Septic test dye breakout locations: this article describes where you will be most likely to find septic dye outside when conducting a septic loading and dye test - if the system is failing, here's where you're likely to see the dyed effluent appearing. A visual inspection of these locations before and after a septic dye test is performed can give key information about the condition of the septic system. You should look everywhere on and around a site being tested but here are the most-likely locations of dyed effluent or un-dyed effluent appearance at a property with a failing septic system.

How to Spot Septic Dye Test Breakouts: Where Will You Most Probably Find Dyed Septic Effluent Outside
Watch Out: Any probing of wet or suspect areas should be performed carefully to avoid any charge of damaging piping. Probing can be useful in a suspect area, but since the exact location, depth, design of buried components is unknown, this is not a reliable comprehensive inspection method.
Avoid using heavy steel wrecking bars or similar probing tools which can damage septic tank top or other components.
