Its something I do when I inspect a home. Then I walk the yard to see if the septic and leach field are ok…and go into the crawlspace to see if the plumbing is leaking…etc.
yesterday I did an inspection and the septic tank on an 1870’s house began to leak water out of its lid (lid was exposed)
water was running out of the lid at a pretty good rate.
apparently the septic had just been pumped two weeks prior.
The seller is now asking why I ran all of the faucets for an hour.
Just checking to see what others thoughts were on this…
