Non Required Septic and well inspection (“Buyer” Inspection)

A septic and / or well inspection may not be required but should be done. If the septic fails it is something that needs to be fixed right away.

The water that comes from the well needs to be tested to make sure of the nitrate concentration is below the EPA allowable standard and also that there is no bacteria growing in the well.
