All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has Septic Functional Inspections scheduled today in Coventry, North Kingstown, Exeter, Cranston, Johnston, and Scituate, RI.
As stated in the Rhode Island Handbook for Inspection:
“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.”

Therefore, it is always advisable to have septic systems inspected, especially if you are buying a home with a septic system . A septic functional inspection is used to determine whether a system is adequate to serve the wastewater disposal needs of the household.  The septic 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.   If you require a Functional Inspection or have questions about this, please do contact our office at 508-763-4431 or visit
