How a Septic Inspection Is Performed

A comprehensive septic inspection is a meticulous process that starts with thoroughly examining the state and condition of your system. 

One of our technicians can confirm whether the tank is accessible, assess the structure’s integrity, and check for any visible signs of leakage. 

They then evaluate the drain field for signs of an overburdened system, such as standing water or unusually lush vegetation growth. Our technician can also examine the baffles, which are the devices in the tank that prevent solid waste from entering the drain field. Any damage or issues with these could potentially result in significant problems down the line.

The inspector may also conduct a hydraulic load test to ensure the system operates optimally. This process involves introducing water into the system to ascertain whether the system can handle the load.

Finally, maintenance records are reviewed to confirm that the septic system has been regularly pumped and maintained.

Issues Commonly Identified During Septic Inspections 

During septic inspections, several different issues could be identified. These can range from minor concerns requiring routine maintenance to more significant problems requiring immediate attention and repair. 

Some common issues that are often identified during septic inspections include:

  • Clogged or Blocked Pipes: This can cause sewage backup, resulting in a serious health hazard. Regular pumping and cleaning can help prevent this issue.
  • Overloaded or Oversaturated Drain Field: Your system may not function properly if the drain field is overwhelmed with excessive water. This could be due to high household water use, persistent heavy rain, thawing snow, or a leak in the system.
  • Cracks or Damage to the Septic Tank: Any visible cracks or damage to the tank can lead to leakage, odor issues, and potential groundwater contamination.
  • Poor Maintenance History: If your septic system has not been regularly maintained, including routine pumping and cleaning, you could be facing a variety of complications, including clogs, backups, and system failure.
  • Inadequate or Failed Baffle: The baffle is a crucial component that prevents solid waste from entering the drain field. If it is damaged or fails, it can lead to significant problems.

By identifying issues like these during a septic inspection, we can make repairs that meaningfully contribute to the longevity and functionality of your system.

When Should I Have My Septic System Inspected?

Regular septic system inspections are essential for maintaining your system’s overall health and functionality. As a rule of thumb, a septic service professional should inspect a septic system at least once every three years. However, the frequency of inspections can depend on several factors, including the age of the system, the number of people living in your home, the amount of wastewater your home generates, the volume of solids in the wastewater, and the size of your septic tank. 

It’s also highly recommended to have a septic inspection performed when you are buying a home. An examination can reveal underlying issues and prevent unexpected and costly repairs. 

Other circumstances that may call for an inspection include a noticeable decrease in the system’s efficiency, such as slow drainage or standing water over the drain field.

Remember, early detection of potential septic system issues can lead to less expensive and less invasive repairs. So, don’t wait until you have a problem. Keep your system in shape with regular inspections from Parent Sanitation, your trusted provider of septic services.
