Are you setting up arrangements to get a new septic system installed? This can be quite the task, so it’s important to effectively prepare to ensure that the process goes smoothly, and you can walk away with a new and functioning septic system. Here’s how to prepare for your septic system installation:

  • Dispose of Old Septic System – First and foremost, you’ll want to dispose of your current septic system. You should arrange for your current septic system to be removed before the installation of your new one. Oftentimes this can be done by the same company or professional.

  • Prepare Water Use – At the time of installation, your water will be temporarily shut off. You should have bottled drinking water and plan your bathroom and shower use around your septic system installation.
  • Soil Test – Part of installing a septic system is getting a soil test. Your contractor can typically coordinate this for you. A soil test will determine if your soil can support a septic tank and a drain field. Having this step done ahead of time will allow your contractor to make any changes if necessary.
  • Clear the Area – It’s important to clear the area of installation as your septic system installation day approaches. This includes clearing the area of any debris and items because this will ensure that workers can work efficiently without damaging any of your belongings.
