It's been a few years, should my septic system be inspected?

Thurston County says that you should have your septic system inspected every 3-5 years. For most systems this is what we recommend as well.

If it's been 5 years or longer, your septic system should probably be inspected. If you're not sure, or are just looking for some general advice about your septic system/septic tank - call us, we are glad to help out. (360) 878-8712.

 

Does my septic tank need to be pumped?

On average tanks tend to go about 3-4 years without needing to be pumped. Sometimes tanks can last longer, especially if you avoid harsh chemicals (like bleach) and have moderate to low use. If you are concerned your tank may need to be pumped soon, call us for an inspection. We will give you an estimate of how much longer your tank can go before requiring a pump. (360) 878-8712

 

I got a letter from Thurston County saying I need an Operational Certificate (Op Cert) for my septic system.

To get an operational certificate you must get an inspection by a licensed specialist and submit a report to Thurston County. We can take care of the inspection and submit the paperwork for you. Shortly after we're done you will get your op-cert in the mail.

The inspection doesn't take long, often less than one hour. Call us today for an appointment! (360) 878-8712. 

 

I'm buying a house, should I get a septic system inspection?

Yes. As of September 1, 2010 Thurston County requires a septic system inspection before all home sales.

But, aside from that we also highly recommend it. You don't want to get stuck with a septic system in need of repair, as this can be very expensive (upwards of $20,000 if things are really bad and the septic is failing). 

KEI does Home Sale Inspections. With this inspection you will get a full report of the septic system to fully know what you are buying - if there are any red flags you will know before you buy your house.

Call us today for your septic system inspection before you buy your house! (360) 878-8712.
