Your septic system is underground, and therefore protected, right? While your septic system doesn’t necessarily see the same type of use that your home plumbing does, your septic system is actually one of the most-used systems on your property. That’s what makes routine septic system inspections so important. Here are three reasons you should always make sure to schedule septic system inspections at your home:
- Tank Maintenance – Knowing how often to have your septic tank pumped often begins with a septic system inspection. Especially if you have moved to a new home or you aren’t sure of the frequency with which you need septic tank pumping, a septic tank inspection is a critical starting point.
- Avoiding Backups – Septic system inspections are also a critical piece of preventative maintenance. A septic contractor will be able to identify whether you have a clog or backed up septic system that requires immediate attention, which could ultimately prevent you from an unexpected septic emergency.
- Preventing Contamination – Lastly, septic system inspections are an important step in preventing ground water contamination. Your contractor will inspect all of the major components of your septic system, including the drain field, to make sure everything is in proper working order.
