Unfortunately, many NJ septic inspections come as a result of a serious malfunction. Many homeowners feel that if their fixtures drain well, there are no problems with the system. Nothing could be further from the truth. There could be problems, and untreated sewage can pose a major health hazard.
There are several ways, however, that current homeowners can detect problems with their septic system even before a NJ septic inspection company is called. If you want to prevent catastrophic breakdowns of your septic system, be on the look out for a few key signals that your system may be malfunctioning.
- Slow flushing toilets
- Sewage backup into the home
- Strong sewage odors inside or outside the home
- Standing or ponding of contaminated ground-water outside your home
It’s easy NOT to want to think about problems with your septic system. Sometimes a problem or malfunction isn’t that simple to detect. But, if trouble is brewing within your system, early detection is the best way to avoid a messy and costly situation.
Periodic maintenance is the key to extending the life of your septic system and preventing those costly repairs. The accumulated sludge and scum from septic tanks should be pumped a minimum of every three years, or more frequently if your household consists of four people or more.
