How Often Should You Get An Oviedo Septic Inspection?

When was the last time you had an Oviedo septic inspection? If you don’t remember or don’t know how often you need to get your septic system inspected, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 


How Often Should I Get An Oviedo Septic Inspection?

Every savvy homeowner knows the importance of occasionally getting an Oviedo septic inspection to identify any hidden problems and avoid costly repairs down the line. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average household septic system should be inspected every three years by a septic service professional. Household septic tanks are typically pumped every three to five years. Alternative systems with electrical float switches, pumps, or mechanical components should be inspected more often, generally once a year. A service contract is important since alternative systems have mechanized parts.

Here are the four major factors that influence the frequency of septic pumping:

  • Household size
  • Total wastewater generated
  • The volume of solids in wastewater
  • Septic tank size

How To Prepare For An Oviedo Septic Inspection

During an Oviedo septic inspection, our highly trained staff will pump the tank beforehand to get a clear view of the entire septic tank. This will allow us to inspect the physical condition of your septic tank below the waste level. Here’s what you can do to prepare for the pumping process:

  • Stop all water usage: if you notice foul odors coming from your drain field or gurgling drains, be sure not to put anything down the drain until we come to the rescue. 
  • Locate your septic components: go outside and identify exactly where the septic system lives so that you can inform the technician when they arrive. 
  • Clear the path: if you’ve been putting off yard work, now is the best time to get it cleaned up – or at least clear a path for our team! Any debris that is currently covering your septic tank can potentially get inside your system when our technicians go to open it up, causing catastrophic damage to the internal components.
