Septic Tank & System Inspection Ottawa, Ontario

Septic inspections are beyond the scope of most home inspections. We can give you advice as to the condition of the soils and septic systems in most Ottawa areas and what you can expect (especially pertaining to costs) if you find problems, or if the system is expected to keep working for many more years.

The Report

The report will include full details about the soundness of the septic system and will include a drawing of the location of the system. The septic inspection report summary includes recommended repairs and best practices that will extend the life of the assessed septic system.

Probe Testing

The septic inspection will locate the “key” elements of the system (septic tanks and leaching fields) and determine if they are experiencing hydraulic distress (meaning the septic tank and fields are flooded).

Evaluate pipes, excavate suspicious areas

Every aspect of the system, tanks, weeping field pipes and distribution box are examined,as well as wet areas in the leaching field or adjacent areas.

When combined with a home inspection, the septic inspection is done by a team in order to reduce total inspection time.  There is also a $150 reduction in price if both inspections are completed by this company at the same time.


We boldly go where few men dare go!

Septic Tank Inspection Cost

Septic tank inspection is a crucial aspect of maintaining your septic systems in Ottawa. An improperly functioning system can lead to foul odour, pooling water and sewage backup. This can be detrimental to the overall health of your family.

Money spent on sub-optimal inspection is money wasted. This is because if the service providers miss an aspect that requires care, you are left to face the dreaded consequences. So what’s the use of hiring them in the first place? It may even cause more damage as you will not feel the need to check the system. This way, an average septic tank inspection can cost you more!
