Alternative Septic Systems
Alternative septic systems allow homes to be built in areas where centralized sewer service is not provided, and the soils are not suitable for a conventional septic system. Wastewater treatment technology is utilized to protect groundwater and the environment. Components such as floats, pumps and filters must be properly maintained to ensure optimum performance, extend the life of the system, and protect the environment and your investment in your home.
Recommendations and Requirements
Our licensed experts ensure your system is operating according to manufacturer design and regulatory requirements of the Virginia Department of Health. We work with system designers, installers, regulators, and homeowners to share recommendations that ensure smooth system performance. We strongly believe when a homeowner understands their system, it will perform better and is more likely to be trouble-free.
Emergency Alarm Call Service
Certain system components age over time, and eventually need to be replaced. Defective floats, pumps or circuit boards can create an alarm condition if not working properly. Weekend and holiday alarm coverage is provided to customers with Operation & Maintenance contracts as part of our standard coverage. The needs of the homeowner and the safety of the environment are our priority at all times.
Real Estate Inspections
The purchase of a home is often the largest single investment a family makes. We provide inspections of alternative septic systems for real estate transactions. Our inspections ensure the septic system of the home you are purchasing meets regulatory requirements and functions as it was originally designed. Because many buyers are new to alternative septic systems, we are glad to inspect systems with you present and to explain how the system works.
