Septic Inspection/ADEQ Certification

Although all septic systems require inspection from time to time, the one time it’s mandatory (in Arizona, anyway) is when a property is changing hands. Whether you’re the buyer or seller, it’s important to determine who will be scheduling the inspection and when. Having an inspection well in advance of closing allows time for any pumping, repairs or replacements that need to take place.

Not only does Paradise Septic offer comprehensive, camera-assisted inspections that adhere to all ADEQ (Arizona Department of Environmental Quality) standards, but we can usually be there within 48 hours of scheduling. And because you have enough to worry about, Paradise Septic files all necessary paperwork with not only the ADEQ, but also with your title company if you choose to pay for the inspection via escrow.

And if the inspection uncovers problems, you can trust Paradise Septic to take care of every possible scenario, from clogged tanks to baffle wall deterioration to drain field failure. Our expert technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to repair, maintain and replace any and every part of any variety septic system.

What Are People Saying About Paradise Septic?


I was able to use these guys through a home warranty to do service (pumping my septic tank). They contacted me quickly and scheduled service. 

When on site Tom was able to help discuss some items regarding the septic and went above and beyond for explanation and discussion on how best to keep up the septic tank.

If you need someone with prompt, courteous service this is a great business.

  Kevin H., Surprise, AZ

As a new home owner, I know nothing about septic tanks. Mike was courteous and helpful, informing me of the various avenues to keep up with the septic "health" so to speak, to prevent any further issues.

It makes me comfortable that I can trust and rely on a company who can help me fix my problem and make sure I stay on top of the system. With so much going on with the new house it's nice to know they do not care about coming back and gouging money out of me, but rather help me make sure I keep my costs down. When I need it pumped or if I fail to keep up,I will be calling this company again.

 Brittani J., Peoria, AZ

I'm a realtor in Paradise Valley and rely on septic company inspections and certification to transfer properties.

A recent inspection uncovered significant issues with flow of septic which resulted in fairly extensive repairs. All of this was uncovered just before Christmas and with a very short time line to close.

Bob at Paradise Valley Septic is a real expert who personally worked tirelessly (until late Christmas Eve) to assure that my clients were taken care of and that all repairs were done to the highest standard.

His employee Aldo was also outstanding. Hard working, courteous and professional. I highly recommend these guys, and do so with no hesitation 

– Don O., Scottsdale, AZ

I had my Septic serviced in October by Tom and he was exceptionally knowledgeable and gave helpful suggestions about my system to avoid any potential backups.

Tom truly cares about his customers and Kathy in the office was very pleasant and helpful with pricing. It was my first time using their service on a referral from my neighbor.

I will now only use and recommend Paradise Valley Septic. Their customer service definitely surpasses any septic company I have used in the past and they truly deserve a 5 star rating!

If I’m Not Buying or Selling, How Do I Know When I Need a Septic System Inspection?

As with pumping, if you don’t remember the last time you’ve had an inspection or it’s been over a year, it’s time to call Paradise Septic and schedule one. Not only do inspections let you know when pumping is necessary, but they also ensure that all parts of your septic system are working efficiently and safely.

Other indications it might be time for an inspection include unusual odors around toilets or drains, sluggish or weak flushing and odors, wet spots or lush plant growth over leach field. You can trust Paradise Septic to assess the situation accurately and provide you with timely, effective solutions and the best customer service in Arizona.
