I’m looking to add septic and well inspections. I can’t seem to find the necessary training. Where can I get it?
Someone suggested Joe Farsetta but I called and e-mailed him many times over two months and I can’t make it happen. Others have explained the high liability involved in septic inspections, but my competition is doing it so I feel I need to offer the same services.
Pennsylvania as a whole does not have regulations for well inspections. There are several counties though that have their own guidlines and must be tested by a licensed well driller. Check into the area that you will be working and see what the city and county laws are pertaining to well inspections and sampling.
Excellent information, I just want to add, I’ve heard that ESA ( www.esaassociation.com ) has a small/basic course. BTW, you mention well water, but do you know if there is any Pa state requirements for septic?
