Septic inspections are designed to help give you a regular update on the condition of your septic tank. Septic inspections are usually performed by professionals on a yearly basis to ensure that your septic tank is in working order, it’s not using more water or energy than needed for it to operate, and it’s thoroughly removing and filtering waste accordingly. When a septic tank does not meet these conditions or is falling short, then it could require some maintenance or repairs to bring it back up to code standard.
Annual inspections are available through Tacoma Septic Pros in order to maintain your septic tank system’s quality and integrity. Our annual inspections are offered at a low cost that makes them affordable and accessible to all those who need regular checks throughout the year. We recommend having a professional look at your septic tank system on an annual basis to avoid hefty repair fees or maintenance fees due to neglect. Once your septic tank system passes an annual inspection, you likely don’t need to worry about it until the following year when it’s due for a new inspection or if your contractor advises you to have the tank cleaned or pumped soon.
The checklist of items that we look out for during inspections include looking at the tank itself, any debris or buildup on the bottom of it that has hardened and whether or not it could be cleaned, the scum levels, water levels, pipe attachments, water flow, and filters. If all of these items appear in working order and there is nothing to cause concern, your septic tank system will likely pass its inspection without further maintenance needed. If there are items, however, such as leaks, odors, faulty filters, or excessive hardened scum buildup, then we’ll recommend solutions to reducing these risks which can lead to damaged or faulty septic tank systems as a whole.
As the septic tank professionals of Tacoma, we’re authorized to provide certifications for septic tank inspections. Since we operate with a license in the field of septic tank installation and maintenance, we’re able to give you detailed feedback on the current status and condition of your septic tank and whether or not it meets local code standards. If your septic tank passes inspection, we’ll provide you with a detailed overview of your inspection, what we found (if anything), and when your next inspection or maintenance appointment should take place.
Our septic inspections are designed to bring you a sense of security amongst your tank system. We want you to feel secure when using your septic tank and know that it is safely removing waste from your home and storing it adequately until it can later be pumped away by professionals. Annual inspections help bring a stronger sense of security because you’re given an ongoing update of your tank throughout the year and can know when to expect cleanings, tank pumps, or repairs, rather than having your septic tank need maintenance unexpectedly.
