Certifications & Inspections
One of the best ways to ensure the longevity of your septic tank is to make sure yearly inspections are conducted, in addition to regularly scheduled pumpings and cleanings. As part of our inspection services we assist clients with the necessary information on how they can best perform preventative maintenance that will ensure the lifespan of the tank. During the inspection, we make note of any potentially hazardous problems, as well as offer our comprehensive services in addressing the issue. Our experts are also fully licensed to conduct government mandated certifications that report on the status of a septic system.
Aside from septic tank pumpings and cleanings that need to be conducted every three to five years, there is some simple maintenance that a septic tank needs to ensure the performance of the system. One of the biggest factors is being aware of how the tank maintains its equilibrium, taking steps to minimize the introduction of harsh chemicals that upset the bacterial balance. This includes grey water from appliances like washers and garbage disposals that contribute an influx of sanitizing products as well as oils and grease. Aside from monitoring waste contribution, having our team of professionals conduct pump outs and cleaning, maintains system health and helps avoid breakages.
During a yearly inspection, our team comes on site to evaluate the health of a septic system. We monitor water and waste levels of the tank, as well as looking for other signs of potential failure. If sewage levels are high, we are prepared to provide the necessary pumping services for the tank. In addition, we inspect leach fields and field lines to make sure they are free from system impeding clogs. We inspect both the indoor and outdoor components of the equipment including piping, risers and access covers, as well as making sure there are no potential leaks anywhere in the system.
While clients may notice problems with their tank prior to an inspection, our professionals can identify problems that may not be as apparent to the untrained eye. When waste levels exceed the anticipated amount, or there is a significant build up of solids, our St. George septic service provides the pump out and cleaning services needed to keep the system on track. We check the structural integrity of the tank, monitoring for cracks that can cause potentially hazardous leaks. Our technicians offer the services to repair, replace or complete a new install of float switches, field lines, lift stations and risers, among other key system components.
Because septic systems are such a delicate environment, having a septic tank requires reports on the system’s health and safety. Health Departments often require periodic updates on the system’s status, as well as verifying the safety of the system before selling property. Our company is licensed to perform certifications where we ascertain property details as well as visually inspecting tank levels and performing a water load test. We investigate the tanks structural integrity, as well as that of the main piping lines, including the exit outlets. As a full service business, we also help clients with the paperwork needed for these certifications.
