Whether you’re new to owning a septic system or are replacing one that has lived past its prime, there are several things that you can do to make septic system installation a smooth process. Septic system installation can last a day or more, depending on how large and complex your system is as well as factors that depend on the soil and access to the installation site, so preparation is key for making the septic system installation go off without a hitch.
For starters, it helps to know where you intend to put your new septic system. If you are replacing your old system, you need to determine which components are buried and where. For a new owner, make sure that the area is cleared and accessible for the professionals that will be taking care of your septic system installation.
Next, you’ll need to know what size septic system you’ll be installing. A professional can help you determine which size will be best for your home after asking some questions about your family size, laundry frequency, and household water usage. Be prepared to answer these and other questions to determine the best size for your property.
Finally, make sure that you have all the proper permits and know where the plumbing lines and electrical lines are buried. A septic professional can usually assist you with this part, but you’ll need things clearly marked before digging.
