Regular septic inspections are cheaper than repairing or completely replacing the entire septic system. A poorly functioning or unusable septic tank also lowers the property value of your home.

Issues with the septic system can cause contamination in your home's water supply, including drinking water and swimming pools.

One of the best ways to help others is to make sure your home is in order first. A properly functioning septic tank prevents the spread of infection and disease via water sources to wildlife, farm animals, and other people.

What Is A Septic Inspection


A septic inspection is a thorough evaluation of a septic system to determine its current condition and identify any potential issues. The inspection usually involves a visual examination of the tank, drain field, and related components, as well as testing to assess the system 's ability to properly process and dispose of waste.

How Often Should A Septic System Be Inspected?


Septic systems should be inspected every 3-5 years by a licensed professional, depending on factors such as the size of the tank, the number of occupants in the home, and the age of the system.

What Does A Septic Inspection Cost?


The cost of a septic inspection varies depending on the location, size of the system, and the complexity of the inspection. Contact our septic experts at Goebel for an estimate.

What Happens During A Septic Inspection?


During a septic inspection the inspector will visually examine the tank and sludge levels, and drain field area, check the pump, and clean baffles and filters.

What Are Some Signs That A Spetic Inspection Is Needed?


Slow drains, foul odors, wet spots or standing water near the drain field, or sewage backups in the home are signs that a septic inspection is needed. If it has been more than three years since the last septic inspection, it is a good idea to have one performed.

What happens if a septic inspection reveals issues with the system?


If a septic inspection reveals issues with the system, the inspector will provide recommendations for necessary repairs or upgrades. Depending on the severity of the issues, repairs may need to be performed immediately or in the near future to prevent further damage to the system or the environment.
