Septic systems are essential components of our homes. And yet, we tend to forget to care for them until they develop problems. When these problems arise, they are usually messy and cost a lot to repair or replace. One way to help avoid these unforeseen problems is through regular septic inspections.
But how regular should the inspections be? Well, there’s no fixed standard, but the EPA recommends that septic systems be inspected at least every three years by a septic service professional. This frequency may increase or decrease depending on other factors, such as the size of your household or your septic system.
Nevertheless, we believe you always want the best outcome for your home. This is why we recommend you hire us for annual septic inspections. This will ensure that you stay ahead of any hidden issues or problems. You may also call us whenever you notice any drainage issues, foul smells, or other problems around your septic system.
It’s also important to note that different septic inspections are carried out at different frequencies. The most common ones are:
- Visual inspections. These involve us doing a routine check for obvious drainage issues. We are always happy to perform them at your request.
- Full inspections. These are the total package. We’ll thoroughly assess your septic system and make a detailed report of the required repairs. Full inspections should ideally be done every one to three years by a trusted professional.
