Start the New Year with a Septic Tank Inspection
We understand that few people would put having a septic tank inspection at the top of their New Year's Resolution list. It simply doesn't rank in comparison with achieving professional goals, getting in shape, or taking a dream vacation. However, if one of your goals is to become more organized, stay on top of things, or improve the condition of your home, having your septic tank inspected should absolutely be part of that process.
After all, your septic system is a requirement for comfortable modern living. Without it, waste cannot escape your home, which means that indoor toilets, showers, dishwashers and washing machines will stop working. Essentially, no septic tank means a blast back to pioneer days, and few would romanticize life with no indoor plumbing. The good news is that modern plumbing is here to stay, and by caring for your system, yours should continue to function just fine.
Reasons to Schedule a Septic Tank Inspection
There are many reasons to use our services; among them are:
#1 – You bought a new house
Any time you purchase a new home, you should have your septic tank inspected to ensure it is functioning smoothly and also have it pumped.
#2 – Your family is expanding
If you are getting more people in your family through birth, marriage, etc., your septic tank may be too small. We can let you know if an upgrade is necessary.
#3 – You want to remodel
If you want to remodel your home, you need to have your septic tank inspected. This is because the position of your drain field and the septic tank may interfere with your remodeling plans and may need to be moved. Additionally, you may not have the approval to put in new bedrooms based on the size of your septic tank. Your contract will provide you with some advice regarding this, but we should still inspect your unit.
#4 – Your septic tank has been causing problems
If you are already having problems with your septic tank, the toilets are flushing slowly, or the sewage is backing up occasionally, you should call us for help.
#5 – Your septic system is old
Septic tanks and system are not designed to last forever. Regular cleanings and maintenance can prolong the lifespan, but you should be aware that if your home was built in 1960 and the same system is in place, there is a good chance that yours is going to give up before you know it. Inspecting the unit, we can let you know what the likelihood is of a malfunction and how long it's going to be before you need to replace yours.
