In scheduling these services, the client grants RAINBOW SEPTIC, INC. permission to enter service address for the purpose of conducting these services. Client acknowledges that the inspetion may involve digging/excavation of soils and driving a large heavy truck on the driveway.  Digging involves risks to underground lines (electric/water/cable/sprinkler) and driving on the property involves risks that the property (driveways, trees) could be damaged.  Rainbow Septic will use ordinary care to avoid causing damage but it is possible that damage will occur.  Client agrees to mark or disclose all underground line and any condition of the driveway that makes it unsuitable to withstand the weight and size of a heavy truck.  By scheduling the services, the client agrees to release Rainbow Septic from any claims arising from damage to unmarked underground lines and driveway.
