New Septic Systems Template

ah...Is that chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Jack Frost nipping at your nose? No, it's the all new Septic Templates in HomeGauge! The latest update to HomeGauge Software now includes templates for the Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Inspection (OWTS). We have two new templates at no charge for those who perform septic inspections. One is all inclusive for any septic inspection and includes the OWTS for real estate purposes. The second is a template dedicated to OWTS for real estate purposes that uses its own cover page.

Vehicle Wrap

Advertising on your vehicle can get you business! Here's a note we received from a HomeGauge user:

Hey Russell,

About a year ago I got a Ford Transit and decided to have it wrapped (best decision ever). The advertisement has been great ... a real attention getter! I love using HomeGauge so much and I believe it's a plus for my clients so I included it on the wrap.

Thanks, Allan
