You know your septic system is an important part of your home. You likely have HVAC, plumbing, and other systems inspected regularly. What about a septic inspection? It’s also a wise idea.

What is Involved in a Septic Inspection?

Here are some of the things the professionals get into during one of these inspections.

  • Tank Integrity – Septic tanks are built to last, but nothing lasts forever. The inspector will want to look at the tank to ensure it is doing a good job and holding up well. Sometimes, things like small cracks can be repaired, and other times, they warn you that replacement is necessary.
  • Efficiency – Every homeowner wants their home to run as efficiently as possible. Septic tanks could have issues that prevent that from occurring. The inspector will give you a rundown of anything happening in and around the tank that won’t allow you to have the efficiency you want.
  • The Leach Field – Your septic tank lets the waste out into the yard once it is processed. The septic inspection includes a full inspection of that area to make sure things are running properly. Our professionals at Clark Septic can tell a lot by looking at that field.

It’s a good idea to get regular septic inspections done on your system. It’s simple and easy to fix small things, but when larger problems arise, it gets costly and a lot harder to remedy the situation.
