Septic & Well
Septic inspections play a crucial role in keeping you and every other person living on your property healthy and safe. These inspections aren’t costly or time-consuming and therefore, should be regularly scheduled. Unfortunately, most homeowners completely forget about their septic tanks until something goes wrong.
How It Works
There are two types of septic inspections:
Visual Inspections – usually done by the home inspector when selling or buying a house and it includes asking questions about the property and the house, when was the last inspection, and so on. The inspector then moves on with checking the water pressure in the house by running the water and flushing all the toilets in the house. The inspector will also check for cesspools, standing water, and the drain field. This type of inspection is quick and useful but it can’t really tell what’s going on with your septic tank or if it’s healthy and safe.
Full Inspections – almost the same as visual inspection, only it includes a much more detailed inspection. This is done by professionals and skilled experts who have the proper equipment and tools for the job. It’s when inspectors check the water level in your septic tank to determine if the water is draining properly. They will also perform a couple of tests to see if everything is in order before they move on with the pumping.
It’s safe to say that you need regular septic tank inspections as these do not only save your money but keep you and your family as well as your property healthy and safe. Inspecting and pumping are necessary to ensure that your tank is in satisfactory working order as well as healthy. Doing regular inspections is much cheaper than having to replace or repair your septic tank. Plus, this will be a good investment in the long run without any doubt.
Septic and Well
A septic system receives, treats and disposes of unwanted wastewater and solids from a building's plumbing system. Solids are partially broken down into sludge within a septic tank and are separated from effluent (water) and scum (fat, oil and grease).
