A working septic system is one of the most important elements of a property. While plumbing doesn’t draw much attention when it’s working well, it’s nearly impossible to manage toilets that back up and sewage leaking into your yard. These are serious health concerns, and the repairs can get expensive. It’s best if you head them off early with regular septic inspections in and around Camillus.

Consider what an inspection can bring to light:

  • Capacity warnings
  • Cracks in the tank
  • Worn or broken baffles
  • Ruptured pipes
  • Clogs
  • Absorption field contamination

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Syracuse can keep your plumbing in good working order. A periodic septic system check in Camillus ensures everything is capable of doing its job now and in the future. However, if there are worn parts, clogs or other problems, you’ll get a heads up before your septic system fails. An inspection will also let you know if it’s time to drain your tank.

When Should You Schedule a Septic Tank Check?

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to septic system maintenance. Every household is different. The number of people living in your home, the size and condition of your tank and other factors have a big impact on your inspection schedule. A general rule is to have a licensed plumber with septic experience take a look every one to three years, but your Mr. Rooter professional can help you establish the right schedule for your system’s maintenance plan.

You’ll also want to schedule an inspection before the sale or purchase of the home. This helps home sellers present an accurate picture of their system to potential buyers and avoid contract hiccups near closing. For buyers, it ensures you’ve been given the right information and that the system is prepared for the demands of your family. That’s especially important if you have a larger family than the current owners.

Regular septic tank inspections in and around Camillus help you avoid:

  • Septic overflow
  • Drain field contamination
  • Potential health problems
  • Massive fines
  • Expensive repair bills

Homeowners don’t always realize the impact of neglecting a septic system. It’s not just an issue of enjoying your property to its fullest or having the convenience of indoor plumbing. A leaking septic tank can contaminate the water supply around your home.
