We can give you the information you need to know about your septic system.
There are several important systems that allow a home to function properly. For instance, the septic system is vital for dealing with wastewater that comes from the home, but since it’s out of sight, it’s often out of mind. The good news is that our team at Precision Home Inspection knows all about these systems and can provide a professional septic system inspection to ensure that your home has a system that is in good working order.
A septic system is like an on-site wastewater treatment plant that takes care of and cleans up the sewage from a home. Municipal sewer systems take wastewater to a central treatment plant, but septic systems do their work right on the property. There are many parts to the septic system, including a septic tank and a drain field. When they work right, they break down and filter waste gently and effectively, putting clean water back into the soil. When they aren’t working as well, the effect can be costly.
For instance, sludge and scum can build up in the septic tank over time, making it less effective and able to hold more waste. This growth can cause backups, clogs, and even shut down the system. With a septic system inspection, you’ll know the current condition of your septic tank and what steps need to be taken for it to work well.
