tMany homes, businesses, and industrial settings use septic tanks throughout Connecticut.
When you need expert septic tank services in Northford, we’re here to answer your questions:
How Often Should I Get an Inspection?
A full septic inspection can only be completed after your tank is pumped. This means you should get an assessment every three to five years or before you sell or buy a home with a septic tank.
What Are the Signs That My Septic System Needs Inspection?
Signs that your septic system needs inspection include slow drains, bad odors, gurgling noises, pooling water, lush grass near the tank, sewage backup, high nitrate levels in well water, standing water, increased utility bills, and unexplained health issues.
What Happens During an Inspection?
If you need an inspection without your tank being pumped, it typically only includes checking the age of the system and its recent maintenance. This usually consists of a pressure check by turning on various plumbing fixtures and a simple drain field inspection.
A more in-depth review is completed after a tank is pumped. A drained tank allows our experts to monitor how water flows from the home and if there’s backflow between the drain field and the tank. This indicates more significant problems like blockages or collapsed pipes that need repair.
How Much Does an Inspection Cost?
Depending on the size of your tank and the depth of the inspection, these services can cost between $500-$1,000. Though this seems like a high cost, it provides the peace of mind you need for years to come.
Why Should I Get an Inspection Before Buying a Home?
Your city or loan provider may require a septic inspection before you buy a home. If it isn’t required, an inspection can help you know what repairs or services your system may need in the near future and provide confidence that this home is right for you.
