There’s nothing more exciting than planning, designing, and constructing your own home. It takes some time and a significant investment, but by the time it’s finished, you’ll have an amazing home of your own design that your family will enjoy for generations.
But if you want that home to last for generations, you have to consider every little detail of your construction — including the septic.
Here are a few steps to start your new development from the ground up:
1. The Soil Test
Before you get started on your initial plans for construction, you need to have a professional soil test on your property.
Why? Because that’s the only way to know if it’s safe to install a septic system there! Traditional septic systems use an underground leach field to safely filter pollutants from the wastewater. If your soil drains or percolates too quickly, you could be risking serious groundwater pollution.
2. Septic System Design
Once you know that you can safely install a septic system on your new property, talk to a septic design company about the best solution for you.
A clunky septic tank and leach field design isn’t your only option anymore. Modern, affordable, and space-saving alternative septic systems are available. Septic engineers will design and personalize a system that is just right for your property.
3. Septic Installation
Finally, have your septic system installed by local contractors. Septic installation can take a number of days — but once it’s done, you won’t have to worry about replacing the system for as long as you own your new home.
Planning for your septic might not be the most important part of your new home design, but it’s a crucial first step before you start construction. Call a professional septic company like NexGen Engineering to get started.
