Mr Rooter employee greeting a customer.

If your septic system is working properly, you probably don’t think much about it. If it’s not, however, you have a big problem. Toilets can back up, sewage can drain into your yard, and you can end up with an unsanitary, smelly mess. A good way to avoid this type of problem is by scheduling a regular septic inspection.

In Manlius, NY, the company to call for thorough septic maintenance is Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Syracuse.

What Is a Septic Maintenance Inspection?

What exactly will your septic maintenance inspection entail? First, we will check the level of your septic tank to see how full it is. Then we will search your entire system for any potential weaknesses, including any damage to tank inlets and outlets or piping, identifying any cracks or holes in the tank and checking the integrity of the distribution boxes. We will verify that tank covers are securely attached so rainwater cannot get in, check drain field flow back, adjust water levels as necessary, and do any manufacturer-required maintenance.

Even if you are not having a problem with your septic system now, any of the issues above could lead to a big problem later. We can identify and correct small problems before they become big, expensive ones. Once something breaks in your septic system, problems can become much harder and messier to solve and the need for a resolution becomes much more urgent. A good septic maintenance inspection can help prevent all that.

Problems That a Septic Maintenance Inspection Can Prevent

So what kind of problems can a good septic inspection in Manlius, NY, help you avoid? Our septic maintenance can help you ward off sewer backups, leaks and ruptured pipes that can lead to septic overflow and/or drain field contamination. If you have ever had these problems in your home, you know that it is very important to avoid them.

Sewage contamination can cause problems ranging from intolerable odor and health problems to massive fines, not to mention the cost of repairs.

How Often Should You Have a Septic Inspection Done?

You should have your septic system in Manlius inspected at least once every year. This should be enough to identify any potential problems. For peace of mind, some people may prefer to have a septic maintenance inspection done more frequently, such as at the beginning of every season. The sooner you identify and deal with a potential septic tank issue, the less likely it is you will have to deal with big problems later.
