Building a home is an exciting process. From the design stages to laying the last brick, homeowners who choose to build rather than to buy, look forward to bringing their idea to life. Compared to handpicking roofing material and room colors, very few people are excited about figuring out more meticulous things like how to collect, contain, and process waste. However, this is an indispensable part of the building process, and it begins with finding the right septic system installation company to install septic system components.

So, before you search for “septic installers near me,” here’s what you need to know.

Benefits Of A Septic Installation

If you live in a rural area, public sewers may not be an available option for waste management. Sometimes even when sewers are available, homeowners may prefer the independence of being off the grid. Up to 25% of American homes rely on septic installation to manage household waste.

Some benefits of septic installation include:

  • Helps you to avoid routine waste management bills
  • Better protection for the environment than public sewer systems
  • Costs less than installing pipes to connect to public sewer systems
  • May use effluent from private tanks to fertilize gardens
  • Wide variety to choose from, such as concrete, steel, fiberglass and aerobic

How To Properly Maintain The System

To ensure you reap the many rewards of a septic system, it is important to keep up to date on maintenance. Otherwise, the system may not operate optimally. In the worst-case scenario, a system backup could flood your home with septic material, resulting in costly cleanup and repair work.
Thankfully, septic tanks usually don’t need a lot of maintenance work. Most septic tanks require a professional inspection every two or three years. Tanks that rely on mechanical or electrical components may need to be inspected every year. Depending on the size and use, tanks are then pumped every three to five years.
