Why Do I Need An Inspection?
Official Operation Status
Inspections will confirm whether or not your septic system is operating properly. Creech's Plumbing is licensed by the North Carolina Onsite Wastewater Contractor Inspection Certiication Board (NCOWCICB). This board created the licensing process with specific requirements to protect and ensure the correct septic inspection process for all inspections. Not all septic pumpers are licensed to perform septic inspections, the old "everything looks good" when pumping a septic tank no longer meets requirements.
Protect The Environment
If your septic system is not working properly it will pollute your environment. More than four billion gallons of wastewater are dispersed below the ground’s surface every day. Ground water contaminated by poorly or untreated household wastewater poses dangers to drinking water and to the environment. Malfunctioning septic systems release bacteria, viruses, and chemicals toxic to local waterways. When these pollutants are released into the ground, they eventually enter streams, rivers, lakes, and more, harming local ecosystems by killing native plants, fish, and shellfish.
