Your septic system is one of many systems in your home that you do not typically pay much mind to when it’s working well. That doesn’t mean that your septic system is something you should ignore. There could be a small problem in your septic system that is just waiting to become a big one. You can avoid this by scheduling a septic inspection in Skaneateles, NY, with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Syracuse.

What Is a Septic Maintenance Inspection?

Your septic maintenance inspection in Skaneateles will involve a full examination of your septic tank, inlets, outlets and piping. We will:

  • Check the level of your tank
  • Look for any holes, cracks or other leaking opportunities
  • Make sure the tank covers are firmly attached to prevent rainwater penetration
  • Adjust water levels if necessary
  • Check the drain field flow back

We will also do any basic maintenance that the manufacturer requires.

While small leaks may not be troubling you now, they can put stress on your system and turn into big leaks. Any type of leak can lead to sewage escaping from your septic system, which can pollute the land and the groundwater around your home. This can create a serious health hazard for you, your family, your pets and even your neighbors, so it is important to resolve these issues early on.

Problems That a Septic Maintenance Inspection Can Prevent

By inspecting your system and doing necessary maintenance now, we can fix leaks that could be allowing sewage contaminants to leach into your groundwater, help you avoid tank overflow, ruptured pipes or sewage backups and otherwise help prevent drain field contamination and septic overflow. A little bit of preventative maintenance now can help you avoid a repair later that could cost you 10 or 20 times as much to fix, not to mention local fines you may face for failure to properly keep up your septic system.

How Often Should You Have a Septic Inspection Done?

We generally recommend that you have us inspect your septic system in Skaneateles, NY, at least once a year. If you are especially concerned about potential septic system issues, it is fine to call us twice a year or at the beginning of each season for a thorough septic system inspection to make sure everything is running as it should.
