What necessitates septic tank inspections in Tacoma?
It’s important to note that even a properly functioning septic tank should be inspected at least once a year. That’s because a septic system receives unwanted solids and waste water to treat and dispose it from the plumbing system of a building continuously. Solid waste is broken down partially into sludge in the tank and separated from scum and effluent. While effluent leaves the tank and it’s eventually filtered by bacteria in the drain field naturally, sludge and scum must be pumped out regularly. This sludge and scum combined with external factors can damage the tank. And, if a small damage is not detected and fixed on time, it becomes a serious septic problem with time. Fortunately, many septic problems can be detected and fixed during regular inspections. This ensures that a building has a properly functioning waste management system which enhances its value. Regular and proper inspection and maintenance of a septic system is also important because it enables you to avoid liability issues that may arise from a malfunctioned system. When selling a property, it’s also advisable to have its septic tank inspected and repaired if necessary before you put it up for sale in the market. That’s because some prospective buyers insist on having the system inspected before they buy a home if no recent inspection has been done.
