To carry out an inspection our ROWP (Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioner) will need property access to locate, expose (dig up), test and evaluate key components that make up the onsite sewerage system. This can take 2-6 hours depending on the condition and complexity of the system. During this time components of the system will be exposed and can be a health or safety hazard. Kids, pets and adults must keep clear of the area until the inspection is completed. When significant holes are dug up, we do our best to reconstruct them so they are visually unnoticeable, however homeowners must be made aware of these potential tripping/ falling hazard areas.
In the form below please provide us with complete & accurate information about your needs & expectations as it helps us determine if the system we are inspecting meets your current and future needs.
Please request all available records from the current owners, from the listing realtor or from your realtor. Important common records are:
Due to the high demand of our Registered Onsite Wastewater Practitioners, cancellation fees apply.

Disclaimer - Terms & Conditions:
A performance inspection indicates the present condition of the private on-site sewerage disposal system. The results of the inspection DO NOT guarantee or warranty future performance of any part of the system including but not limited to:
The inspection report excludes and does not intend to cover components that are inaccessible (by reasonable hand digging) or are otherwise not observable. Reasonable hand digging is defined as 2 feet, which may vary depending on soil conditions (ie. bedrock). System component over 2 feet deep may need to be exposed by excavator or other mechanical equipment. In such cases, permission must be granted by the property owner or listing agent in order for Blackwater to continue. If it is determined during the inspection that there is risk of minor damage to surrounding property or system components, permission must be granted by either the home owner, listing agent or property owner in order for Blackwater staff to continue (ie: previously cracked lid that may break when removed).
Blackwater does not take responsibility for any false or misleading information provided about the system or property by parties involved in the inspection.
