If it’s been a while since you last turned to us for septic tank services and you’re not sure whether you should schedule an inspection, there are a few factors that should play a role in this decision.

Septic Tank Services: How Often Should You Schedule an Inspection?

  • Septic Tank ServicesThe Date of Your Last Inspection- A good way to tell if you should schedule an inspection is to determine when your last inspection took place. Generally speaking, if it’s been over five years since your last inspection, it’s a good idea to contact us right away. If you moved into a new home with a septic system and you’re not sure when it was last serviced, do your best to locate this information from the past owners or the realtor. 
  • Warning Signs- When it comes to septic tank services, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. If your drains have been slower than usual, your drains make gurgling sounds, or there are damp areas around your septic tank and drain field, it’s definitely time to schedule an inspection. 
  • Water Consumption- How much water your household consumes can impact how often you need to get your septic tank looked at. If there are several people living in your household or you use quite a bit of water on a daily basis, you’re going to need to get your septic tank looked at on a frequent basis.
