Answers to 4 Septic Tank Inspection FAQs
What Should I Expect From the Service?
There are two primary septic tank inspections: visual and full. A visual inspection includes checking drains, flushing each toilet, and evaluating the drain field. A full examination is a comprehensive undertaking, and your technician will review the condition of your tank inside and out. They will check the drainage lines, evaluate the interior of the tank, and perform backflow and sludge testing to ensure it has the right combination of bacteria to break down waste efficiently.
When Should I Schedule One?
It’s best to schedule a comprehensive septic tank inspection every 1–3 years or at the first sign of trouble. If a toilet backs up, water drains slowly, you notice an odor coming from your pipes, or you see standing water over the leach field in your yard, call a septic maintenance company immediately.
Does the Tank Need to Be Pumped?
To assess the condition of a septic tank, a technician must pump it to see below the waste level. Queen’s Septic Tank Service can pump and inspect your tank during the same service call.
How Long Does It Take?
The time required to conduct a thorough septic tank inspection varies depending on the size and state of your system as well as problems that arise. On average, an inspection takes a few hours.
