What to Know About Septic Inspections

Are you wondering how septic inspections work? If you are buying a home with a septic tank, there are some things you need to be aware of. If you are selling your home, you could need an inspection of the septic system.

Household septic tanks are typically pumped every three to five years. Alternative systems with electrical float switches, pumps, or mechanical components should be inspected more often, generally once a year.

If the tank is not pumped, the solids will build up in the tank and the holding capacity of the tank will be diminished. Eventually, the solids will reach the pipe that feeds into the drain field, causing a clog. Wastewater backing up into the house.

How can you tell if your septic tank is full?
  • You have trouble flushing your toilet, or it’s constantly backing up.
  • Your pipes make a gurgling sound or drain very slowly.
  • Your lawn is suddenly growing lush, green grass.
  • Water starts to pool in your yard.
  • Your home or yard smells like… well, sewage.
  • Sewage backup in the drains.

I just want to thank you! I cannot say enough good things about your company. I appreciate your service. Prompt and professional service and I have a better understanding of my home! Very courteous service!

I have used Ground Zero Home Inspections for two of my properties.  As an investor, it's not easy to get a full understanding of what we are facing considering we are out of the state of the true repair condition of the homes we are prospecting. Their professionalism, knowledge, thoroughness, and fast response are second to none. I have used Ground Zero Home Inspections services for my home and business. Great job and inspectors.

I am very pleased with the service I received, from the initial contact with your personnel to the technicians that handled my problems. It is great to deal with a company that values its customers. The report looked to be scary but that was apparently due to my inexperience with the project.  They were able to find the right company for us. Thanks.
