Getting regular inspections on the various systems in your home that require regular maintenance and care is important, but what exactly are contractors checking during these inspections? It helps to know what your technician is looking for, so here are some of the main things that get checked during a septic inspection.
- The septic tank. A septic inspection includes looking at the septic tank itself, checking for any cracks or damage.
- The aeration system. This system is responsible for controlling the amount of air in your septic tank. Too much air can negatively affect the processes that occur in the tank, but it’s important to have some air to help break down the solids in your septic tank quickly. Checking the aeration system is an important part of the septic inspection.
- The mechanical components. Your septic system is complex and comes with many different moving parts, including floats, pumps, and other components. During your routine septic inspection, your technician will make sure all of these parts are doing their jobs correctly and your septic system is working properly.
