Residential Septic System Inspections

A well-installed septic system can provide years of reliable service. However, at some point, issues may arise, necessitating a septic inspection. In certain cases, even in the absence of apparent trouble, scheduling an inspection is still beneficial.

At Anytime Septic Solutions Inc., we want to shed light on residential septic inspections, ensuring you have the necessary knowledge should the need for an inspection arise.

When are Septic Inspections Necessary?

Our expert team conducts septic system inspections for three primary reasons:

  • Detection of Damage or Malfunction:
  • A modern septic system comprises various components, such as pipes, the septic tank, grease trap, drain field, and possibly a lift station pump. If you encounter any of the following signs, it’s time to call for a septic system inspection:
  • Backing up of toilets
  • Slow drainage in sinks and tubs throughout the home
  • Foul odors inside or outside the home
  • Wet areas or lush grass above or near the septic tank

At Anytime Septic, our skilled crew can swiftly identify the cause of any septic issue, providing repairs or replacements as needed to restore your system’s proper functionality.

  • During Home Buying or Selling:
  • Before purchasing a new home, it’s essential to perform property-wide inspections, including a thorough septic inspection. We go the extra mile by conducting a stress test to assess how the system performs under normal usage conditions. This test, a standard part of our septic inspections, ensures you have a comprehensive understanding of the system’s condition before making a purchase.
  • Regular Maintenance Inspection:
  • Routine inspections of residential septic systems are crucial to detect early signs of trouble. Based on factors like tank size, home size, and occupancy, we’ll recommend an appropriate inspection schedule. Neglecting septic system maintenance can lead to costly repairs that could have been avoided. As most parts of a septic system remain concealed underground, only licensed inspectors can accurately assess their condition.
