- Installing the wrong size tank: Consult a professional when planning for your septic installation, specifically on the best tank size for your home or business. Getting the wrong size tank on your septic installation can cause many problems to the plumbing system, including overflow, flooding into your home or business, and/or costly repairs.
- Learn about septic systems before the septic installation: A major problem that happens shortly following a septic installation is that users do not learn ahead of time the do’s and don’ts of a septic system. This can include flushing items that will cause damage, not knowing the signs of clogging and more. You do not want to learn what you can and cannot flush the hard way.
- Consider your landscaping before installation: If by chance there was an issue with your septic system that could cause a clog or flood, you may want to consider your tank placement before your septic installation. By this we mean that if you have large trees with large roots in your landscaping, avoid those areas when considering where to install your septic system.
