How to Prepare for Your Septic System Installation
While a septic system installation seems overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, if you take a few steps prior to installing your septic system, it won’t be stressful or overwhelming. That being said, continue reading to learn how you can adequately prepare for your septic system installation.
Learn Local Regulations
Prior to installing a septic system, it’s important to understand the regulations your town has about septic systems. If you understand the specifications and restrictions prior to installation, you won’t have to worry about any problems during the installation process.
Hire a Plumber
Installing a septic system is extremely difficult. That’s why you should leave it to a professional and hire a plumber. By hiring a plumber for your septic system installation, you will save time, money, and have peace of mind knowing your septic system is properly and adequately installed.
Test Your Soil
Unfortunately, some properties can’t support an entire septic system. That’s why it’s important to determine whether or not your property can support a septic system prior to hiring a plumber and getting fully prepared for a septic system installation. In order to determine whether or not your property can withstand a septic system, get your soil tested.
Schedule a Removal
If you already have a septic system, it’s important you schedule a removal for that system before your installation. By doing so, you’ll ensure that your property is fully prepared for your new septic system. Also, if any problems occur during the removal, you won’t have to worry about fixing them the same day you’re installing your new septic system.
Turn Water Off
It’s important to note that you have to turn off your water system when your new septic system is installed. So, make sure you have some drinking water on hand and don’t plan on taking any showers or using the bathroom during the installation process.
