Functional Inspections To Provide Septic System Information When Property Is Sold

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have been working with Rhode Island property owners for over 20 years providing septic inspections, septic repairs, septic maintenance including septic pumping and septic cleaning and septic designs. With one third of the state’s households using some form of septic system for sewage disposal there are a lot of septic systems that require attention. If you have never had a property with a septic system the prospect can be daunting but with minimal maintenance and some guidelines a septic system will happily do its job with minimal interference. However if you are purchasing a property with a septic system you do want to ensure that the necessary maintenance has taken place so the system is working correctly because a failing system is a large environmental, economical and logistical problem. Therefore a Functional Inspection was devised which:

‘is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household. The functional inspection is especially intended for use during a property transfer as a means to protect the consumer and identify systems in need of upgrade or repair.” For more information see http://www.dem.ri.gov/pubs/regs/regs/water/isdsbook.pdf

We carry out these inspections for customers who are buying or selling property, both residential and commercial, and need to have an inspection to highlight the condition of a septic system. Today we have functional inspections scheduled in Portsmouth, Little Compton, Middletown, Barrington and Tiverton RI. If you require a septic inspection in Rhode Island or if you have any questions about septic inspections please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

In some towns, for example Portsmouth RI:

“First Maintenance Inspections (FMIs) and pump outs are required for all Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems upon notification by the town. If you receive a letter requiring a FMI and you have had an inspection performed in the previous year, simply file that inspection report with the town – to fulfill this requirement. All FMIs will have to be completed within 60 days of notification.

Alternative/Experimental OWTS will not be required to have FMIs – only proof of a maintenance contract and annual servicing.” For more information see the town website -https://www.portsmouthri.com/419/Wastewater-Management
