Job Site Preparation Checklists :: Residential Septic Video Inspection

Below is a list of things the seller and sellers agent for the property I am to be investigating need to confirm and have readily accessible for our testing. I prefer to have one-on-one conversation with client to discuss my services and fees to ensure there is no confusion of what service I will be providing with the associated fee. I am trying to ensure the client is getting the service they are asking for. I can get background information from them to ensure I am better prepared to fulfill their needs and what the site conditions are before arriving on location.

I will need to know how deep the outlet pipe in the tank is in order to determine if I can push the camera to the septic field. This works best if the pipe is less than one foot below the top of the ground so I can reach with the camera head by hand to install it into the outlet pipe.

When conducting a Color Camera Video Inspection of the Septic Line from the House to the Sewer Main or Septic Tank:

  • access to cleanout plug required, all luggage storage boxes need to be removed from area of cleanout plug
     
  •  a minimum three inch diameter cleanout access plug needs to be made available for the camera
     
  •  the homeowner will need to verify the cleanout plug can be removed, some older homes have old brass or metal cleanout plugs that are corroded and cannot be removed without the aid of a plumber, in this case the homeowner or client with sellers permission will need to hire a plumber to remove the cleanout plug for our camera; the homeowner or client with the sellers permission will need to hire a plumber to reinstall the cleanout plug or do the work themselves and take responsibility for the plumbing
     
  • some homes have the cleanout in the floor hidden under carpets, therefore the carpet will need to be pulled up and removed by the seller so access to the cleanout access plug can be available for removal
     
  • some homes have the cleanout plug behind finished gyproc walls so the homeowner will have to cut through the walls so access to the cleanout access plug can be available for removal and the gyproc and any panels over the cover unscrewed and removed by the homeowner
     
  • if there is no cleanout plug available, the homeowner or client with sellers permission will need to hire a plumber to remove the toilet to allow for access through the toilet wastewater line and the homeowner will need to hire a plumber to reinstall the toilet or do the work themselves and take responsibility for the plumbing
