Property Sale Well Water and Septic Inspection Services in MD, VA, WV.

Tri-County Pumps offers full real estate septic and well inspections, yield testing, and all necessary water tests before you sell your property in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia

A Well Yield Test is a timed test to determine how many gallons per minute a well system can produce. During a Well Yield Test, water will run from the pressure tank in 15-minute intervals for the duration of the test. And the last 5-gallon reading is determined to be the “well flow” or “yield” for that well.

We also test for new well use and occupancy permits. These include radon testing, radium testing, lead, and all other water tests. Our experienced technician performs and completes repairs on all well and septic-related issues, including regular maintenance and annual testing. Full water treatment systems are also available to address any water concerns.

Septic Tank Inspections for Real Estate Transfers

Schedule a Septic Inspection Today in Frederick, Washington & Montgomery Counties and surrounding areas. Regular inspections will determine if your septic system is in proper working order.

Regularly scheduled maintenance and inspection can significantly improve the life of your septic wastewater system. On the other hand, delaying it can cause failure in the septic system, which will eventually make repairs and replacements more expensive. Also, a failing septic system can significantly lower your property value and pose a legal liability.

At Tri-County Pumps, our trained professionals will complete a routine inspection of the entire septic system. If you aren’t familiar with your system’s layout, our inspector will first locate the septic system and its components. After that, the inspector will uncover the tank’s cover, inspect ports, and check connections to ensure that your household plumbing is working properly.

The inspector will verify how full the tank is and measure the levels of scum and sludge in your tank. This will give you a more accurate idea of how often it should be pumped. In the end, the inspector will check the condition of the baffles or tees, the walls of the tank for cracks, and other parts of the system.

Regular inspections can reveal problems before they become serious. Our skilled professionals have the experience and knowledge to identify any remote signs of septic system failure. Our Tri-County Septic technicians will check out the drain field for any signs of failure. We will also thoroughly check for any pooling water or muddy soil around your septic system or in your basement.

Finally, we will ask you questions related to your septic performance and whether your toilet or sink backs up when you flush or do laundry. You might also notice strips of bright green grass over the drain field, which can also be indicative of septic system failure.

It is very important to keep a detailed record of all inspections, cleaning, permits, repairs, and any other maintenance to your system, along with a sketch of where your septic system is located. Having this information for future service visits can save you both time and money.


Tri-County is the team to turn to when seeking the best in plumbing services, repair, and installation. We respond quickly and commit ourselves to getting the job done right every time.
