At the end of October I’ll be starting a series of interviews with a few people with major knowledge about private wastewater treatment plants (septic systems) for a video. This video will be included with the many other Internachi videos under the NACHI.TV subscription.
My first interviewee started his career with a degree in chemical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines and was trained over the next 25 years in commercial and industrial wastewater treatment consultation by GE. He travels all over the world advising global corporations involved in the energy industry… power companies, oil companies, etc. about wastewater quality, but he’s a local… a down to earth guy who knows a lot about residential systems… all kinds of systems… and is willing to talk specifics about what inspectors can and can’t do to inspect them.
I’ll have a few more interviewees, too…
There’s a lot of misunderstanding and bad information out there about inspecting septic systems. A bad deal, since they can be one of the most expensive systems in the home to replace and most of the components are underground- invisible, so their inspection carries a lot of liability.
Get the straight skinny. Post detailed questions on this thread and I’ll ask them for you.
