Modern septic systems today can be designed to fit every homeowner’s property and budget just right. To learn more, you can always talk to a local septic installation expert about the best options for your home.
Here are a couple of tips to help you get started:
Quality vs. Affordability
The first thing your septic engineer should ask you about is your budget. Some systems will be more expensive than others – but the higher price might pay off in the long run.
For example, a traditional septic tank may be prone to leaks and overflow, while an aerobic tank, which comes at a higher cost, will guarantee years of little to no maintenance.
Talk to a residential septic design expert about balancing your budget with your long-term goals, to make sure you’re getting the best system for your home.
Protecting the environment
In a rural area, you want your septic design to be as environmentally friendly as possible. To make that happen, it’s important to start with a soil test, or percolation test. The percolation test will tell you if it’s safe to install a leach field on your property without risking groundwater pollution.
If your soil percolates (drains) too quickly, you might want to consider a more eco-friendly alternative, like a Sand Mound or Aerobic Septic System.
