the field and inspecting the bed/bio-mat. This will determine the condition of the field, (good, fair, poor, failing)
  • The inspector reports on the status of the system including photos, typical life expectancy of the EDA and any recommendations to help keep the system working properly.

Wood Destroying Insect Inspection: < top >

Our WDI Inspections are performed by a trained and registered pest inspector. The inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of the structure including attics and crawlspaces.

Wood destroying insects include: termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and re-infesting wood boring beetles.

Upon completion of the inspection, the client is given the NPMA-33 Form: Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Report, which may be required for HUD, VA, FHA or private lenders.
