Bob will then locate and steak out the tank and find the exit cover (if possible). If not, he will open the center cover to inspect the tank internals for the proper water level. He will also inspect both baffles, check the tank sludge, grease and the health of the water. I’ll recommend pumping the tank if needed.
Next, Bob will size the tank for how many gallons it is and recommend risers if needed. Then, he will locate the EDA and dig 1-3 holes to see where the water level is in the field. If the first hole has water, he will dig to the bottom of the EDA and let the buyer know where it is in its life expectancy. This will be based on age and house conditions (empty/occupied). Then Bob will rate the EDA in good, fair, poor or failed condition and make any recommendations if needed.
