If your property isn’t connected to a municipal sewer system, you’re going to need to install a septic system to handle waste water. These systems have come a long way in the past few decades, and while they may be a little bit more complicated to install than they used to be, they also last a lot longer and function a lot better.
IF you’re interested in septic installations and in doing the work yourself, the video posted on this page can help. In the video, the host installs a septic system including a tank and leach field without professional assistance.
This project requires access to a lot of equipment, including excavation equipment. If you have access to that kind of machinery, you should be able to complete the project.
First, the area where the septic tank will be installed needs to be excavated. The tank should sit low in the ground so that the access port is level with the surface. This port will eventually be covered over. Once the tank is installed, it needs to be connected to a leach field and to the property’s plumbing system. To learn more about those steps, be sure to watch the video.
