Testing Residual Head Pressure
Celtic Risers inspections include testing the residual head pressure of the lateral lines/drain field. This helps determine the flow through the lines. A lack of pressure (water column height) could indicate a clog in the lines or a weak pump that needs replacement.
It also aids in removing loose clumps of bio-film that may accumulate during operation if the septic tank is not properly operating through routine pumping and inspections of the baffle system.
By not having these routine inspections performed, you could find yourself with clogged drain field pipes.
This is the only way to test the functional flow of your drain field and pump.
Yes, it is dirty. But a little bit of dirty goes a long way to saving you money by not having to replace your septic tanks and drain field.
