Septic System Inspection
Septic systems are a vivacious system in many homes – particularly those situated outside of a city/town. A tricky septic system can be messy, unwholesome, and very costly. Unluckily, many septic systems fall under the category of out-of-sight, out-of-mind. If I had a nickel for every time homeowners told me, “I’ve never had a problem with the septic, therefore I’ve never impelled it……” This is just like the saying, “I’ve never had engine trouble in my car, so I’ve never changed the oil.” Just as you do change the oil in your vehicle to avoid engine problems, a septic tank should be preserved to prevent septic system problems.
We offer septic system inspections in the central Texas area, where the tank needs to be pumped and/or where the system is performing lethargically. If a neglected septic system just needs the tank to be driven, then consider yourself lucky. If the system has been deserted for a long duration, it is very possible that it will be performing sluggishly. This is often a much more difficult and costly problem than one that just needs to be pumped. A slothful septic system will often result in backups in the yard, or even in the home. The sluggishness is often instigated by the lateral lines or drain field failing. The fix for this is often quite expensive. Septic system failure can often be prevented by regular maintenance such as regular pumping of the tank to diminish the way of solid matter into the drain-field. (At times, we are not capable of locating the tank or opening it up. In those cases the inspection routine will be altered.)
Our normal septic system inspection procedure is as follows:
1. We locate the septic tank.
2. We dig down to the top of the tank, then find and remove the clean-out plug in order to open the septic tank.
3. We inspect the visible part of the interior of the tank for cracks, root buildup, and any other problems that we observe.
4. We review the septic tank to define the amount of mud, filth, and liquid in the tank.
5. We perform a water flow test to govern how well the sidelines are functioning.
6. We inspect the drain field area for signals of surfacing water.
7. We effort to determine the proximity of the septic tank and drain field to wells, and path of water, etc.
