Septic Tank Replacement
Is it time to for a septic tank replacement? Septic tanks are a lot like roofs. If you do it right, you’ll probably only have to do it once the entire time you own your home or business. To that end, it’s tough to know exactly what parts need to be replaced, what permits you’ll need, and what materials to use, because you need to deal with a septic tank replacement so infrequently. Let our partner experts at CMAC Septic Service guide you through the process. We have partner technicians that handle all septic system issues, from regular maintenance to repairs, and of course, septic tank replacement and installation.
Get Any Required Permits First
One thing a lot of people don’t realize is that municipalities often treat replacing major components as if they’re a new build. The laws may say that you need to prove that the tank is being placed a safe distance from the house and from potable water and explain where all of the components will go. Our partner technicians are already familiar with which permits are necessary in and around Oxford, so you won’t need to spend any time researching codes to make sure you’re compliant. This is something that’s handled as part of any install.
Choose the Right Size Replacement Tank
If you didn’t have any issues related to the size of the tank, such as overflow or the need for frequent pumping, it’s probably safe to get the same size you have now. A typical residential system for a small family is about 1,000 gallons, though some are as small as 300 gallons and some industrial goliaths are 5,000 gallons.
Select the Right Material
You will have a selection of materials to choose from and the technician may recommend one over the other due to your soil, expected use, local laws, and other factors. The most common materials these days are plastic, steel, fiberglass, and concrete, with the latter two being the most durable and popular choices.
Prepare for the Septic Tank Replacement
When you work with a reputable installer, everything is overseen from start to finish, so you don’t have to worry about the logistics of removing the old tank, what to do with it, or integrating the new one in. Not every company operates this way, so always be sure to choose a company that works exclusively with septic systems, plus has the knowledge and years of experience to back it up.
