What a Septic System Inspection Consists of

Nothing beats thinking before acting and getting a job effectively completed. If you have just transferred into a new home with a system and the prior homeowner has not given you the record of the unit, it is a smart idea to schedule a septic tank pumping and an inspection. This will give you with valuable information, so you are not caught off guard with any unpleasant surprise repairs eventually. Our technicians regularly give septic inspections for households, including those needed for real estate transactions. So, what happens during a septic inspection?

An inspector will need to get to the tank, so if your system does not have risers on it that bring the portholes approximately ground level, digging will need to be done.

He will use a long measuring tool to examine the depth various layers. When a system is working properly, the contents of a tank will divide into three distinct layers. The "scum," or resilient products, will drift at the top and the "sludge," which is solid waste, will gather at the bottom of the tank. In the middle, there will be "effluent," which is liquid that is ready to leave the tank and move on to the drain field. A general general rule is that the sludge should not amount to more than one-third the level of effluent. If it surpasses this, the tank needs to be pumped.
