There are some hidden clues to look for when you are having issues with your cesspool. We say hidden, because unless the sewage is backing up into the home, then most of the issues and clues of a failing septic system is underground.

When starting an inspection, we will map out the location of the cesspool tank and the effluent pump chambers. Once we know these details, we can properly begin the inspection. Typical inspections begin with checking the sludge layer in the septic tank. When we have these measurements, we can then recommend an accurate pumping schedule. This way you can avoid any clogging or build-up. 

Also during our cesspool inspections is a little digging. Test pits in the leach field will show what sort of leaching system is being used. To do this, there is sewer camera technology, which helps to inspect inside the chambers and sewage pipes for cracks, tree roots, or any other obstructions that may be causing problems with the flow. Some septic systems have an elevated effluent disposal area. What that means is that special equipment will be needed to make it function properly.

In a nutshell, sewage is pumped up using this effluent pump. And these pumps can break if not taken care of properly or neglected. Elevated EDA systems also have check valves and high-level alarm senors as safeguards. And also to prevent any sewage backup into the home. So when we inspect the cesspool system, we will always look at the effluent pumps, alarms and cleaning of pump chambers.

We document all of our findings into a report. Once we have an understanding of the problem after the inspection, we can then recommend a course of action. This can be the regular pumping schedule if everything looks to be in order. Or something more substantial if need be.

Cesspool Inspection Preparation

Before any cesspool inspection, it is wise to reach out to have someone look at the tank and repair any areas needing repairs. This way you will pass the inspection. In order to help to prepare, you can get any past installation and maintenance records. This will help us better understand the health of your septic tank. These documents can also provide a history of the tank and any previous problems it may have had in the past.

It is also wise to create a budget for any potential items you might need to replace. These items can include leach pipes, water pipes, or even the septic tank itself. Budgeting out the problem areas will help you financially in case there are extensive repairs, or if you need a complete overhauling of the leach field. If your leach field is leaking, then you need to begin reducing your water use drastically in order to allow for the field to drain and recover.
