Your Septic & Excavation Questions — Answered!

Q: What is a Septic System Inspection?

A: A septic inspection means having a certified, knowledgeable person inspect the performance and location of a septic system. This information goes into a report that is submitted alongside an accurate drawing of the system and the location of its components. The report also states how the system has performed up to the date of the report and forecasts future performance based on the system’s anticipated usage.


Q: Why do an Inspection on a Septic System?

A: There are several key reasons to request an inspection, such as:

  • Gain Information before a Home Sale or Purchase
  • Prevent Unexpected, Hazardous, or Expensive Emergencies
  • Find Ways to Improve the System
  • Find a Malfunction within the System
  • Determine Maintenance Needs


Other reasons to request an inspection may include building permit requests, house addition inquiries, and locating components for landscaping purposes.


Q: What is Involved in Septic Maintenance?

A: Like many things, if a septic system isn’t maintained, it will eventually fail. Even on new, state-of-the-art systems, maintenance is required to keep it in proper working order. Some common maintenance tasks include:

  • Inlet & Outlet Checks
  • Tank & Pump Checks
  • Filter Cleaning/Changes
  • Tank Sludge & Biomat Measurements
  • Electrical Connection Tests
  • Flow Calculation Checks
  • Line & Dispersal Pipe Flushing
  • Effluent Sampling Tests
  • Securing & Fastening Components


After completing maintenance, you will receive a report that details the work completed, system performance, and suggestions for future improvements.
