This should be done every 1 to 3 years ensure a continually proper working tank, depending on the type of system that is used. When a home is to be sold it should also be inspected as well, if it has not been done within the last year.

The professional that is to inspect the tank should be provided with the location of the tank and the date of the last pumping. Other items that will be inspected are as follows:

  • Sludge levels
  • How far the drain field is from wells and streams
  • Ensure it is big enough for the home
  • Inspect the riser lids
  • Make sure baffles are firmly connected to tank and pipes.
  • Check to ensure that waste water has not surfaced to the ground.

Inspections can let an owner know if the tank needs to be pumped or replaced as well due to a faulty system or a broken component. If a septic system is cracked, it can be hazardous to any residents, guests, pets, as well as the inspector.
