In rural areas like Boulder and throughout Northern Colorado, it is important to provide residents with clean, safe, and efficient septic tank services. At NoCo Septic, our team specializes in residential septic system inspections to properly assess the health of your system. If you cannot remember the last time your septic tank was inspected or if you just moved into a new property with a septic system, it is time to let the professionals at NoCo Septic provide you with a quality residential septic inspection.
How a Septic Inspection Is Conducted
At NoCo Septic, we provide our residential customers with thorough septic system inspections that cover a variety of points. We take our time with every inspection we perform so we can ensure that everything is in proper working condition and does not need to be repaired or replaced. To aid us in our inspections, we use industry-leading cameras to inspect your septic system, diagnose any problems, and prevent future ones.
Our septic inspection process consists of:
- Review of historical permitting documents: We want to understand the entirety of your existing septic system serving your Boulder property. The original permit commonly provides the date of installation, which indicates how old the system is, the size of the septic tank, and the size of the soil treatment area as well as their general locations on the property. This is extremely beneficial especially if you are unsure where your septic system is located on your property. Our team will even record the septic system data for future reference.
- Inspection of the septic system: Your septic tank contains critical components that protect the soil treatment area, also known as the leach field. The inlet, mid-tank, and outlet baffles are inspected for condition and to ensure they are securely fastened to the septic tank. We will specifically note the operating level of the septic tank. If it is too high, this could be a sign of a struggling soil treatment area and could cause backups inside your home. If the septic tank is below its normal operating level, this could be an indicator that the tank is not watertight and is leaking into the earth surrounding it. We also want to measure the sludge that has accumulated inside the septic tank before pumping. In order to thoroughly inspect your entire septic system, we use a high-definition camera that provides us with a live feed revealing all blockages, breaks, clogs, cracks, or buildup within your system.
- Hydraulic load test: The hydraulic load test is conducted at the time of inspection to confirm the operating level of the septic tank remains at a normal level during usage. We will operate multiple water fixtures inside the home to replicate indoor water usage. If the tank water level rises, this could be a sign that the soil treatment area is in need of repairs.
- Septic pumping: We pump the septic tank to remove all liquid and sludge. It is a service that is a requirement for many Boulder and Northern Colorado counties. This allows NoCo Septic’s trained technicians to complete a structural assessment of the septic tank, which involves checking for structural imperfections within the tank such as cracks and corrosion.
- Soil treatment area: The soil treatment area provides the final polishing of the wastewater before it enters groundwater. Inspecting your soil treatment area is critical to protecting environmental health as it disposes of your waste. The soil treatment area is visually inspected for saturation and your monitoring pipes are checked. The system is probed to identify saturation within the field, and once it is completed, we can establish potential problems that could arise.
Throughout all the steps of your residential septic inspection, we will be detailed in communicating exactly what we find and what needs to be accomplished to ensure the longevity of your residential septic system.
Signs You Might Need Residential Septic Inspection
You utilize your septic system on a daily basis and it’s always a great idea to remain proactive about its health. Because of its frequent usage, there are a variety of reasons your septic system could require an inspection.
Common signs you should contact NoCo Septic to inspect your septic system include:
- Your property has slow-flushing drains: This could mean that you have a clog or blockage within your septic system. If you leave a clog unattended, it could eventually become a larger issue that will require costly repairs.
- Your property is experiencing sewer backup: Sewer backups are quite dangerous because they expose your family, pets, and surrounding environment to toxic waste and oftentimes foul odors.
While these are not the only reasons you might require septic inspection, especially with a camera, they do help you identify when it is time to call NoCo Septic for assistance.
