Septic Tank Inspections


Avalanche Septic Services has PSMA-trained employees to perform septic inspections.  These inspections are very important when purchasing or selling a home.  Regulations are becoming more stringent every year, and the Department of Environmental Protection for the State of Pennsylvania will not tolerate malfunctions of on-site septic systems.  With the rising costs of materials and fuel, repairing and replacing these systems is becoming more and more costly.  If you are planning on purchasing a home in the state of Pennsylvania, and you are not planning on using a qualified and certified septic specialist to evaluate and inspect the existing on-site septic system, you could be purchasing a $15,000 to $20,000 repair bill, along with the price of your home.

A PSMA certified inspection is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your system is functioning properly.  If a home is vacant for a period of time, the only way to tell if the system is functioning is to perform a hydraulic load test.  We perform hydraulic load tests in a very non-invasive way.  We are constantly developing proprietary techniques to implement these non-invasive methods.
