DO NOT MAKE A 20K (NEW SEPTIC REPLACEMENT) MISTAKE BY SELECTING THE CHEAPEST INSPECTOR YOU CAN FIND- SOME INSPECTORS ARE FAILING SEPTIC SYSTEMS SO THEY CAN INSTALL A NEW ONE. I FIND AND FIX WHAT YOU HAVE. Please keep reading below. ( Iowa inspection code 567 chapter 69)
State Certified Inspector
A1 Wastewater Solutions owner, Corey Groth, is a state certified inspector that can perform a Iowa Time of Transfer inspection when selling your home. If your septic system does not meet the inspection FAD criteria, he can also consult (and repair as needed) how to make your septic system compliant OFTEN TIMES WITHOUT NEEDING to replace the entire septic. (Per county Ordinance)
Iowa law requires at least 4 items for an Inspection- without all four someone may have a legal action case against you -sometimes years later.
1- DNR 542 form
2- Written narrative report
4- A properly calculated load test from the sites water supply and probing.
We are using the NEW IDNR digital database for inspections, your report is guaranteed to be submitted. (March 2022)+
Currently most inspections do not have all four of these items! Rest assured, you will have a proper inspection completed by me! Don't end up in court over litigation, no one wants to be there.
Let me help you save money by finding your septic system!
$449* - Iowa Certified Septic Inspection- with Narrative/photo Report
*IowaOne call IS CONTRACTED BY ME AND will locate main utility lines coming into home ( power, natural gas, phone, cable) but All private utilities (dog fence, detached building power-water drops, LP, power) must be marked prior to inspections. If private utilities are not marked properly and a utility line is hit during the inspection/digging process additional costs will be incurred. Will restore landscaping to original condition to the best of our ability or spread grass seed on some sites. Septic tanks are required to be pumped or cleaned out every 3 years, if this is not the case I can recommend a IDNR approved pumper and coordinate. (additional fee for pumping). Price reflects a $50 gift card for a google review.
