Do you own a home with a septic tank?
Septic tanks are a cost-efficient and safe way to manage the waste and water from your home. When they’re working right, they don’t require much thought. But, every so often, you do need to make sure your septic tank is getting the attention it needs.
All septic tanks need to be regularly pumped. We recommend pumping a septic tank every 2-3 years. But the specifics of how many people are living in your home, how large your tank is, and other kinds of water use in your home can change the frequency you’ll need this service.
Buying and Selling
Wayne County requires septic pumping and inspection before you sell your home. You can do this up to six months before you sell your house. Washtenaw County also requires inspection up to a year before selling your house and pumping is also recommended.
In areas where septic tank pumping and inspection isn’t required for a sale, a buyer may still request to do it as part of their whole house inspection. If you’re buying a house with a septic system, we highly recommend you get an inspection and pumping to ensure you’re not inheriting a failing system.
