Has it been a while since you had a septic tank inspection of your Falls Church VA system? If you can’t even remember when the last one took place, then it’s probably past time for another, and if you’re not sure, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
We’re the region’s top rated septic tank inspection company in Falls Church VA. We’ve been in business since 1992, and in that time, there’s not much our guys haven’t seen, so if we find a problem, whatever it happens to be, we’ve got you covered.
In terms of how often you should have your tank inspected, our recommendation is this: Get it done anytime you have your tank pumped out, which should happen every three to five years to keep the system in good working order. We’ve already got the tank opened up to pump it anyway, and at that point, inspection is easy.
While the “three to five year rule” is a good rule of thumb, there are times you’ll definitely want to break it, including if you notice any of the following:
• Bad smells coming from your pipes, or the area in your yard in and around where the septic tank is located
• Soggy or muddy ground in the area of the drain field
• Grass that is much more brightly colored over the septic tank than it is anywhere else in your yard
• Pipes that rattle and groan when you turn your faucets on or flush your toilets
• Sinks that drain slowly
• Or toilets that struggle to flush properly, even after you’ve taken the plunger to them
By the time any of these symptoms become noticeable, whatever underlying problem that’s causing them has already become quite advanced, so it’s important to have a septic tank inspection performed on your Falls Church VA home right away.
Doing nothing about the problem isn’t going to make it go away, and in fact, the longer it is left untended, the worse it’s likely to get, which will invariably translate into a bigger repair bill when you do take action.
If we find a problem, before we do the actual repair work, we’ll be sure to give you a free, no-obligation quote so you’ll have a clear understanding of what it will take to get it fixed. Then, assuming you’re comfortable with our estimate, we’ll get to work and resolve the issue quickly and professionally, leaving you one less thing to worry about.
With inspections and pump outs at regular intervals, your home’s septic system should give you decades of reliable, hassle-free service, so don’t put it off. Give us a call and schedule an appointment today. You’ll be very glad you did!
