Protecting your property

Inspections are an important part of maintaining your septic system and your first line of defence in preventing issues. Our goal is to address potential problems that can lead to blockages and sewage leaking back into your home, damaging your property and causing serious health and environmental risks.

Often, a yearly inspection can prevent emergency services, costly repair, or full system replacements. We can typically restore your system back to optimal performance and function, if we can fix the problem early on. Our assessments and recommendations address only the services you need – we will never try to sell you a replacement or repair that is not necessary.

What’s Included in a Septic System Inspection

Septic system inspections look into the health and condition of your septic system. When getting an inspection, make sure the company checks the entire system, not just the tank.

A septic system inspection should cover:

  • The tank’s condition and size
  • A complete evaluation of the drain field area
  • Any concerns about landscaping or grading that could impact system operation
  • Issues related to the system size compared to home occupancy
  • The condition of mechanical and plumbing equipment, alarms, etc., with testing and analysis of their performance

The entire system, including its current and potential future usage, needs inspection. Inspectors will review every aspect and recommend any necessary repairs, maintenance, or replacement parts.

A failing septic system can show various issues, from mild signs of aging to severe problems needing immediate attention. Identifying and addressing a problem early is possible. Regular inspection is a good way to catch potential issues before they become larger issues and very costly.

Septic Medic provides on-site assessments, detailed inspections, and comprehensive reports for all residential septic systems.

Comprehensive Testing & Inspection

During our septic system inspection and testing, our certified technicians will check the overall health of the entire system, including your septic tank, drain field, and discharge. We’ll also test pumps, filters, floats, and alarms.

In a complete inspection, we thoroughly analyze the site and generate a report to identify any problems with the septic system. We examine the absorption area, liquid levels, and water flow. Through a full inspection, we can catch issues before they turn into major problems – saving you from significant financial burdens!

When to Schedule a Septic System Inspection

It’s better to have an annual inspection rather than waiting for something to go wrong. Some provinces require homeowners to have qualified technicians inspect their septic systems annually for insurance purposes. Homeowners can use these inspections to catch problems before they become major issues.

The lifespan of a septic drainfield depends on factors like soil, system type, and construction. Annual inspections can alert homeowners to soil issues, preventing expensive replacements due to the system aging out and extending the overall lifespan of the septic system.

The Price of a Septic System Inspection

Typically, septic system inspections range from $249 to $699, depending on how much information is required about your system and if you need detailed reports.

Some clients request a walk-and-talk inspection with our inspector, where they can hear recommendations, discuss findings, and learn about their system. This way, as a homeowner, you can take proactive steps without dealing with unnecessary paperwork.

You receive the inspection report after the inspection, and once you’re a client, we’re available to help with any and all your septic concerns.

What Happens After a Septic Inspection

After the inspection, you’ll want to review your system and its operation against current codes and standards, as well as the original system’s intended operation. If your system worked previously, we can typically restore it to its previous performance without suggesting a replacement.

Despite good intentions, not every septic inspection reveals a system in perfect working order. Some components may need repair or replacement. To ensure everything identified in the inspection is taken care of, you can directly schedule your maintenance appointment with Septic Medic.
