Hiring a certified inspector is important as the septic system is one of the most important parts of a home. Septic Systems can be the most expensive part of a house to replace. If the septic system fails, contamination can occur. The homeowner can face a lawsuit if leaks from the septic system and flows into the drinking well or the environment . The septic system is the only part of the house where the homeowner can be sued by someone off the property.

A SEPTIC SYSTEM HAS FOUR MAJOR COMPONENTS:
1. A house sewer line carries the waste to the septic tank.
2. A septic tank prepares the waste material for disposal
into the leaching system
3. A liquid distribution “D” box may be used to distribute the effluent
uniformly through the leaching system.
4. A leaching system which may consist of a drain field, trenches, leaching pits, beds or galleries, which help purify the effluent, by filtration through the soil.
