I have never inspected a leach pond although I have done a few dye tests on standard septic systems with a leach feild. I have a home Inspection with a leach pond I have to inspect monday. I told the customer I will look into how to inspect the pond.
The following is my understanding of the system. There is a traditional septic tank (1000 gallon?) but from there the effluent flows to a chlorination tank (located next to a pond) and after chlorination, the effluent enters the pond.
How would you test this kind of system to see if it working correctly. I am assuming a dye test would tell me if there is a leak in the system and if the discharge makes it to the pond. Although I don’t know if all the cat-tail will turn red from the dye. Any Suggestions Ideas? please educate me.
