Blakely Property Services Inc. (BPS) specializes in septic system assessments, well/water system assessments and septic designs.  If you are moving into a rural neighbourhood, these homes are most likely serviced by a well for drinking water and an on-site septic system to treat the sewage. 


A malfunctioning septic system or drinking water system can be expensive to repair/replace and pose a significant health risk to your family and neighbours.  Since problems with these on site services may be hidden, it is extremely important to have a qualified professional carry out a detailed inspection of both the septic and water system prior to purchasing a home.  BPS does not sell or install septic systems or water treatment equipment, so you will be assured of an unbiased opinion.  A full walk-through will be provided on-site to ensure you understand how these systems work and how to properly use and maintain your private services, which can save you money in the long run. 


If you require a septic system design, it is very important to select the proper type of system, since the installation of the system may dramatically impact the lot grading and landscaping.  BPS will discuss the various design options with you to ensure the type of septic system selected the most economical and best suited to the property.
