The Pumper Said it’s fine

The septic pumper pumped the tanks a short time ago. You were told the pumper said everything is fine or explained some repairs were needed. Perhaps you completed the repairs. For this be thankful the pumper is performing their due diligence and conducting business as a professional.

Unless the pumper performed a PSMA inspection concurrent with your tank pumping and provided a written inspection report, the entire system is not inspected.

The pumper only observed the tank condition. Perhaps the pumper observed liquid levels prior to pumping, perhaps not. The inspection is incomplete without inspecting all aspects of the system. In order to perform a full inspection the entire system most be observed in sequence. This means the tank must be pumped again during the inspection. Without pumping the tank(s), the inspection is inconclusive and more investigation is needed.
