Septic Systems often suffer from being ‘out of sight’ and ‘out of mind.’ Since they’re buried underground, and many don’t need to be pumped for years at a time, people stop thinking about them until something bad starts to happen. Before you start smelling weird smells out of your plumbing, and long before mysterious clogs make life more difficult, set up a regular septic inspection appointment.
Schedule Regular Septic Inspections
Your septic system is a complex part of your home that depends on several different parts working together. A simple inspection by a qualified professional can help you identify broken components, cracks, and leaks. Newer septic systems might need more frequent inspection to care for expensive, high-tech parts, and, on the other side of the extreme, aged septic systems should also be seen frequently to keep track of wear and tear.
How Long Can I Wait for a Septic System Inspection?
If all the attention your septic system gets is a pumping appointment every 3-5 years, that probably won’t be enough. At least once between pumpings, try to schedule an inspection, especially if something seems amiss with your plumbing and water. When it comes to waste management systems, an ounce of prevention now can save you a lot of money, stress and headache in the long run. Keep up with inspections to stay ahead of future challenges.
Again, the more advanced and complicated the system, the more frequent inspections should be. Aim for yearly appointments so early signs of future trouble can be monitored and dealt with in a timely manner.
