3 Pitfalls to Avoid During Septic Design & Installation

So, you've taken the plunge and bought that beautiful piece of country land for your dream home. Congratulations! You're crafting a legacy, a place where your kids and grandkids will make memories. But in the midst of all this excitement, let's not overlook the unsung hero of your new abode – the septic system.

Why is a Septic System Important?

A well-designed and properly maintained septic system can last a lifetime. But don't take this crucial process lightly. Let's walk through the essentials to make sure your dream home remains as pristine as your dreams.

Secure Those Permits

First things first, don't skip the paperwork! Make sure you've got all the permits you need to legally construct a septic system that's not just safe for you but also friendly to the environment. We're all in this together, after all.

3 Common Pitfalls to Avoid

Now, let's dive into the nitty-gritty of septic system installation. Here are three major pitfalls you definitely want to steer clear of:

Pitfall #1 – Choosing the Wrong Crew

Opting for an inexperienced or uncertified team can be a gamble. The world of septic installation is ever-evolving, with new techniques and equipment constantly emerging. You want professionals who stay on top of the game. Certified companies stand by their work, ensuring your system is installed correctly, and your property is in safe hands. So make sure you check out reviews!

Pitfall #2 – Neglecting Your Water and Septic Records

Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to septic systems. Having records of your water consumption and previous septic services is like having a secret weapon. This info helps the designers figure out the perfect tank and leach field size for your household's needs. Plus, it allows them to address any recurring issues based on your history. If you're on well water, your local Board of Health can provide your monthly water usage.

Pitfall #3 – The DIY Temptation

We get it; you're handy, and you love a good DIY project. But septic installations aren't your typical weekend warrior gig. This task involves navigating a maze of regulations, precise measurements, operating heavy machinery, and analyzing soil. It's a job best left to the pros who have the experience and know-how to handle it safely.
