Septic Tank Inspections: Visual vs. Full

When you schedule an inspection of your septic tank, the experts might perform a visual and a full inspection. Here’s what you can expect during both:

  • Visual inspections: During these inspections, a professional typically asks how old the house is, how often the homeowner pumps the septic system, and when it was last inspected. An inspector might then flush the toilets to check the water pressure and drainage. He or she might also go to the drain field and look for standing water.
  • Full inspections: These inspections are much more in-depth than visual inspections. Professionals will remove the unit’s cover and check the water level. He or she will run the water in the house to make sure it’s flowing properly to the tank. An expert might also perform a dye test to see how much water enters the septic tank. A professional will then pump the system and look for backflow.

To schedule an inspection at your residential or commercial property, call our technicians at Capital City Septic Services.

How Often Should Septic Tanks Be Inspected?

Do you wait until your septic tank malfunctions to have it inspected? By this time it may be too late and there is typically already an issue that needs to be repaired. Instead, our technicians recommend scheduling a full inspection of your unit at least every 3 to 5 years. This can also align with when you should have your tank pumped. This will help keep your system working properly.
