Health Departments recommend that people with a septic tank have their system inspected every year.
Having your septic system inspected includes getting your sludge and scum levels measured, checking the system's pipes and mechanisms, and inspecting the drain field to make sure it's percolating the effluent properly. The average septic tank system usually requires pumping every one to three years.
After pumping, the tank and filter are cleaned and inspected. If the experts from Soils and Environmental Services find any problems, these can be addressed before your septic tank fails.
Without regular pumping and cleaning of the septic tank, the system can fail and overflow. Sometimes overflow can lead back to the house, where toilets and drains belch forth what's supposed to be in the septic tank. Overflow can also lead to a sudden deluge of unprocessed waste flooding the drain field, which can contaminate your ground water and could make your family and neighbors very sick.
