Selling On Septic

Depending on what county you are located in the health department requires certain steps in order to close your home. We are experts on the home sale process and can work with your realtor to make sure our home closes on time. 

Pierce County Home Sale Process

Your system must be pumped out and inspected in order to close on your home. The system must be serviced by a certified O&M firm. During an inspection we complete an in depth evaluation of the drain field, tank and all of the septic components.


Next the inspection report submitted to the health department.

If you are in need a repair, the report is filed but the repair will need to be done to move forward with the home sale. A follow up report is then completed once the repair is done.


There are no deficiencies allowed to be transferred to the new homeowner. Once the report states your system is in working order your ready to file the RSS.


The RSS is also required for a home sale. Once the RSS is summitted with the health department they add you onto their schedule to come out and provide their own inspection to make sure everything has been done prior to the transfer of the new homeowners. 

What information do we need when you call?

*your closing date, if you're on city water or a well, how many people live in your home or if its vacant and how long, your realtor and their information, if you have a garbage disposal, and contact information for the RSS to be sent to you.
