What is Involved in Septic System Installation And Removal In Dover?
While septic system installation may seem as easy as replacing a septic tank, in reality installing a system is a much more intricate task. First and foremost, our team checks with your city and county to ensure that you do not need any special permits. If you do we obtain them for you and make sure that we adhere to all zoning regulations.
Then, we look at the lay of the land to determine the best way to place your septic system. If you are replacing an old system, it is not as simple as interchanging the parts. Many times, the land has shifted or a system was installed improperly the first time around leading to its breakdown. The goal of installation is to use gravity properly to run wastes out of the home and then into the drain field. We also need to consider the size of your home, soil content, and slope of the land. All of these components go into building a septic system that will stand the test of time.
What Happens to My Old Septic System?
If you are replacing your old septic system, then we offer removal of your old system for a minimal fee as part of our Dover Delaware septic services. Removing a septic system requires diligence so that you don’t end up with biological wastes all of over your yard. Additionally, the items are large and require professional disposal. When you hire us to take care of your septic system removal you don’t need to worry about any of these issues.
Does My New Septic System Require Maintenance?
Finally, it is vital to understand that your septic system will still require maintenance even though it is new. On average, a septic tank needs emptied every three to five years in order to avoid a backup of wastes into the home. When we empty a tank, we also inspect all components of the septic system to ensure that everything is in great working condition to head off any future problems. Proper maintenance can help keep a septic system young and functioning without problems for decades. Therefore, it is very important to maintain your septic system after its initial installation.
