Whether you own or manage a residential or commercial property, an annual building maintenance routine can save you a lot of money and prevent significant damage. If you have a septic tank system, it is crucial to inspect the system once a year. Here are a few reasons why it’s important to make septic tank inspections part of your building maintenance routine:
- Health reasons
If your septic tank fails, waste can seep into the ground surfaces and come into contact with nearby water supplies. This wastewater may contain bacteria that can lead to illnesses such as cholera, hepatitis A, gastrointestinal diseases, and more. If you are an employer, you could be liable for the health consequences that the occupants of your building suffer because of a faulty septic tank.
- Financial Impacts to your business
If your septic tank fails, your ability to conduct business will be impacted: the smell and health risks will influence customers or client’s willingness to visit your business. This can have long term effects on your business.
- Spot small problems before they become big issues
If you need to call a 24-hour emergency plumbing company, then you already have a problem on your hands. The good news is that a regular inspection will enable an experienced plumber to pick up on small developing issues before it results in a huge septic tank failure.
- Increase the lifespan of your system and improve performance
As with any plumbing inspection and maintenance task, a routine septic tank inspection can extend the lifespan of your system and improve its efficiency as well. During these inspections, plumbers can spot small issues and advise you to:
- Repair, or
- Chemically balance your system. This will lead to the better performance of your system.
