FAQs on Septic Inspections

A septic inspection is a thorough evaluation of a property’s septic system to ensure its proper functioning and compliance with regulations. The process typically involves locating and exposing the septic tank, assessing its structural integrity, and measuring the sludge and scum levels.

The drain field is inspected for signs of saturation or clogging. Professionals may use dye tests to identify leaks and evaluate the system’s capacity.

The inspection also considers factors like tree roots encroachment, which can damage pipes, and checks the overall system’s age and maintenance history. The goal is to identify potential issues, such as leaks, blockages, or system overload, preventing future problems and ensuring the efficient and environmentally sound operation of the septic system. A comprehensive septic inspection is crucial for maintaining a property’s sanitation, preventing environmental contamination, and complying with local health regulations.

A septic inspection is often required and is a crucial aspect of responsible property ownership. Many local health departments and regulatory bodies mandate regular septic inspections to ensure the proper functioning of the system and to safeguard public health and the environment.

These inspections are typically required during property transactions, such as buying or selling a home, and may be necessary for obtaining certain permits. 

Regular inspections help identify potential issues early, preventing costly and disruptive septic system failures. They contribute to environmental protection by ensuring that wastewater is properly treated and does not pose a risk to groundwater or nearby water bodies. Even in the absence of mandatory regulations, proactively scheduling septic inspections is advisable to maintain the longevity and effectiveness of the system, providing peace of mind for property owners and promoting overall community well-being.

Hiring a professional for septic system installation is essential for several reasons.

First and foremost, septic systems are intricate, requiring expertise in soil analysis, system design, and adherence to local regulations. Professionals possess the knowledge to choose an appropriate location, assess soil conditions, and determine the system’s size and type based on the property’s specific needs.

They ensure proper installation, including tank placement, piping, and the drain field, crucial for optimal functionality and longevity. 

Professionals are also well-versed in obtaining necessary permits and complying with environmental and health regulations, avoiding legal issues and potential fines. DIY installations risk errors that can lead to system failures, environmental contamination, and costly repairs. Investing in professional installation not only guarantees a well-functioning septic system but also provides peace of mind, knowing that the installation meets industry standards and local requirements.

The ideal septic system for residential use depends on various factors, including soil type, property size, and local regulations.



  • Conventional gravity systems are common and work well in areas with suitable soil conditions.
  • For challenging terrains or limited space, advanced systems like aerobic treatment units or mound systems may be more appropriate, offering enhanced treatment capabilities.
  • Low-pressure dosing systems ensure efficient wastewater distribution.

Choosing the best system requires a professional site assessment to determine soil permeability, water table levels, and space constraints. Local health department guidelines play a crucial role in system selection. Collaborating with a certified septic professional ensures the tailored design and installation of a system that meets specific residential needs, ensuring effective wastewater treatment and long-term functionality while complying with regulatory standards.

Needed A1 again due to a small pinhole leak in a copper pipe that was discovered late in the evening. Went online and requested an appointment for the next day. Received a phone call the next morning confirming I was scheduled for that day, and that it would be before noon. They arrived as scheduled, and fixed the leak. Thanks, again!(Previous Post)Our hot water tank went suddenly. One call to A1 Plumbing and someone was there that day to assist with fixing the issue. Really appreciate the notifications we received advising when someone was on their way and giving us an approximate arrival time. Great Service!We recently had a second great experience with A1 Plumbing. We had an older metal section of our kitchen sink drain pipe leak. Of course, we discovered the leak on the weekend. Their after hours service help guide us to a temporary solution, but did offer to come on the weekend to fix it. We utilized the temporary solution, and a technician arrived early Monday morning to fix the problem. Thanks again for the quick response!

If I could give a 10 star review I would.I called on a Monday, they came the Tuesday to assess the job (leaking well and fried wiring) then returned the next day with an excavator to complete the work.The two Mikes did a fantastic job. I knew it would be a difficult one because the saturated ground is just full of rock, welcome to PEC!All was going great until our local junkie lunatic decided to steal one of their work trucks from my driveway.Tail gate open, cap doors open, dropping a plethora of plumbing items as she sped off down the road. Including a motorcycle helmet belonging to another A-1 employee who came by to drop off a couple of fittings.Little did the crackhead know, I have security cameras and resulting video was of great interest to the OPP officer who attended possibly the most ridiculous crime ever committed in Rednersville.With everyone on scene in a state of complete and utter disbelief and now short on tools and supplies, the two Mikes still managed to complete the work. Thank you so much guys!You’re the best.
Natalie N.
