Functional Septic Inspections in Rhode Island

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has Rhode Island Functional Inspection appointments at client properties today in Portsmouth, Middletown, Little Compton, Tiverton, and Jamestown, RI.

“Approximately 150,000 Rhode Island households, or one third of the state’s population, use some form of septic system for sewage disposal.   Rhode Island’s septic systems discharge some seven billion gallons of wastewater into the ground each year.

When used properly, septic systems function very well.   If mismanaged, however, these systems will fail, creating conditions that may threaten human health and the environment.  Untreated effluent from malfunctioning septic systems may reveal itself by sight and smell, when a system backs up, or it may quietly percolate through the soil into the groundwater and adjacent water bodies.

Failed systems have been associated with many serious problems.  Outbreaks of diseases, such as hepatitis, dysentery, and gastroenteritis, may result from unmitigated wastewater pathogens.  Untreated effluent can accelerate the eutrophication process of nearby waterbodies, lowering oxygen levels and suffocating aquatic life.  From an economic point of view, septic system repair bills can be staggering.  Yet, many of us live with and use septic systems, giving little or no thought for their existence…until they fail.

Inspection and maintenance is the key to ensuring that septic systems function properly.”

As stated in the Rhode Island Handbook for Inspection, which was funded by DEM using a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water Act, section 319.

Clearly septic inspections are necessary.  A functional inspection is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household . A 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. These inspections will also be required for the following:

Cesspool/unpermitted systems within 50 feet of storm drain

Cesspools/unpermitted systems within 200 feet of coast

How Long is a Septic Inspection Valid?

emergency services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have Septic Inspections scheduled for customers today in Sharon, Mansfield, Norton, Franklin, Foxboro, and Stoughton, MA.

 Septic Inspections, required in connection with a property transfer, generally are good for two years.  If a property is sold more than once in the two-year period, the single inspection is valid for all transfers.  When a system is pumped on an annual basis and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for three years.

 Therefore, if you are selling a property with a septic system, it is advisable to have your septic inspection done as early in the process as you can.  There is no benefit to delay, because it will be valid for 2 years, and if the inspection does reveal an issue, you will have more time to rectify the problem.  If your septic system passes, that is just one more positive to use when advertising your property.  If you need to schedule a septic inspection or if you have any questions please do contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit www.allclearseptic.com
