How Long Does it Take to Install a Septic System?

A fully functioning septic system is an essential part of keeping your daily routine intact. Even if one little component malfunctions, bigger problems can arise. Things can go wrong from the very beginning, starting with installation, so it’s important to find someone to do things right. It takes a trained team of engineers and technicians to correctly install a septic system so that it can work efficiently for years to come. When installed improperly, it could break down within 24 hours. So if you need a new septic system installed, it is essential that your installation is done by highly trained professionals, like those at Wind River Environmental; visit our septic services page to learn more. So how long exactly can you expect the installation process to take?

Rely on the Experts
Installs can vary greatly depending on the size of your waste water treatment system, location, and local regulations. If the land is not ideal, it may take extra time to excavate or get the soil suitable for leaching. The permitting process could delay progress, or even weather can be a factor. However, on average, it takes about 7 days for a knowledgeable team to get your system set up. To avoid immediate issues or future problems related to installation, make sure you employ a certified company like Wind River Environmental to complete the job. Once your septic system is up and running, you can also count on us to do the future maintenance to keep it working efficiently. On average, sludge and solid waste should be pumped out every 1-2 years to prevent clogs, backups and damage to your system.
