Wondering about septic tank replacement? Get honest answers from us!
There may only be one reason to need your first septic tank installed, but there are a variety of reasons why you might need septic tank replacement at your Lakeland, Florida home. You might even have more than one reason. Here at William Dustin Septic, you can count on us for an honest assessment of your septic tank’s health and capacity. We understand that replacement should be a last resort, and we put your needs first before recommending it be done. Here are some reasons why we might suggest you proceed with septic tank replacement:
1.Age – If you have a steel septic tank nearing the 15 to 20-year mark or a concrete one in the 35 to 40-year range, we might suggest septic tank replacement. Alternatively, if the tank is still operating well, we might suggest annual inspections to make sure it is still doing well now that it is on borrowed time.
2.Nonrepairable or Costly Repairs – There are some things that can damage a septic tank that make septic tank replacement the only option. If the tank itself is severely cracked and leaking or the concrete has deteriorated, these are not repairable issues. If repairs are possible but costly, we will give you information for both, so you can make an informed decision.
3.Wrong size – If your septic tank is not large enough to accommodate your family, you will be advised to move forward with septic tank replacement. This will reduce the number of pump-outs you need. Although rarer, if you have a larger tank than you need, and its location is hampering a project you have in mind, septic tank replacement to downsize can be done provided it keeps within code regulations. Typically, this can only be done if you’ve renovated to fewer bedrooms. We are happy to answer your questions about whether this reason for septic tank replacement is feasible.
