Frequently Asked Quetions

All septic systems have a finite life span. In most cases, it is impossible to predict if your septic system will last 3 or 30 years. But you can protect your septic system from costly breakdowns and repairs with periodic septic inspections.

When to Inspect

  • As soon as a house is put on the market. This will enhance the home’s value and avoid any liability issues that might result from a malfunctioning system.
  • Once per year.

When to Pump

Septic tanks should be checked for buildup every 1 to 3 years until you can get on a predictable pumping schedule. Most septic tanks need pumping every 3 to 5 years. How often depends on the size of the tank, the number of people in the household, and the amount and type of solids entering the tank.

What Occurs During an Inspection

During our inspection process we will:

  • Inspect the condition of the septic and pump tank and report the structural condition and suggest when the pumping should be done by measuring the scum and sludge levels.
  • Inspect the drip field area for wet spots or other issues. If we find a leak in the tubing, we usually do not charge for that repair if done at time of routine service.
  • Clean and inspect the disc filters.
  • Run a test cycle to inspect the hydraulic unit for leaks, and proper functions.Check the control panel for proper functioning.
  • Check the dosing and flush rates which tell us about the general health of the system.
  • Record results, then fill out and file the necessary paperwork required by the county Health Department.

What Our Clients Say

  • I moved into a home with an old antiquated drip septic system. When pump and PLC controller failed, Jeff was able to locate replacement parts to refurbish the system. Everything has worked fine for several years now which saved me thousands to replace with a new unit.
