When it comes to residential plumbing, whether it drains to the main sewer system or a septic tank can be an issue. Homes that are in urban/developed areas tend to all be connected by a large sewer system, while homes in rural areas have to have their own septic systems. In fact, approximately 20% of Americans use septic tanks and 80% don’t. Installing or building a septic system is one of the more common construction projects for new homes.
A Common Project For Many Homeowners
Building a septic system can be quite an ordeal, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you don’t get the near-horizontal inclination correct when installing the tank, you could be spilling sewage onto your property or exposing the tank to damage from erosion later on. It is therefore important to have licensed underground drilling services help you determine how to safely, correctly, and legally install such tanks.
You’ll be glad once you have one installed in a rural home because it will enable you to have all the comforts of living in a city with none of the inconveniences. Depending on the size of your tank, it may even be years before you have to get it emptied or serviced. Having a septic tank can truly be a lifesaver, especially in cases where the power or water goes out in your home.
Precision Is Key
Finding boring contractors may seem like a chore, but when you’re building or remodeling a house to have a new septic tank it is vital. This is not something you can do yourself, such as painting a bedroom or building a storeroom out of extra bricks. This is a precision project in which everything from the angle of near-horizontal inclination has to be correct to the size of the pipes flowing in.
It is therefore always important to hire professionals who know exactly what they’re doing. To do otherwise is to open yourself up to unnecessary risk with something as hazardous as a septic tank. Not only will causing damage with this be extremely unpleasant to the senses, but it could be a gigantic legal liability as well. Don’t open yourself up to risk, be smart, and do your research.
