If you’re installing a new septic system or replacing an old one, there are several important steps to take in order to ensure a smooth transition.
First, your septic tank installation will likely need local approval, whether for a new design or replacement. Local regulations can vary widely, so it’s best to get a copy of the pertaining regulations from your city or county office before planning begins.
Plan your septic tank installation for your current and future needs. Consider the size of your household, the amount of water you currently use, how you use water, the amount of laundry you may have in a given week, the presence and use of a dishwasher, and how the septic system will need to interact with the property and water table. If this is a replacement system, consider what could be done better or differently, including new technologies that may have been developed since the last system was installed.
Once plans are finalized, you’ll need to obtain the proper permits and likely pay the associated fee. Many county and city offices are able to advise you from their wealth of experience, as are the professionals who specialize in septic tank installation.
