Jay was suggested to us by another industry professional, and how lucky we were to get the recommendation. We are first time home buyers who wanted to get an inspection of the septic system on a foreclosed, bank owned property. When I first spoke to Jay, I immediately knew I was talking to a professional that took pride not only in his own work, but also in the industry. He was well-educated and wasn't trying to sell himself or his business. Jay is not only a septic inspector but also a home inspector with multiple certifications. But most importantly, he was fair and honest. During the conversation, he told me that the camera he normally uses to look inside the pipes was not working and that it would not be fixed by the time we needed to have our inspections completed, He explained to me other ways of testing that would ensure all of aspects of the system were functioning properly. When our conversation ended, I told my husband we found the right guy for the job.
There were some bumps in the road as far as scheduling the date and time for the inspection, but they were OUR fault not his. Jay was extremely accommodating, patient, and reassured us that every and anything we needed inspection wise he ensured would done before our deadline. Not only did we make our deadline but we had a few days to spare!
Inspection time: Jay arrived early on what felt like the hottest and most humid day this summer, ready to work. Jay encouraged us to follow him around as he did the inspection, We asked a million and one questions and he answered all of them in detail.
Jay excavated the tank lid, manually inspected the tank and both ballasts, and stress tested our leach field. He excavated a portion of the main outflow pipe and performed a visual inspection. He recognized that the pipe had "settled and proceeded to tell us what kind of impact that could have for us down the road. Jay determined the location of our distribution box, excavated and inspected it, Additionally, he gave us detailed information regarding the current condition and how to properly perform maintenance in the future.
For the entire 3 1/2 hours, he was thorough, informative, knowledgeable and personable. In short, he was AWESOME and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a job done right."
