How to Prepare for Your Septic System Installation

Whether you’re working on a new piece of property or replacing an older system, there are several things you’ll need to do before your septic system installation. Taking steps now can save you both time and money in the long run. Here’s a short checklist to help you get ready for your septic system installation.

1. Speak with Your Septic Contractor

One of the first things you’ll want to do is find a reliable septic service company to work with. Doing this first will allow you to ask specific questions that pertain to regulations in your particular area. Also, building a relationship with a contractor will make future septic system inspections and possible septic tank emergencies run smoother.

2. Designate a Location

Your contractor will be able to work with you to conduct a survey of your land. This is how the location of your new septic system will be determined. It’s very important that the location be easily accessible for septic tank pumping and repairs.

3. Clear the Land

The next step is clearing the area where your septic system will go. This might include removing trees and brush, or just preparing the space with sand and gravel. Your septic contractor will be able to give you more specific details regarding what needs to happen.

4. Obtain Required Permits

You will also need to obtain any and all required permits before the installation can begin. Permits will vary depending on your location, so make sure you discuss the matter with your contractor and pick up any needed documentation from your local building code office.
