Are you looking to replace your current septic tank? Do you have a new property on which a septic system needs to be installed? In either case, you should rely on a professional septic contractor to do the work. Installation is not a “DIY” project that you can accomplish over a weekend with a guidebook and a few tools.

septic install in Lutz FLQuality Septic Inc. of Plant City, FL, has been providing septic tank replacements and new tank installations for more than 25 years in our area of Florida. Here are some things you’ll want to know about professional septic tank installation before you get started.

Knowledge and experience count

Our septic services crew – and all qualified crews, wherever you may live – have extensive knowledge about septic tank design, drain field design, lift station pumps and all the components that make up a modern septic system. This is not common knowledge for the average homeowner.

A trained, certified septic installer is the only wise choice for a project as large and potentially complex as a septic tank installation.

Local codes and laws

No matter what city or town you live in, there are likely at least a few building codes and zoning ordinances that apply to septic tank installation. A professional contractor will know all the laws, rules, and codes that your area requires for a septic system project.

If specific permits or licensing are necessary, your contractor will be able to get this documentation for you. This will ensure that you don’t have to have your septic system moved after it was improperly placed. It also prevents you from getting fined by your city in the event that everything isn’t up to code.

It’s not just about dropping the septic tank

We call it septic tank “installation,” but the job goes much further than just setting the tank. Professional septic tank installation includes finding the optimal spot on the property to install the tank as well as figuring out what size of tank will best serve the home or commercial building.

  1. Factor in how many people will be using the septic system. Recommend a tank size that will prevent you from having to empty it more often than necessary.
  2. Determine the land grade and soil quality at your property, so we can make necessary adjustments in planning and carrying out the installation.
  3. Go over various options with you, which will allow you to end up with a septic system that is ideal for your needs in every way and will serve you well for many years.
