Effects
What is the age of your system (tank and/or drainfield)?
Do you have a pump for your septic system (pressure dosed) and/or do you have a sump pump that goes into your septic system?
Do you have an elevated sand mound or a sandfilter type of septic system? (not standard gravity feed)
Do you have a water softener where the backwash water goes into the septic tank?
Do you have a washing machine that conserves water? (Example: Water-conserving top-loading washer or a front-loading washing machine)
How often do you use a garbage disposal?
Do you use low flow showerheads and/or toilets, do not leave faucets running, and/or repair leaks quickly?
How often do you wash laundry?

Did you know: On average, laundry accounts for approximately 20% of the water going into a septic system on a daily basis.
Is your home used for seasonal use only (no more than 120 days out of the calendar year)?
Does your system serve a commercial business? (Such as a daycare, taxidermy shop, hair salon, restaurant, etc.)
Are there more people living in your home than there are bedrooms? Answer NO if it is a commercial business.
When was the last time your septic tank was pumped?
Septic System Information
Is your septic tank connected to an off-site community or shared drainfield?
Is storm water runoff diverted away from the septic system?
Do you have an effluent screen installed on the septic tank outlet?

Note: An effluent filter is found on the outlet side of your septic tank and prevents solids from going out into your drainfield. They were not required to be installed by the Health Department before 2004.
Is the septic tank and/or drainfield located in any of the following areas?

Examples:
  • Driveways
  • Utility easements
  • Patios
  • Decks
  • Livestock
  • Gardening
  • Vehicular traffic
  • Construction
Is the replacement area located in any of the following areas?

Note: The replacement area is a location on the property that can be used to replace your existing system.

  • Driveways
  • Utility easements
  • Patios
  • Decks
  • Livestock
  • Gardening
  • Vehicular traffic
  • Construction
Is there any odor within 10 feet of the septic tank and/or drainfield?
Are there trees planted or other large vegetation planted in the drainfield area? Please answer NO if you do not have a drainfield area.
Is there excessive, uneven or poor vegetation over tank and/or drainfield?

Note: This would be more than what is usually expected for a drainfield area. It is common to have greener vegetation that grows more than the rest of the yard. However, too much vegetation or vegetation that is dead may be an indication of a drainfield that is not working properly or needs attention.
To your knowledge, has the septic system ever backed up?
To your knowledge, has the effluent screen in the septic tank ever plugged?

Please answer No if you don't have an effluent screen.
To your knowledge, has sewage ever surfaced at the drainfield or outside of the septic tank?
To your knowledge, has the alarm ever sounded in the septic tank or pump tank?

Please answer No if you don't have an alarm.

High water alarms are typically found on septic systems that require a pump, They are usually not installed on standard gravity systems.
