What Do We Look For?
These inspections are generally used to identify potential problems with your system. Here's a few of the different things that we look at while performing this service. We'll generally start by first finding the septic tank itself and then finding the last date it was pumped. Using a "sludge judge" we can give you a better estimate on how often you want to be pumping your tank as well as measure the efficiency of aerobic systems. We'll also ensure that the system is large enough for the home. For example, a four-bedroom house is going to need a tank that holds at least 1,200 gallons. The more people living in the space, the bigger the container.
We'll also inspect the surrounding property for any waste or effluent that has made its way to the surface. This will help indicate whether or not the system is overflowing and the drain field failing. During our septic inspection near Salt Lake and Utah County, we'll go ahead and check to see whether or not each of the perforated pipes is receiving the same amount of liquid. They can generally be checked by opening what's called the distribution box. If this box has shifted or become clogged, it will affect where the effluent is flowing and potentially flood sections of the drain field.
How Much Does A Septic System Inspection Cost In SLC?
Depending on the location of your home it will generally cost you anywhere from $100-$250 per service. An additional fee may be charged if we're required to dig up the opening of your tank and distribution box. However, we can often pair this service when you plan on pumping out your tank. This helps us lower expenses and offer you the fairest price possible.

How Long does it take?
A septic inspection in Salt Lake City Utah generally doesn't take more than an hour or two. We're simply scanning the property, the tank, and the drain field. However, if we do notice that the tank needs pumped or a repair needs to be made, we'll often spend a little more time taking care of those things as well.
can you take care of any problems right on the spot?
Of course! While this does depend on the tools and equipment we brought with us, we can generally pair any septic tank inspections in SLC with repairs and other services. It's actually preferable for us to do the inspection while pumping out the tank, as we can then see the bottom of the tank as well. If we need to replace the leach field or install a new container, we may be required to first speak with a surveyor and dig out any trenches, meaning that we won't be able to get everything done in the same day as the septic system inspection. However, we'll do our best to get you back up and running as soon as possible!
Do I Really Need an inspection?
Yes. We generally recommend that you have your tank inspected at least once a year. This allows you as a homeowner to carefully monitor the condition of your system and make any fixes or pump before major damage or problems arise. When it comes to caring for your home or business, an annual septic inspection in Salt Lake City is a must!
