The septic system is a crucial part of any home or business establishment. Where do you think the water from your kitchen sink goes? How about the toilet? Yes, down to septic tank. Sadly, this important element is often neglected and uncared for. When such is the case, the homeowner could experience quite a handful of mishaps – from clogging and blocking to water backups and standing water – these and more are what you’ll most likely experience.
These problems are clear indications that the septic system needs to be checked and repaired immediately. For the most part, a septic pumping can get the septic system working efficiently once more. Damaged pipes and valves can also be repaired. But when the damage is beyond repair, a system replacement may be your most feasible solution. Whether you’re planning to sell your home or business, or you just want to make sure that everything’s in place, a septic inspection can provide you the answers you need.
Septic Inspection vs Septic Pumping
During septic tank pumping, the septic tank is the only element being inspected, hence, pumping does not generally mean your system has undergone the necessary inspection process. When the septic system is pumped, the septic tank is just being unclogged without the whole system being inspected. With a septic inspection, it involves a more detailed process in order to identify if there are issues to be addressed or if the system is working just fine.
Through septic inspection, the root of the problem will be readily identified, saving you lots of money in the process. A short-term solution will help you, but you’ll actually be losing more if the real cause won’t be given a definite solution. Clogging, for instance, may be resolved by septic tank pumping, but what if there are actually broken pipe lines? You won’t be able to see that during septic pumping alone.
