A licensed onsite soil evaluator should not be allowed to design pump components of onsite septic systems. Their training and profession involves evaluating soil to determine long term acceptance rates. Nothing in their education or on the job training involves the engineering skills necessary to specify pumps. As you should know from your business, sizing pumps is far more than on/off and gallons per minute. I doubt that
LOSE's are capable of designing a lawn sprinkler system. I certainly can't support legislation that will allow them to design a system that will impact public health.
