The Importance of Septic Tank Inspections

One of the most important features of a home is the septic system. This system is responsible for removing all the wastewater from your home. You will always want to make sure that your septic tank is in great shape. Some people do not pay attention to their septic system until there is a problem. Instead of waiting around until there is a problem, you can call us here at American Freedom Plumber for a septic tank inspection. An inspection of your system should be done every few years to ensure the proper functionality of your system.

If you are in the process of purchasing a new home, you should call us for a septic system inspection to ensure that the home you are buying has a properly installed septic system. While it is true that your home inspector could check out your septic tank, they may not know what to look for. We will know what exactly to look for when it comes to your septic system. Take the time to call our office today so that we can show you how we take care of a septic system inspection.

Our Expert Technicians

Here at American Freedom Plumber, we pride ourselves on having knowledgeable technicians. All of our employees are well trained in the world of plumbing and septic systems. Experience is imperative in this line of work. You never want to hire someone to work on your septic system that does not have extensive knowledge in the field. Septic systems can be complex, and every inch of the system needs to be inspected. With a team that is full of experts, you can rest easy that if there is anything wrong with your septic system, we will find it.

What We Look For During Inspection

The very first thing that we do when we come out is to locate the septic system for inspection. Since your tank is under the ground, you might not know exactly where it is. Our technicians will quickly find the tank and begin the inspection.

Once we have located your septic system, we will begin the inspection. We will take a look at the sludge level, and determine whether or not it is approaching the level where it will need to be pumped. We will then take a look at the individual components of the septic system. This will include the drain lines, raisers, and baffles. We will also make sure that water is flowing properly. We will also inspect the drain field and the lines that feed that field.

Once we have completed our inspection, we will meet with you to let you know if there are things that need to be repaired. In some cases, we find issues with drain lines leaking, missing components, or a septic tank that needs to be pumped. We will compile this list for you so that you can determine how to go forward. It is important to note that if we do find issues with your septic system, you have it repaired as soon as possible. The longer you wait to make repairs, the worse the issue may get. This can lead to an increase of issues not only for your property, but your wallet as well.

Taking Care of Your System

To ensure that you have a good septic tank inspection as well as a fully functioning septic system, you will need to watch what is put into the system. One of the worst things homeowners do is to put in a garbage disposal. A garbage disposal puts food debris into the pipes and the septic system. Over time, this can cause massive issues with your septic system. You also must avoid putting cigarette butts, sanitary products, diapers, and extreme amounts of toilet paper into the septic system. Some people think it is ok to flush anything down the toilet, including chemicals, medication, gas, paint, pesticides, and certain cleaners. Putting these things into the septic system can cause a premature breakdown. Only put septic system safe products into your drains.
