In keeping up with the maintenance of your septic tank, it’s also advisable to have it inspected from time to time by a professional. Regular inspections ensure that your tank is up and running in the prime condition, is cleaned and functioning like normal, and is up to code standard in terms of health and safety. Our septic tank pros come prepared with what to look for when inspecting your septic system and ensure that the inspection is done completely and thoroughly.
How Septic Tanks Work
If you have a septic tank but you’re not really sure how it works, the inspection could be the best time to ask questions. Our septic pros will walk you through all the steps that septic systems take in order to adequately filter your home’s waste and dispose of it appropriately without causing further bacteria hazards or messes. During inspection, we’ll show you the vital parts of the septic system and how they should be functioning together as a whole. This way, when we’re not around, you know what to check for when your septic tank is acting faulty or not performing well.
Septic Tank Inspection
The tank inspection itself can be done rather quickly and looks at the tank when it’s in use, the filter, and any other pipes and attachments that connect the system to your home. Septic tanks can be viewed from the ground level by a professional septic pro who loosens the tops of the tank to view its water levels, interiors, and exteriors. During the inspection, our septic pros will offer some advice on maintenance and keeping your tank clean and what to expect if your tank is on its last leg, whether or not it should be repaired, and if you would benefit from a new system altogether.
When an inspection is done, ensuring that your septic tank is up to code standard is the most important step. This is done to promote your health and safety and when a septic system is not able to provide safety and security while in use, it can do more harm than good. Therefore, we analyze the existing condition of your system and check all filters and containment areas for clogs, debris buildup, and scrum. We also check for the functionality and integrity of the tank itself to note if there is any rust of exterior damages to note that could become dangerous.
The costs of the inspection are initially higher on the first time inspection, with the annual rates lowering year after year, the more inspections you get. We recommend having an inspection at least once a year for continued safety. Before the inspection begins, we often disclose our pricing and costs for the inspection to our clients so you know what to expect for long-term use of your septic system. If you have a budget in mind that you’d feel more comfortable us working with, just let us know and we’ll see how we can accommodate. We also help you to install a new septic system.
