Questions To Ask A Septic Tank Professional

When a septic system goes haywire and sewage backs up into the basement or a noxious smell permeates the home, it's important to ask appropriate questions before hiring a professional for the job.

  • What is a septic system?
    It's a self-contained water and waste removal operation for homes and businesses. It treats and transports waste, but occasionally there are backups and other problems. There are many types available depending on the home or business owner's needs.

  • Are you licensed for waste removal?
    A clean storage container or cesspool means a properly running operation. Sewer liquid containing human waste is a biological hazard and can only be removed by someone licensed. Removal by a homeowner or an unlicensed waste hauler is against the law.

  • Will I need a new pump?
    The pump is the heart of a sewage operation and takes the liquid from the home to a storage container or cesspool. It is important to maintain the device, because it can be expensive to replace. It's one of the first places checked by professional for problems.

  • Do I need any permits?
    Sewage overflow is sent to an above ground leach field for disposal into the soil. Some municipalities require a permit to makes sure it is constructed correctly. Aerobic bacteria can be a health hazard to plants and animals.

  • Will I need my tank pumped? Sewer water and sludge can accumulate in the bottom of the tank. Over time, the sludge can become several inches deep and begin causing problems. This liquid and sludge needs routine pumping and disposal as part of proper maintenance.

    When you purchase a home with a septic tank system, rather than having access to the city sewer, there are some questions to ask. First, find out when the septic system was installed and the last time it was tested, pumped and cleaned. Ask about the material of the holding tank, whether plastic, fiberglass, concrete or steel. Find out the size of the septic tank, as well as the leach field to be sure it will keep your home clean and sanitized. The location of the leach field and septic tank is also important to ensure it is not too close to water sources or the property line.

    Before purchasing the home, the septic system should be thoroughly tested and inspected to be sure it is in top working condition. It is also a good idea to ask if there are plans in the neighborhood to move from the septic system to the town's sewer to dispose of water and waste in the near future, since this can cost a significant amount of money. Find out if a cesspool was ever used on the property. If a cesspool was the original septic system, have the grounds around the home inspected for possible pollution.

    If your home is new and under construction, it is also important to ask questions about the septic system and have it thoroughly inspected and tested before moving in. Once you are in the home, your septic system must be properly maintained through regular cleaning, pumping and draining the pipes and system. Problems should be treated quickly so they don't become bigger issues. Whether you have a standard septic system or an aerobic system, the right maintenance will go far in keeping your plumbing clean and problem free.
