Signs You May Need a Septic System Inspection in Oregon

Your septic system should be inspected every few years, even if you detect no obvious problems. You will also probably need to get an inspection if you are planning to sell your home. However, there are some warning signs that may signal the need for an immediate inspection.

Consider getting a septic system inspection if you notice:

  • Frequent drainage issues. A high volume of plumbing backups may indicate a minor or serious septic system issue.
  • Inconsistent grass pigment. If the patch of grass located near your septic system appears greener or more vibrant than the surrounding grass, your septic system may be failing. The tank may consequently be outputting an excess amount of water into the nearest plant life.
  • Foul odors. If you notice unpleasant smells emanating from your septic tank or pipes anywhere on your property, you should seek an inspection.
  • Puddles of unknown origin. Puddles will sometimes accumulate after a rainstorm, but standing water building up near your septic system may suggest a dangerous toxicity issue.
