Fall is a good time for Septic Inspection in Arlington
October 5, 2017
Superior Septic Service reminds our customers and others in the area that fall is a good time for septic inspection in Arlington. Gravity feed septic tanks are required to have an inspection every three years; elevated septic tanks are required to be inspected yearly.
Inspections do a lot more than just keep your home sanitation system in compliance. They increase the likelihood of catching small problems before they become big ones. These might include broken baffles, loose lids, improper flow in the leach field, and much more. Of course, you are likely to be the first to notice real problems. Warning signs include slow drains, backed up sinks or toilets, standing water when there has been little or no rain and unusual odors. Any of these symptoms can indicate a problem with your septic tank. Some of these difficulties can be easily fixed by pumping the contents out of the tank or even by giving the bacteria in the tank a little boost. If you have an above-ground tank, a pump going out can have an adverse effect on your septic tank’s performance. An inspection can help catch a few of these troubles, as well as keeping your home sanitation system in compliance.
