Home > Septic Services Blog > How to Prepare for Septic System Installation Day

Are you planning to have a septic system installed on your property, either to replace an old one or because you recently built a home that requires a wastewater treatment system? It’s a big project, but it can be a pretty simple one when you work with an experienced contractor.

When you trust Quality Septic Inc. of Plant City, FL, with your new septic system install, we’ll want to make sure the process goes smoothly during all stages. For this reason, we suggest that all our customers take the following steps to prepare for their septic system installation day.

Step 1: Determine water usage

Let us know before installation day how many people live in your household and what you estimate your daily water usage will be. This includes all the water that will go down every drain connected to your septic tank. By knowing this, we can recommend a tank size that will fully support your usage patterns and not have to be constantly pumped out and cleaned.

Where should your septic tank and drain field be located? Obviously, they should be fairly near your home, but that still leaves a lot of options. When selecting the installation site, choose an area where you don’t plan to build anything major, store heavy equipment or plant what will become gigantic trees with gigantic roots. Your septic system should be basically free of stuff on top of it, except for grass.

Step 3: Know how to care for your septic system

Review our common guidelines for septic tank maintenance and get familiar with life with a septic system. While we’ll do the majority of the maintenance work, such as cleaning, parts replacement and repairs down the line, you should be knowledgeable about how the system works. This way, you can adhere to best practices and know how to watch for issues that may require our assistance.

Step 4: Ask questions

The septic industry, like all industries, comes with its share of jargon and technical terms. We’ll do our best to explain your installation in normal language, but that doesn’t mean you’ll automatically understand everything. If you have any questions before, during or after the installation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for the answers you need. The more you know, the better your experience will be.
