Why is it important to have a PSMA Certified Inspector test the septic system?
PSMA is widely recognized as the leading septic system authority in the area. They offer a rigorous training program and require inspectors to pass before they become certified. You can be assured that a PSMA Certified Inspector has received the finest training available in the industry.
I have been told that the septic inspection must be performed by a registered engineer. Is this true?
No, this is not true. The regulation that you may have heard about applies only to home inspectors. It states that a home inspector must be a registered engineer in order to also perform septic inspections. There are no laws or regulations governing other septic inspectors, which is why it is important to make sure that your septic inspector is certified.
