How to Prepare for Your Septic System Installation

Septic system installation typically occurs during the construction phase of a home. However, if you’ve had issues with your septic system, it may require repair or a brand-new system altogether. In the case of a septic system replacement, you may be wondering the best way to prepare for your service. Here’s how to best prepare for your septic system installation.

  • Out with the Old, in with the New – In preparation for your new septic system, have arrangements made to rid of your old septic system before your new one is scheduled to be installed.
  • Clear the Area – A few days before your septic system installation, clear the area where installation will take place. This includes clearing the area of objects, trash, and debris.
  • Plan Ahead – During your septic system installation, your water will be temporarily turned off. The water shut-off period may vary, so it’s important to plan ahead. You will want to ensure you have plenty of drinking water on hand and have a place to shower and use the bathroom in the meantime
  • Soil Testing– Getting a proper soil test is essential before you have your septic system installed. This test is testing for the quality of your soil to determine if it can sustain a drain field and water tank. If your soil is not in good shape, don’t worry — usually you can make some simple changes that can fix that.

We hope this guide helps you prepare for your septic system installation. Following these guidelines will ensure that everything goes smoothly on installation day.
