-Septic Inspection-


The Inspection:

Animas Septic Inspection is your premier provider for property transfer inspections. I perform accurate and unbiased inspections of underground septic inspections. Your inspection will include:

  • Work performed by a certified septic inspection specialist.

  • Digital cameras designed specifically for septic inspections.

  • Digital location equipment to find buried septic systems without the need to excavate.

  • Full site visit to determine location and condition of all septic system components.

  • Research of available system permit records with applicable County and Health Departments.

  • Provide a scale drawing and written report to the health department and property owner.

  • All findings sent directly to property owner and Health Department.



An inspection only company:

A major concern for many home buyers and sellers arise from septic inspection companies that repair the septic systems they test. This presents a conflict of interest. Animas Septic Inspection does not repair or install septic systems and has no financial interest in the septic inspection findings.
