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. Iowa law requires an inspection to be completed, but there are some circumstances that it either can be delayed- or all together waived with the proper paperwork and circumstances. If your septic system fails the inspection, he can also consult (and repair as needed) how to make your septic system compliant OFTEN TIMES WITHOUT NEEDING to replace the entire septic, or causing problems with closing with the buyer.
Iowa law requires four items for an Inspection- without all four you may have a legal action case.
1-DNR two page form
2- Written narrative report
4- A properly calculated load test
Currently(2021) about 71 percent of inspections do not have all four of these items! Rest assured, you will have a proper inspection completed by me!
Let me help you save money by finding your septic system!
$449* - Septic Inspection with Narrative and photo Report
*IowaOne call 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 but customer may still need to seed grass 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 DNR approved pumper and coordinate. (additional fee for pumping)
$59 - Locate all known buried lines ( power drops, LP, satellite, dog fence)
$199 - Video Inspection of Pipes- Troubleshoot problems
*Do you have sewer smell issues? Do you have concerns if your septic system is working properly? We can checkout the inside of the drain pipes that are accessible to ensure the proper pipe grade or check for other issues.
$149* - Septic Inspection Only (No Digging)
This choice is for contractors who have a primary and secondary treatment system exposed. If you are a home owner please do not select this without talking to me. This appointment requires that necessary components are exposed prior to Iowa TOT arriving. Schedules are made with this in mind, so please be aware additional time will be billed @$20 per 1/4 hour increments if any labor is required to complete. If after arrival and we find we do not have time to complete you agree that Iowa TOT will automatically reschedule to the correct job level and customer will be charged a $99 evaluation fee.)
$750- - Expert Opinion- Need help in court? Did your Septic system fail after buying property. Let me show your attorney what other inspectors are missing.

Providing trustworthy and reliable service is of utmost importance to me. I understand how important a properly functioning septic system is for your home or business. I have been installing, repairing and performing TOT inspections on septic systems for the past 24 years in the Delaware, Dubuque, Jackson, Clayton, and Linn Counties."
Time of Transfer Inspections - It's the Law
Effective July 1st, 2009, every building sold in Iowa served by a septic system must have a Time of Transfer inspection prior to the sale and deed transfer of that building. The Iowa Time of Transfer inspections ensure the septic system is functioning properly and not creating a health or environmental hazard.
What Happens During an Inspection?
Every element of your septic system is reviewed by our certified inspector. A detailed report is provided to you, the County Environmental Health staff and the DNR upon completion. The County Environmental Health staff determines upon inspection whether or not your septic system passes or fails. If it is determined that your system does not pass, A1 Wastewater Solutions can provide a review of what upgrades need to be done in order to bring your system up to current code.
