How to Keep Your Septic System in Good Condition
The key to keeping your septic system healthy and in good condition is regular inspections and routine maintenance. According to EPA guidance, septic systems should be professionally inspected at a minimum of every three years. They also recommend that your system be pumped every three to five years. However, depending on the type of septic system you have, the age of your system, and its current condition, you may want to have this done more frequently. Professional septic inspections are an important preventative measure you can take to avoid unexpected repair problems.
Our septic inspections are incredibly thorough and include:
- A thorough visual inspection of your septic system, including the drainage field, for any signs of damage or drainage issues
- Water level check inside of your tank, including a look at the sludge and scum layers inside your tank
- A detailed review of your system’s parts and operation, including an overview of the current condition of your septic tank
- Specific checks to ensure there are no backflow issues
If your system is older, or if you are experiencing chronic issues, you may wish to have it inspected more often. Speak with our team of septic experts to find out how often your system should be inspected. Our goal is to ensure that your system is operating safely and efficiently, and our technicians will always provide you with the honest, straightforward advice you need.
