I Have Access to Heavy Machinery - Can I Do My Own Septic Tank Installation?

While it may be tempting to spend a weekend doing home repairs with the help of a friend or neighbor, certain jobs need to be left to the professionals. What may appear as a straightforward fix could lead to costly repairs down the line.

A septic tank installation does not always mean a first-time installation. It can also be the result of an old septic system that is now beyond repair. If you live in a rural area, you are likely extremely adept at the ins and outs of maintaining and repairing your home, and you also might have access to excavation equipment. However, septic tank installation is a lengthy, multi-step process that is far more complicated than the actual installation of parts.

Your septic contractor will manage the complex process of acquiring permits and liaising with city officials for sign-off. Also, your technicians will conduct a soil percolation test to measure the water absorption rate of the soil in the area for the drain field. Technicians can also better address the correct tank size necessary for your household’s usage, taking into factors such as family size and expected usage.

In addition to the peace of mind that comes with expert installation, you also have a warranty available when you with work a reputable company. At William Dustin Septic, our septic tank installations come with a 3-year warranty. That warranty coverage extends to 6 years if you have your tank professionally drained at the 3-year mark as part of proper maintenance of your new septic system.

The value of hiring a professional extends well beyond the installation itself. Save yourself valuable time and money by working with our team of experts. We’re available 24/7 for all of your septic service needs.
