What is a septic dye load test? The septic dye test uses a fluorescent dye solution to visually identify a problem with the septic system. The dye is flushed down a toilet that is (presumably) connected to the septic system being tested. The amount of dye used is determined by the size of the septic tank. Then water is run into the system with a faucet (also presumably connected to the septic system) in order to flush the dye into the septic tank, and then into the absorption (leach) field. Again, the volume of water introduced to the system is determined by the size of the tank serving the septic system. The objective is to flood the absorption area with water containing the dye solution. A home inspector will use a formula which takes into account the size of the tank and the length of the absorption field to determine how much water to run into the system.
Water testing: Prices vary depending on the water test that is needed.
