Septic Tank Evaluation Inspection

If the home has a septic tank, there is an entirely different set of things to inspect. Unlike with a municipal sewer line, having a septic tank means storing sewage underground at your home. Because of this, the septic system must work well.

Malfunctioning septic systems can expose your family to significant health risks. Many people are also nervous that a septic tank will back up into their homes. It is much more likely, though, that it will overflow or leak into the yard. A septic tank percolates liquids slowly then disperses them into a drain field. However, if a septic tank gets too full, the solids can drain out of the container. Along with sounding disgusting, this disaster also leads to foul odors and unsanitary conditions.
