We recommend septic tank inspections be done annually or before closing on a new property.
Does your septic tank pumping company include septic tank inspections in their visits? If they don’t, you should be concerned. At Quality Septic Inc., we have seen our fair share of septic systems that prematurely failed that wouldn’t have if the problem had been discovered and resolved sooner. In fact, we are so convinced of the importance of septic tank inspections that we offer them even when it isn’t yet time for septic tank pumping. We even recommend that you put this maintenance task on your calendar each year if you want complete peace of mind that your septic tank will continue to perform properly and for as long as possible.
Septic tank inspections are also something we recommend before you close on a residential or commercial property you have under contract. All real estate purchase contracts provide the buyer with a period of time when they are permitted to have various inspections performed. If a problem is found, the buyer then has various options, such as cancelling the agreement or negotiating with the seller to have them resolve the issue. If the problem is minor, you might feel comfortable handling it yourself, but if it is major, you don’t want to face that a few months after you close. Septic tank inspections give you the information you need so you can proceed in whatever manner is in your best interests.
