How to Prepare for Your Septic Tank Inspection

snohomish-septic-servicesIt’s important to have regular septic tank inspections. The higher your water usage, the more frequent these checks should occur. So if it’s been a while since you’ve had your system inspected, you may want to consider scheduling an appointment with a certified septic service company soon. There are, however, some things you should do prior to your appointment. By taking a few key steps early, your inspection will run smoother and likely result in a lower bill. Here are 3 ways to prepare for a septic tank inspection.

1. Have Your Septic Tank Design Plans Handy

If you have a copy of your septic tank site plan, it’s a great idea to have this on hand before your septic inspection. Many companies will charge extra if they have to spend time locating your system. This will also help your inspector check your system, as he’ll know better what to look for.

2. Make Sure Your Tank is Easily Accessible

Is your cover underground? Many companies also charge extra for uncovering your septic tank. If you’re able to uncover it yourself, it may be worth the money you can save by doing so.

3. Identify Any Problem Areas to Discuss

The inspection itself is really important, but this would also be a good time to discuss potential problem areas with your septic tank specialist as well. This is the perfect time to discuss issues with your pipes or drains. Most companies want to see your system un-pumped to get a clear idea of how it is functioning, but you may schedule septic plumbing and repair after the inspection.
