Currently, Lentz Septic Tank Service does not offer Septic Inspection Services. We DO, however, perform an evaluation of the septic system as part of our pumping service. Included in the evaluation are notes about any issues that may become a problem down the road, recommendations, and the structural integrity of the tank (i.e. condition of the Sanitary Tee, Effluent Filter, Tank, Lids).
There are different types of inspections, here are more details and contact information:

The Inspector will need the following information in order to perform a proper septic system inspection:
- Permit (from the Health Department) – in Iredell County, click here for the application
- MLS and/or Tax Card (the information contained is required to coincide with the permit).
- In the event that a permit can not be found, the customer may need to pay for locating service.
