FAQ About Septic Inspections

Though almost a fifth of homes have septic systems, many homeowners need to become more familiar with how they work and the maintenance they need. Here are answers to commonly asked questions about septic inspections:

How often is a septic tank inspection required?

Typically, you should have an inspection whenever you get your tank pumped, approximately every three to five years. However, you may need more regular inspections if you have a large family. You should also consider an inspection before buying or selling a home.

What happens during an inspection?

There are two types of septic inspections. A visual inspection includes checking the age of the system and its maintenance. Then an inspector will test the system’s pressure by flushing toilets or turning on faucets. This will be followed by a drain field check that looks for standing water or foul odors that indicate a need for repair.

A full septic inspection is significantly more reliable as it involves opening up the tank to check its level and how water flows from the home. Then after the tank is drained, we’ll look for backflow between the tank and the drain field. This ensures you’re not experiencing blockages.

What does a septic inspection cost?

The exact cost of your inspection depends on the tank’s size and a few other variables. Though this may seem like a high cost, it’s a critical service that gives you peace of mind.

Septic Inspections for Home Buyers

If you’re interested in moving into a home with a septic system, you can gain a multitude of benefits from an inspection before you seal the deal. Occasionally, an inspection may be required by the local municipal or your lender. This obligation typically falls on the homebuyer prior to the sale.

If it’s not required, we still recommend an inspection, so you know what to expect from your new home. This gives you valuable information, like when it should be pumped and how old the system is. If the system is over 25 years old, it may be time for a replacement, which is a significant investment after buying a home.

It’s essential that you have confidence in purchasing your new home with an expert septic inspection in Stafford. Our professionals can assure you that your septic system is strong and ready for your family or that repairs are necessary. Let us help you decide if a home is right for you.

At American Tank Cleaning, we care about our customers like family with a team of professionals that have 25 years of experience. We work hard to provide reliable services at a competitive price so we can be your one-stop shop for your septic needs.
