Like most large appliances in and around your home, your septic system requires regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. Smart homeowners understand the value of performing inspections as part of your routine maintenance.
THERE ARE TWO BASIC TYPES OF SEPTIC SYSTEM INSPECTION: VISUAL AND FULL
A visual inspection involves flushing the toilets and running the faucets for several minutes to surge the system and check for leaks or other problems. It should also include a walk-through of the yard area above the septic system.
While visual inspections are sometimes carried out by home inspectors, working with a qualified septic service professional is always recommended.
A full inspection is more thorough and examines the inside of your septic tank to check the water level. This helps the inspector determine if there is a leak or if the system is overloaded.
In most cases during a full inspection, the septic tank is pumped and the drainfield monitored for backflow. L&L will also examine the pipes to ensure there is nothing blocking water flow from the house to the tank.
