Are there any tips on how to pass a Title 5 Inspection?
Yes, avoid putting bleach into the drain either by cleaning the tub, toilets or any area that would drain into the system. If your washing machine is connected to the septic system avoid using bleach as this will kill good bacteria that naturally breaks down the sewage in the pipes and tanks. If your washing machine drains into the septic system you may consider having a separate system as this alleviate most of your possible problems. You could have good bacteria added to your system, however a properly operating system will not need it. Avoid house parties before the inspection date. Fix any leaking water faucets, even a small leak can create an overflow over time. Avoid rainfall from getting into the system through the covers. Make sure the covers are properly sealed and there is a slight mound where the cover would be to keep rain water from getting into the system.
Avoid growing trees on top of the system as the roots will damage the pipes and leaching field. If roots do block a pipe, there is a snake machine that can cut away the roots, however if the tree is not removed the pipes will eventually get clogged again. Have your tanks along with your D Box pumped every 2 to 3 years. Try to keep the area above the leaching field open and sunny and last but not least, don't drive a car over the system.
