If you are building a house that is going to be out in the country and away from a municipal sewer system, you are going to want to make sure that you have a way to get rid of any waste water. That way is typically through a septic system. You may be unfamiliar with what it takes for a septic system to be installed at your house.
The plumbing in your house is going to be basically the exact same as if you were on a sewer line. The pipes will be laid the same way. The difference may be fixtures. You may choose to use fixtures like low-flow toilets and shower heads. That will limit the amount of water that gets put into your septic system at any one time.
There are actually several steps to installing your septic system. The septic installation company will make sure that they are very careful to do everything correctly so that you don't end up with problems down the road.
Siting the septic system
The first thing that the septic company will do when it comes to installing the actual system is to make sure that the system is sited correctly. There are several parts of your system, and they all have to be placed in different areas. The tank needs to be placed relatively near your house, and usually a little lower than your house. That's so the waste water has no problems getting to the tank.
After the waste water is processed in the tank, it goes to the leech field. The leech field needs to be placed in an area where it won't leak into your well and where a driveway or patio isn't placed over it. That will take some surveying to make sure that is the proper distance away from everything,
Installing the system
The first part of installing your system is going to make sure that the trenches and holes are dug deep enough, but not so deep as to interfere with any repair work.
Then pipes will be run from the output at your house to the area where the septic tank is going to be. The tank will be placed and connected to the pipes. The tank and pipes will get covered back up with dirt. When the tank is covered, the company doing the installation will make sure that they don't cover up the pipes that are necessary to let some air in and to clean the tank. Then you should be all ready to go.
Building your new house is exciting. Having a professional septic installation company who make sure that your septic tank is installed correctly can make it possible for you to enjoy your house for years to come.

Before I got a great deal on a house that needed some work, it never occurred to me that individuals could rent dumpsters. It did not take me long to find out that many sanitation services would rent units to homeowners. I was even able to hire a team that helped me get rid of the broken furniture and the old car that was rusting in the front yard. If you have never thought about renting a dumpster for things like cleaning out the attic, let's talk. After you know how easy the process happens to be, I'm betting you'll rent one for your next project.
