Not all of us live near an area where hookups to the city sewer system are easy or affordable. In fact, some of us like living a little farther out and will gladly trade the maintenance required for a septic tank for the privacy of living a little off the beaten path! If you are considering a septic tank installation for your property, there are a few items you need to consider before you proceed.

Septic tank installation

First, you need to determine the right size for your tank. A larger tank obviously will be able to hold more and equal less-frequent pumping. You’ll also need to look at your household size- will it remain the same for many years? Grow? Shrink? Household size and number of people in your household are factors that determine the size septic tank that will work for your septic tank installation.

Second, you need to figure out where your tank will go on your property. This is important because you need to be able to find your tank when it’s time for maintenance checks or pumping. You can’t park things like boats, ATVs or RVs on top of a septic tank, so you’ll need to map out an area that is septic tank only.

Lastly, you’ll need to consult with an expert when it comes to your septic tank installation. Experience and expertise can help you narrow down all the options available to you, determine the best fit for your family, and also get you the ideal location for your septic tank installation.
