The Need for Annual Septic Inspections
Having your septic system inspected isn’t a one-time thing that’s completed after your tank is installed. It’s actually an important maintenance process that will help you keep your system up and running longer (protecting your initial investment).
So how often should you have your system inspected? Most septic experts recommend that you have a professional come out at least once every 3-5 years to inspect (and possibly pump/drain) your system. Others suggest inspections every year.
Depending on where you live and the type of septic system that you have installed, some municipalities and local governments now require homeowners to have their septic equipment inspected annually. The report is put on file with the county, and homeowners are alerted if they fall behind on their inspections.
Benefits of Yearly Septic Inspections
Regular septic inspections are a vital part of preventing costly repairs and system damage. What might go overlooked until something breaks could be intercepted and repaired before bigger problems pop up. Newer systems may not need to be inspected as often, but if you’re in an older Douglasville home, we recommend having your system inspected on a yearly basis.
What’s Being Checked?
Septic tanks may not seem very complicated, but there are a lot of different parts involved. During your inspection, we’ll check everything from the internal monitors and drain lines to the sludge levels. If the tank needs to be pumped, we’ll let you know.
