What Kind of Septic Inspection Do You Need In Arlington?

What Kind of Septic Inspection Do You Need In Arlington?

If you wonder what your options are for septic inspection in Arlington, Superior Septic Services can help. We offer professional inspections that are thorough and affordable. We have years of experience installing and repairing septic systems. If you need to have a septic inspection done and are not sure what you need, consider the following:

First Kind – Visual Inspection

When purchasing or selling a home, this is the general inquiry you can get, and a home inspector may handle it. With this inspection, you get questions such as:

  • How old is the home?
  • How often has the septic system been pumped?
  • When was the last inspection?

Toilets are flushed, and water is run in the home to check the water pressure and ensure everything is draining well. The inspector checks out the drain field and looks for standing water. It is basic and fast but doesn’t give you all the answers you may need.

Second Kind – Full Inspection

Everything that is done in a visual inspection gets done, plus a lot more. It would be best to have a full inspection done every 3 – 5 years to ensure your system works properly. With this inspection, the following may happen:

  • Septic tank cover is removed and water levels checked
  • Water is run in the home to check the flow to the tank
  • A dye test may be used to determine drainage
  • Septic tank is pumped
  • The absorption area is checked for backflow
  • The water level is rechecked after pumping

To ensure everything is as it should be with your septic system, we recommend a full septic inspection in Arlington. To find out what other septic services we offer and schedule, your inspection call us at (425) 905-2485.
