In the process of Due Diligence, and notice none of the septic tanks have access covers on the surface. The Seller says that it costs just the same to have them pumped out as not. The plumber and Cameraman advise against it as we’re in Upstate NY where the ground freezes regularly and they say they can’t camera the lines unless they have such an access cover.
I’m pushing for covers from the sellers to see what’s going on; they’ve had to replace three of the tanks in the past five years. It’s a small 20 TOH park with some RVs on the side, so the threat of short-term replacing a system sinks the deal.
Any experience? And how often do you chaps pump out your septic tanks?
