Consultation About The Septic System
Every homeowner who schedules an inspection with us will get a consultation. The consultation is an important part of the inspection process and we will explain why in just a bit. Our professional will come to your residence, talk with you about your situation in order to learn more about the history and current situation of your septic system. It's important for you to be ready for this conversation in order to pass on as much accurate information that you have and want us to know. We will then look over any current problems you are experiencing and discuss the state of your septic system thoroughly. Pease ask us as many questions you can think of during this process. We really want to take the time to educate you as much as we can. We want to start off with a consultation because it educates the homeowner and it also informs the septic tank master on what to look for when proceeding.
The Visual Inspection Of The Septic System
Next up is the visual inspection of the septic system, the entire system. This is a more complicated process than it seems. How does someone visual inspect something that is underground? Just like other technicians in other industries, a professional septic technician uses tools, (cameras, mirrors, etc.) to look inside your filtration system and tank in order to best figure out what is going on. Using these tools to do the inspection helps to locate any sources of clogs, damage, or leaks. If we are able to locate these problems visually, we will know exactly where to attack the problem and can potentially fix it quicker!
Septic System Drain-field Testing
We now have the visual inspection complete and it's time to move to testing the drainfield. Part of testing the drainfield involves digging holes around the perimeter of the entire septic system to see what is going on. When looking inside these holes we are looking for standing water which is a sign that the septic system needs some immediate maintenance. This type of inspection can really help you catch small issues before they become worse, which can be costly if they do. Investing in an inspection is a smart move for every homeowner, please give us a call to schedule your inspection today!
