Septic Inspection, Repair and Replacement
A septic system receives, treats, and disposes of all the household's waste water. Every time you brush your teeth, flush the toilet, or do your laundry, pipes bring the waste water from your home to an underground tank where the water is separated from solid waste, then put through a natural filtration process that eventually puts it back into the groundwater. Because the system is underground and out of view, homeowners may neglect to keep up with proper maintenance and cleaning - which can have costly consequences.
Regular maintenance of septic systems is strongly recommended every 2 to 4 years, even if there are no drainage backups or odd odors being emitted. These systems aren't meant to last forever, and lack of regular maintenance greatly decreases their life expectancy. It's quite common for most people to give their septic system attention only when they smell trouble - literally!
Benefits of a Septic Inspection
Since it is very common for homeowners to neglect regular maintenance and inspections, when a prospective buyer of a home that has a septic system, comprehensive septic inspections are strongly recommended as part of their overall due diligence. Replacing or repairing a septic system can be expensive and stressful. Knowing the condition of the system can help you make a more informed decision and help with your negotiations.
