When it comes to home improvements or maintenance, there are many projects you can handle on your own. Simple repairs and installations often can be done quite well with the tools and knowledge the average homeowner has. Other projects are best left to professionals. Septic system installation is definitely one of them. Quality Septic Inc. of Plant City, FL, would like to share some useful information about septic system installation and for the safety of your home & your wallet, why it’s always better to turn the job over to experts rather than do it yourself.
Septic systems are not simple
One of the reasons you should hire professionals for septic system installation at your home or buis the level of complexity involved.
Septic systems are far from easy to install, and a proper installation involves much more than just the septic tank. Septic systems are made up of multiple chambers, valves, baffles and other components that are necessary to allow the system to work optimally and efficiently.
The parts of a system are important, and so is the location. Septic systems need to be installed in an area that will give service technicians easy access down the line, should problems occur.
Depending on the lay of your land, considerations may have to be taken during installation to ensure that the water and sewage leaving your home can travel efficiently to and through the septic system. Recessed areas and sloped land may require the addition of a lift pump station to make everything work as it should.
These and other elements of septic system installation are easy to mess up without the right experience. For this reason alone, installing a new system is a job only for trained professionals.
Doing septic system installation yourself isn’t a way to save money
Quality Septic has been installing septic systems since 1994, and we’ve seen firsthand what can happen when a homeowner attempts to do the job. Usually, the reason they did it themselves is that they wanted to save money.
We can tell you from experience that this usually doesn’t happen. The initial work may cost the homeowner less, but the malfunctions and resulting repairs over time end up costing much more in the long run. It’s never a good idea to try to save money by doing it yourself.
Safety for your home, family and community
Finally, the most important reason to hire professionals for your septic system installation is safety. Improperly installed septic systems can leak raw sewage into the surrounding area, including local water sources. The result is a health hazard that can put your family and the entire community at risk.
Major leakage is unfortunately a common issue with septic systems that have been improperly installed. Avoid this by having your installation project done right.
