Septic System Inspections

underground septic tank being inspected in ​Bakersfield, CA​One of the most overlooked of septic system requirements is inspections. After installation, as well as scheduling septic tank cleaning ​and pumping, most people assume that they are all set. But, this could not be further from the truth.

​Why Inspections are Necessary?

The thing with septic systems maintenance services such as pumping and cleaning is that you need them after 3 to 5 years. However, this does not offer full cover for your septic tank since anything can happen in between that time. A concrete septic tank could develop a crack, output pipes could get blocked, or sludge could build up faster than anticipated. Therefore, that is why inspections are indispensable. Routine checks help to ensure everything is running smoothly. 

In general, septic tank inspections are carried out every 6 to 12 months, depending on several factors. However, you should schedule an inspection immediately when you notice issues such as foul smell emanating from the tank, wetness on drain field, slow draining sinks, or poorly flushing toilets. In case of bad weather such as an extreme winter, it is also safe to have an inspection done to ensure septic system components were not damaged.
