Below is a video of a clogged inlet baffle. This homeowner called us out for a pumping and thought his septic tank needed cleaned. It did need cleaned, but for other reasons. The tank was backed up due to a clogged inlet baffle. And this advice could save you money in a case of a backup.
Just a reminder, this video is not an inspection. A true inspection will involve sludge and scum measurements, second compartment (if applicable) inspection, and outlet baffle inspection.
Once unclogged, contact your local approved septic inspection contractor for an inspection.
