Septic Tank Inspection
Septic tank and leach field repairs can cost thousands of dollars and often go unforeseen. Yet, when the system finally stops working, repairs must be done immediately, no matter what time of year it is. And if the system is leaking, you could be contaminating the surrounding landscape and any well water systems nearby. Don’t go cheap by skipping this important step.
Our Inspection Method
Perkins Home Services will inspect the septic tank and distribution box, plus the leach field, and all piping in between. We will open the tank, check sludge levels and flow, and using the latest camera technology, will run a pipe camera to the leach field to ensure that there are no flow blockages or leaks. Having this done will minimize your chances of having expensive and unpleasant problems after you buy.
With the latest technology, our septic camera can extend 100 feet to get an inside look of the size and condition of water pipes and septic tanks. When purchasing a home, it's important to know if your septic tank is large enough for the home and your needs. Our camera can also be used when issues arise but a standard plumbing inspection isn't enough to figure out the issue.
In this video, we discover several areas where the sewer line has cracked, allowing roots and soil to enter. Because of our camera, the client could clearly see where the issues lie and can share that information with their contractor so they know exactly where to go and what needs to be done.
Our Customer's Opinion
I hired Mr. Perkins in 2012 to inspect a home my wife and I were very interested in buying. After our home inspection I felt very confident that the home we were emotionally attached to was also in sound shape and there would be no "surprises" after we purchased it. His expertise and experience really boils down to one thing if you are a potential buyer- peace of mind. I highly recommend Mr. Perkins.
We just wanted to thank you for the comprehensive inspection report. Eric was very nice, extremely professional and thorough, and explained everything he found so we could understand exactly what we were dealing with and what needed to be done, if anything. Please thank him again for us for his great work and attention to detail!
From our initial phone call to delivery of the final inspection reports, Perkins Home Services was a complete delight. Professional, prompt, thorough, and accommodating. We even learned a thing or two from the general home inspector, in addition to the required information. We're satisfied and smarter!
Scott and John who inspected our septic system have completed their work at our home in Deer Isle, Maine. We wish to complement their professionalism, courtesy and willingness to respond to our questions. They were very informative. You sent a very good team and we appreciate it. Thanks for your help too in explaining the process and arranging our appointment.
I just wanted to say thank you and how incredibly happy we were with everyone. Scott & John were beyond friendly and answered any and all questions we had! We hope to recommend you to anyone that is looking for the same service in the future.
Just wanted to say I was pleased with your Septic Check on the Blackwood Rd, Property. But saddened that I was hoping to buy it without incident. Nice to be forewarned of future problems. Thank you. I would recommend you to others.
It has been a pleasure dealing with all at Perkins. Very professional and knowledgeable. Little wonder that you are highly recommended by every realtor that we have met.
This is a very professional, thorough company. Their excellent work takes much of the worry out of buying a new home.
Scott came and inspected a home today I am interested in buying and he was great! I just wanted to say thank you for being so flexible and available. Scott was great about explaining everything to me in depth and answering all my questions. Thank you again!
Many thanks to you and the Perkins team for the great work on inspecting the home I plan to purchase. Your workers (both those who answer the phone and send out reports and those who do the hands-on inspecting of house, water, and septic) are all wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable, efficient- and you came so quickly when I needed you! I especially liked it that I could observe the inspections and ask questions. I learned a lot about the place I will soon call home!
