Hancock Home Inspections makes every effort to perform it's Septic Evaluations in accordance with PSMA / NOF (National Onsite Foundation) guidelines. A Hancock Home Inspection's Septic Evaluation goes well beyond a dye test only evaluation that many home inspection companies offer. HHI's evaluations include a comprehensive review of the septic tank to include checking solid levels, inspection of the baffles, and overall physical condition. It will also include a review of the absorption area. HHI's fees are based on the septic tank being made accessible by others prior to our arrival. Follow up evaluations, locating, and uncovering will require additional fees.
Many home inspection companies offer only a dye test as a means of evaluating the septic system. A dye test only is not a proper means of evaluating an on-lot system. Did you know that a system may pass a dye test, but actually be in need of replacement? For additional information check out our Article Library - Septic Evaluations - Dye Test vs Full Evaluation
