Title 5 Inspection

What is Involved in a Title 5 Inspection?

Title 5 Inspection All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that since 1995, the State of Massachusetts has required homeowners to have their private sewage treatment system checked thoroughly by a State-Certified Title 5 Inspector when properties are sold, divided or combined, when there is a change in use, or an expansion of a facility, or when MassDEP or the local Board of Health requires an inspection. There are  a few other instances when a Title 5 Inspection is required and for more information contact your local Board of Health.

 

Here is what you can expect from an official Title 5 Inspection – the inspector will:

 

  • conduct an interview with the property owner
  • research the paperwork for your property at your city’s Board of Health Department
  • survey the general size of the building or list a summary of the number of bedrooms
  • inspects the connection from the house/building to the system
  • inspects the inlet/outlet of the septic tank
  • examines the integrity of the tank
  • measures the liquid/contents of the tank
  • examines the integrity of the distribution box
  • measures the liquid/contents of the distribution box
  • checks the soil absorption system (SAS) condition
  • checks the relation of the system’s water table to the SAS
  • examines the integrity of the pipes using a special “sewer cam” (All Clear Septic and Wastewater Service’s specialty service, not required by the state)
  • provides an official 17-page document to the local approving authority and the owner, including all findings and a detailed sketch of the system
