Sewage systems help collect and dispose of wastewater and transport it to wastewater treatment facilities. In contrast, septic tanks collect and separate solid and liquid waste and ensure disposal into drain or leach fields. Regular inspections are needed for these systems to ensure they function properly and avoid risks to health and hygiene in the community. 

Look at a few critical elements regarding sewage and septic systems inspections.

  • What do inspectors look for during sewage and septic systems inspections?
  • Why are these inspections so essential to wastewater management companies and civic bodies?
  • How does Fielda simplify sewage and septic systems inspections?

How inspectors conduct sewage and septic systems inspections: Inspectors check and document vital details about the sewage system, the septic tank, drain field, piping, the commercial or residential property size and specifications, the location of the property, and people using the facility. They inspect bathroom equipment and underground piping, examine the system for any possible leaks allowing sewage water to escape into the soil, and check all components for leaks, cracks, and corrosion. They contain blocks, flooding, ponding, and channeling and certify the quality of material used in sewage and septic system equipment. They check the septic tank condition, the dimensions and specifications, piping, and the functioning of the tank pumps, among other vital component checks. 

What makes sewage and septic systems inspections so critical: When septic and sewage systems are not maintained properly, they can clog waste disposal channels, flooding, and leaks. Corrosion and malfunctioning pipes and pumps can also result in waste material not being properly disposed of and directed. These problems can pose serious health risks to people on the property and even impact the hygiene of the neighboring areas. A more severe issue can occur if wastewater mixes with supply water and contaminates it, causing major health problems to locals. Failure to properly maintain sewage and septic systems can also violate regulatory norms, penalties, and even higher repair and maintenance costs.    

How Fielda helps streamline sewage and septic systems inspections: Inspectors often need to audit and manage data from many sewage and septic systems in a large area. This data gathering and management can be cumbersome and pose difficulties in tracking each piece of piping and equipment in the area. Fielda is geared to simplify this complex data by helping inspectors map and visualize equipment using accurate GIS locations. During inspections, they can bolster reports with video, photos, and maps directly uploaded from their mobile devices, making the process seamless. Inspectors can also update inspection status reports, trigger maintenance tasks, and set alerts for review using Fielda’s easy workflow management feature.
