Septic systems are essential for homes and businesses that are not connected to a municipal sewer system. They function by collecting and treating wastewater from sinks, toilets, and other household sources before it is safely dispersed into the ground.

A well-designed and properly functioning septic system is essential for preventing groundwater and surface water contamination, which can spread harmful bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants.

A malfunctioning septic system can also cause unpleasant odours, backups, and property damage, which can be costly to repair. Therefore, it is important to properly design and install, and regularly maintain septic systems to prevent these issues and ensure the safe and effective treatment and disposal of wastewater.

The design and construction of a septic system raises a lot of questions:see snake plumbing inspection

  • What permits are required?
  • What are the costs for a septic field?
  • Who can build the septic system?
  • How do I operate and maintain a septic system?
