Septic Tank inspection

Did you know... If you're going to clean it, you might as well inspect it??

Septic system inspections will include both the septic tank and drain field. During the inspection process the tank will be pumped-out so that a septic system technician can inspect the tank itself. During the tank inspection the technician will be able to identify any areas of concern such as cracks or clogs. The drain field connections will also be checked for any degradation from wear and tear, tree root growth, etc. After the inspection is complete you will be able to review a report that will detail the findings of the inspection.

So you might be wondering...

When is the right time to get a septic tank inspection?


1 - You will want to schedule a septic tank inspection and pump if you are new to a property and have never seen the condition of your current tank system. Read our blog on "Things To Look Out For When Buying A  Home With A Septic Tank."

2 - You have septic system issues that do not seem related directly to the drain field area of your system and need further inspection on the actual connections to your household plumbing system.
