Cleaning the

If Discount Septic needs to
locate your septic tank lids:

It is the property owner’s
responsibility to know where
your septic tank lids
are located.
If you do not, then we
can help locate them! We can usually locate your tank
using county records as part of the cost.

If your tank can not be located, then
 an “electronic locator”
can be used to find it.
This service costs $250

If Discount Septic needs to
uncover & expose your
septic tank lids:

At Discount Septic we give our clients the opportunity to save $$ by locating & uncovering their lids prior to our arrival.  If all your lids are exposed, then we don’t have to charge you for additional time & labor.

What is the purpose of a septic certification/inspection report?

These reports are needed for the sale of a home, but sometimes the county will require certification/inspection reports for businesses such as day care facilities, restaurants, etc.

Our technicians check the septic system from the inlet pipe to the drain field and document how the system is operating at the time of inspection.  

This report is not a warranty or a guarantee of how the system will perform in the future, but rather a full disclosure to all parties of how the system is operating on the date of inspection.

New requirements effective 1/12/2009 - Public Health- Seattle & King County requires all sellers of properties with onsite sewage systems to have their on-site septic system inspected by a King County licensed On-Site System Maintainer (OSM).  The inspection must be completed and a copy of the report must be given to Public Health before the transfer of title.
Please visit King County’s Board of Health Code section Title 13: On-Site Sewage to view the new requirements at
