Septic System Testing

Septic System Testing


While Septic testing is required home owner maintenance...  Most systems are only checked for tank integrity when they are pumped.  By having a conversation  with your pumping company your can find out more details of what they are checking each time they pump your system.  This however is not the compliance certification that is required by most Counties to be completed on the sale of the home.  Septic compliance tests are valid for 3 years unless your property has shoreline (waterfront - riverfront or lakefront) in which is valid for 1-2 years depending on your county.

In selling your home it is a catch 22 situation while you want to know if your septic is going to pass for the sale you also don't want to know if it doesn't pass...  Mainly this is due to the cost of either a new system or the cost of the parts (Drain field, Mound system or Tank.)  However not knowing can cost you $$ once you have a buyer for your property.  Whether the buyer assumes responsibility for the repairs or not most counties require proof of complete work and the seller liability many not end at the close (sale) of the property.   So with that said you are most likely better off having your testing completed before listing your East Central MN home so you have time to address repairs if necessary or provide up front compliance certificate for buyers.
