When Do I Need a Septic System Inspection?

An annual septic system inspection is recommended for homeowners and commercial locations alike. A septic tank inspection will determine if everything is working properly or if septic system repairs are needed, or if it’s time for septic tank pumping. This sort of annual maintenance can keep your septic system operating for years to come.

If you are thinking about buying or selling a home with a septic system, a septic system inspection can save you a lot of heartache. Typical home inspections only address the indoor plumbing, and not the on- site waste disposal system. Only a licensed septic system contractor like Chavis Septic Services is qualified to inspect your septic system.
