Make Sure Your System is Operating Properly: Have Your Septic System Inspected

January 10, 2017  

septic inspection in Lake StevensAt Superior Septic Service, we know that getting a septic inspection in Lake Stevens probably isn’t on the top of your priority list. However, once you understand the importance of keeping your septic system in good shape, and the potential consequences of ignoring the need for inspections and repairs, you will be happy to schedule your needed periodic inspections for peace of mind.

Septic inspections are important for a variety of reasons. First of all, they are required by law. There are good reasons for this requirement – we will look at those in a minute. Gravity fed septic systems should be inspected once every three years, and systems that use pumps should be inspected every year. The reasons for inspections are cogent and important. They include checking mechanical parts such as lids and baffles for the septic tank, checking pumps for worn parts and making sure that the lines out into the leech field have not collapsed. Keeping your septic tank in good repair, as we have often mentioned before, is not just a matter of staying within the bounds of the law or even one of making sure that your home sanitation system is doing its job of taking waste out of your house. Keeping a septic system in good repair is a public service, because you are contributing to the ability for everyone to have clean, potable water for drinking, bathing and general cleaning. Planning your inspection well ahead of time allows you a chance to budget the necessary fees and to work the inspection date into your busy schedule.
