A question we get from our clients quite often is, “how often should I have a septic tank inspection in New Baltimore VA?”
It’s a fair question, and the reality is that there’s no one “right” answer. Your septic tank is an incredibly robust piece of equipment, but like any piece of equipment, it does need maintenance now and again. A good rule of thumb though is that you should get it done any time you have your tank pumped out, which should be happening about every three to five years. Since we’ve already got your tank opened up to pump it out, it just makes sense to do the inspection then.
Of course, rules of thumb will only get you so far. You should have a septic tank inspection in New Baltimore VA conducted immediately if you notice any of the following:
- A bad smell coming from the area in and around your septic tank and drain field
- Brightly colored grass growing over your septic tank and drain field
- Standing water, mud, or “squishy” soil in the area of your septic tank or drain field
- The pipes connected to your sinks and toilets clank, rattle and groan any time you turn on a faucet or flush a toilet
- Your toilet won’t flush properly, no matter how often or vigorously you use your plunger
- Or your sinks drain very slowly
By the time these symptoms are noticeable, whatever problems is causing them has already gotten quite advanced, and will only get worse over time. The longer you wait to take action, the more expensive your repair bill is likely to be, and if you leave the problem unchecked for too long, you may even find yourself having to replace your entire septic system, which is going to be painfully expensive. Not a happy situation. That’s why regular septic tank inspection in New Baltimore VA is so important!
