Since one out of every four homes have a septic system, it pays to be safe. Whether you’re selling or buying a home, it’s always wise to inspect the septic system to ensure it is working properly. We offer video services for line inspections and pipe locating and can work directly with you or with your real estate agent.
For optimum system performance, we have a specially blended septic maintenance formula that is designed to improve and maintain septic tank and cesspool performance. This service will ensure that you never have a septic emergency!
How often should you inspect your system?
Tanks need to be well maintained to operate at their best. They require inspection every 1 – 3 years, depending on which region you’re in. Typically, we recommend servicing tanks every 3 – 5 years. They will need to be serviced more frequently for certain types of soaps (liquid soaps are harder on septic systems than powder). Also, any medical conditions and the types of paper products discharged through your system will impact the frequency of service.
Also, if your home remains vacant for more than six months, septic problems can arise and an inspection is recommended.
