Septic Inspection

The septic system is a lifesaver for the 20 percent of homeowners whose home is not connected to a centralized sewer system. While this relieves you from paying monthly sewer bills, the responsibility of maintaining the septic system falls squarely on your shoulders. Regular inspections, typically every 3-5 years, are essential to ensure the system is functioning properly and to catch any minor issues before they become major problems. Call Rooter Man Plumbing to schedule a septic inspection in Reno today. Our team is on standby for your call.

When to Schedule a Septic Inspection

It's crucial to have a septic inspection when buying a property with a septic system to assess its condition and any potential issues. It’s also important to schedule periodic inspections once every 3 to 5 years, but there are also times to arrange an unscheduled inspection.
If you notice signs of septic system issues, such as slow drains, foul odors, or soggy areas near the drain field, scheduling an inspection is advisable to diagnose the problem. Further, if there have been changes in water usage, such as an increase in household members, then it's also a good time for an inspection to determine if the septic system can handle the additional load.
Finally, if your septic system is reaching its expected lifespan, it's wise to schedule more frequent inspections to assess its condition and ensure it continues to function optimally.

What Goes into a Septic Inspection?

A septic inspection is a critical part of septic system maintenance and involves a thorough examination of the system's components to ensure they are functioning properly and in compliance with local regulations. The common points of focus during a septic inspection include:

  • Septic Tank: The septic inspector assesses the condition of the septic tank, checking for any visible signs of damage, such as cracks, corrosion, or leaks. They may also measure the depth of scum and sludge layers to determine if the tank needs pumping.
  • Drain Field Evaluation: The drain field is inspected for signs of ponding, soggy ground, or foul odors, which can indicate drainage problems or system failure. The inspector ensures that the effluent distribution system is working correctly, distributing wastewater evenly to the drain field.
  • Soil Assessment: The soil surrounding the septic system is evaluated for signs of compaction or contamination, which can affect drainage and treatment.
  • Inlet and Outlet Pipes: The pipes leading to and from the septic tank are checked for any damage or blockages, and the condition of the tank's baffles is examined.
  • Electrical Components: If applicable, electrical components, such as pumps or alarms, are inspected to ensure they are functioning properly.

After the inspection, the inspector will prepare a report summarizing the findings and any recommended repairs or maintenance.

We had a busted drain pipe. And we found Rooter Man Plumbing when we were searching for local plumbers in the area. We were having trouble finding someone to come out and fix it. I called the Rooter Man and they showed up the same day and fixed it in less than an hour. Very quick and reliable. Kept their number just in case if we need a plumber later.

Rory got here fairly quick for dinner time on a Saturday night. His actions were even faster for a complicated problem that had waste water backing into a first floor tub. Since it wasn’t our first time, he scoped the problem and gave us an assessment of the necessity for future repairs. Rory is very professional and honest. An Expert Plumber.
