Buying a home
When buying a home with an existing wastewater system, many buyers are already keyed into tools such as building and pest reports, but few realise that building reports do not usually include the wastewater system.
For that reason, Coastal Wastewater Specialists offer a pre-purchase inspection service, especially looking at the wastewater system and disposal method/areas, as well as providing condition reports.
Getting a report like this could save your thousands of dollars because removing or replacing a failed system can cost in excess of $15000!
TIP: If the property you are considering does have a treatment plant – ask the agent or seller for a copy of the last service report. ALL treatment plants require periodical scheduled servicing – checking out the service record is a very good starting point in assessing the condition of this vital piece of infrastructure.
