Septic System Inspected Amarillo TXYour septic system is an integral part of your home, and without it, your household water wouldn’t be suitable. The main function of a septic tank is to separate the water from the solids, among other things. It’s important that your tank is maintained to a high standard to avoid failure, so at Pratt Plumbing, we advise on having your septic tank regularly inspected. However, how often it is inspected depends on various factors.

Why Should I Have My Tank Inspected?

There are a number of benefits to having your septic tank inspected regularly. If you don’t get it regularly looked at or pumped, your drain field can become corroded or damaged, which results in costly repairs. The number of occupants in your household, the size of the tank, and the amount of use your septic tank undergoes are massive contributing factors to how frequently it should be inspected. Obviously, the higher these are, the more regular inspections should be.

Many different companies advise on different timescales when it comes to a septic tank inspection. In order to find out what servicing you require, and how often, get in touch with a specialist at Pratt Plumbing to establish what needs to be done, and how much this will cost.

Speak to Us about an Inspection

If you are having problems with your septic tank, it’s beneficial to speak to a professional instead of attempting to resolve them yourself. An ‘at-home job’ may result in damage to your tank and may in fact end up costing more in the long run.

At Pratt Plumbing, we can help you with a number of common and specific household plumbing issues. To find out more about what we offer, or to gain a free quote, contact us at (806)-316-5710. We look forward to helping you.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
