A healthy septic system makes for a happy home
If you own a home or are planning to buy one in the Treasure Coast of South Florida, the odds are good that there is a septic tank installed instead of city hook up. Proper upkeep and inspection of your septic system will keep any smelly surprises from ruining your cookout or party. Before you finalize that home purchase, it is best to verify if you have a system and have an inspection done. For over 50 years our team of licensed professionals have been installing and inspecting septic systems throughout the area.
Stop the problem before it starts
Nothing can be worse than having a backed up septic system. The smell and horrible mess compounded with a ruined backyard can send you over the edge. Your system needs to be drained every 3-5 years to ensure sludge doesn’t back up into your drain field. If you can’t remember the last time your septic tank was drained or are buying a home that has one, Quick… Call Cooke’s! Give yourself peace of mind knowing that your septic tank is trouble free with a quick and simple septic system inspection by one of our trained and licensed professionals.
Look for warning signs that your septic tank is in trouble
A septic inspection may be in order if any of the following signs start to appear and most likely indicate a problem that should be diagnosed with a thorough inspection:
- unpleasant odors in your home or yard
- standing water above your septic tank
- slow drainage of water in your sinks
There are also a few things that can add to potential problems with your septic system
- Tank size and age
- A large number of people living in your home
- Improper items flushed down the toilet
- Pouring grease down the sink
