Why Choose Us For Your Septic System Evaluation

Russell Inspection Services LLC has performed septic system evaluations for many years throughout New Hampshire. As a certified septic system inspector and a certified member of the Granite State Designers and Installers Association (GSDI), we have the experience and training needed to provide you with the most comprehensive septic system evaluation possible. We also utilize every tool possible to provide you the best inspection of your septic system, including sewer cameras and hydraulic load tests (see our method for more details).

A septic system is a critical part of your home as a system – which is why we use the “house as a system” approach. We evaluate, not only the septic tank, but the entire system. From the moment water enters a drain all the way to the leach field we make sure that it all works in harmony.

A septic system is primarily underground and unseen – so many people take it for granted and tend not to notice subtle clues that there is an issue. Often times many home owners don’t realize that there is an issue until there is a sewage backup or some other type of event. So whether you are a home owner, a seller, or a buyer, be sure to contact us to have your septic system inspected so as to protect you, your family, and your investment.

Why Have A Septic System Inspection

NH Septic InspectionsThe State of New Hampshire regulates septic systems and how they are used, repaired, and installed. Under certain circumstances the State will allow a septic system to be repaired, but many times if a septic system goes into failure a complete new system must be designed, installed by a licensed contractor, and approved by the State of New Hampshire according to NH law – and that can become very expensive very quickly. The cost of replacing a septic system in New Hampshire can be in upwards of $15,000-$20,000 . This emphasizes the need to have a proper septic system inspection performed whenever you are buying or selling a home so that you do not end up in a situation having to cover this cost after you have bought a home. Don’t get “stuck” with a large, unexpected expense. Contact us to perform a completer septic system inspection to ensure that you and your investment are protected.

Whether you own a home, selling or looking to purchase, a full evaluation of the septic system should always be a real consideration.

The following photographs are from a three year old New Hampshire septic system inspection. System installed was not what was called out for in the engineers design. Some of the problems I found with this system included, missing filter from treatment tank, sludge build up in D-Box, missing flow diverter resulting in flooding of the EDA in this area.

This is a good example of why every New Hampshire septic system should be inspected by a certified evaluator prior to purchasing a home, no matter what the ag
