How to Prepare for Your Septic Tank InstallationHave you scheduled your septic tank installation and you’re wondering how you can prepare? Any sort of septic system installation can be a lengthy process, so it’s always a good idea to prepare in order to promote a smooth and efficient install day. Here are the top ways you can prepare for your septic tank installation.

• Do Research & Ask Questions – Prior to your installation, it doesn’t hurt to do some basic research on the installation process, what it entails, and the next steps after installation. This information will give you a good idea of the work that is going to be performed and what it requires. Additionally, don’t hesitate to reach out to your installer for any questions you may have.

• Determine a Drain Field Area – Most septic systems have some sort of drain field. It’s always a good idea to scope out where you will want your drain field to be and move any lawn accessories or items before your installation day. You will likely want a drain field area that is accessible by trucks in the case that maintenance needs to be done.

• Prepare for Maintenance – Brush up on your knowledge of septic tank maintenance. This includes knowing what you can and cannot flush down toilets, how often you need to pump your tank, and signs that indicate that something isn’t working properly within your septic tank.

• Verify Paperwork – The day before your installation, consider reaching out to your installer to verify paperwork and that the correct equipment is going to be installed. This is also a good time to ask if there are any additional things you can do to prepare.

We hope these tips will help you effectively prepare for your septic tank installation. If you have any questions regarding your septic tank installation, and the services we provide, contact us today at Southeastern Septic LLC for more information.
