Why Are Septic System Inspections So Important?

It's simple — septic systems must be inspected on a routine basis, even if a system appears to be working just fine. Inspections evaluate the present and future performance of an existing sewage system, and the fact that a system appears to be in good working condition at the present time does not guarantee that it will continue to function for any given period of time.
So while your toilets may flush, the drains still work, and there is no evidence of sewage drainfield surfacing, your system still needs to be inspected regularly. Typical septic systems should be inspected by a professional at least every one to three years, and be pumped as recommended by the inspector generally every three to five years.

Septic systems require routine monitoring and subsequent maintenance to ensure that they work property and do not pose a human health or environmental risk via pollutants in household wastewater. Get your septic system inspected to prevent the spread of infection and disease. Sewage from septic systems can pose a significant threat to drinking water and lead to infectious disease ranging from eye and ear infections, gastrointestinal illness, and even hepatitis. When a system or soil absorption reaches maximum capacity, sewage can back up into the basement or surface at the soil.

 If that doesn't give you enough incentive to have your system inspected, know that failing septic systems are expensive to repair or replace, with poor maintenance often the cause of expensive repairs. What's more, failing septic systems will lower your property value and could even lead to a lawsuit.

Call SES to schedule your septic system inspection. Based in Warrenton, Virginia, SES has been inspecting, servicing, maintaining, and repairing residential and commercial Northern Virginia septic systems since 1987.
