Septic System Inspection - 7 Things the Seller May Not Be Telling You

Poly Septic Tank

Two Components

Class 4 septic systems are divided into two components, the septic tank and the septic field or leaching bed. Waste is piped out of the house into the septic tank, which is essentially a water clarification tank, in which anaerobic bacteria break the waste down into solids (sludge), liquid effluent, and scum.

Septic System

The solids settle to the bottom, the scum floats to the top and the liquid effluent flows through an outlet pipe into a distribution chamber, where it is directed to the septic field. The septic field is an effluent water disposal system, where the liquid is channeled through perforated pipes to different parts of a field of loose gravel.

Septic tank materials that initially float in the scum layer are kept out of the drainage system by an outflow tee or baffle. If the tank is not pumped regularly, the level of solids can rise, and if it approaches the level of the outflow tee, scum and solids can proceed out into the drainage system, clogging the pipes and gravel - and eventually preventing the absorption of the water by the surrounding earth.

A Class 5 septic system is a holding tank for the storage of sewage at the site where it is produced. A typical holding tank system is comprised of a single compartment tank with a pump-out stack and an audible or visual warning device to alert the homeowner when the tank requires emptying. A holding tank is costly to operate, places restrictions of the owner, and is dependent on Class 7 (hauled) sewage system for waste collection and disposal.

General Guidelines for Purchasers

  • If the system is 5-7 years old and has never been pumped it is unlikely that there are serious problems.
  • If there is no record of the system having been pumped but the owner has a vague recollection of pumping the system at some time in the distant past, figure that it has never been pumped.
  • If the system is over 10 years old and has never been pumped, it is possible that there has been some damage to the septic field, and if it's not been pumped for over 15 years it is quite likely.
  • Flushing dye through the system looks good but will only indicate systems that are already seriously clogged, in which case there should already be more obvious signs.
  • Flushing dye may not indicate serious defects or indicate systems that are close to failure but still functional.
  • If you are on a septic system, adding a bedroom, even without adding a bathroom, may mean having to increase the size of the tank and drainage field.

The only way to make an accurate determination of the system is to have a licensed septic contractor perform a tank, distribution chamber and field inspection.

4 Steps to Perfect Septic Inspections

septic care tips

Your septic tank is an important role-player in your plumbing system. It's a large container that's made from concrete, plastic or fiberglass and buried underground, somewhere in your yard. The primary role of your septic tank is to hold all the wastewater that you produce whenever you use your plumbing. Everyday activities such as taking a bath, cooking, cleaning the house or your car, watering the plants or using the toilet all contribute to the amount of sewage that you produce. Another important function that the tank serves is the filtration of sewage wherein solid wastes are separated from the liquid. The liquid will then be transported into the drain field and then treated for future use again. Now with all these being said, you should know that the septic tank can only hold so much sewage. The decomposition of wastewater takes time and the continuous supply of sewage into the tank will sooner or later fill it to the brim. Now when that happens, plumbing problems will arise which may range from slow draining to blockages or worse, backups.

How much is the septic tank pumping cost?

In a report published by Home Advisor, the average cost of septic tank pumping ranges from $455 to $623. However, note that the minimum reported cost is $200 and the maximum is at $840. Remember that plumbing services vary across states and the areas where they are provided. Just consult a professional who can give you an accurate quote for this service. What's important is that you'll set a specific percentage of your budget for a pump-out because it is truly an indispensable maintenance measure that will keep your tank at tip-top shape for the years to come.

 

WELCOME TO OUR FULL SERVICE SEPTIC WEBSITE

Welcome to the Septic Tank Pumping Tampa, Fl website. Tampa Bay Plumbers has been servicing thousands of septic tank systems in Tampa Bay for the past 15 years. We are the absolute best choice when it comes to the lifespaan and longevity of your home’s septic tank system. Septic systems are very important to the health of Floridians. In fact, 2.67 million septic systems are currently operated by nearly 1/3rd of the population. Regular scheduled septic tank pumping is the best way to maintain these systems, and this website will provide details on how to get the most out of your systems. Septic systems are the most economical form of sewage treatment, so long as your system is installed and maintained correctly.

How Septic Tanks Work

The population living in metropolitan areas (who have never had the pleasure of maintaining a septic system, or who have never experienced waddling in their leachfield, or even had the experience of pumping out their systems) simply flush their toilets.

Those of us living in more rural areas have been forced to learn about the maintenance and working of the sewerage treatment facility attached to our home, “the septic system.” Usually a septic tank is connected to a drainage field or seepage pit of some kind. If properly maintained, a well-designed system will last almost indefinitely. However, if it is neglected for too long a time, it can back up and clog the drainage field. This neglect can result in an expensive excavation and even a replacement of the drainpipes that could cost thousands of dollars.

Failing Drain Field?

What can you do to increase the lifespan?

When a drain field fails it stops accepting water and the septic tank fills all the way up. Once this happens the house backs up and toilets can overflow with sewage. So why does the drain field fail in the first place?  Most of the time it is due to the materials used for construction and the quality of the workmanship.  We tear out more failing EZFlow systems than any other.  In fact, Tampa Bay Plumbers finds many EZFlow systems failing in less than 5 years of service.

Rock, gravel, and pipe systems last for a very long time and are still in service today.  They are no longer commonly installed in Florida last up to 50+ years.  Most of the quality systems you see today are made using chamber materials and septic quality sand.  The chambers are easy to install and provide a massive volume of water to allow the ground time to percolate all of the wastewater produced in your home or business.  Tampa Bay Plumbers uses this chamber style installation on all of its septic repairs because we never tear them out!  Best Septic Tank Pumping Services – Tampa FL | Septic Cleaning Costs.
