Why have your septic tank inspected?
Septic tank inspection of your system components can prevent damage to soil and water around your home and may also extend the useful life of your system. Without periodic inspections, your system could backup and result in a septic tank failure. The cost to replace a residential septic treatment system could range between $7,000 and $15,000.
