It is hard to imagine that there are still areas of Central Florida that are not reachable by municipal wastewater systems, but that can actually be a good thing. If you are thinking that living a bit off the beaten path has some appeal, you’re going to have to come up with a way to deal with wastewater. In the old days, that was resolved with outhouses. Today, one option is a combustible or composting toilet. Even so, you still need a place for grey water to go. The answer is septic installation.
When a septic system is installed, life goes on much like it does when you’re in the cities or towns that have sewer lines. The difference? No monthly bill! The only expense is to have your septic system serviced every 3-5 years, depending on family size and other usage considerations. Yes, there are things you shouldn’t put down the drain and you have to be extra vigilant about this. But, the reality is people shouldn’t put those things in a sewer system either!
Septic installation is something that should be planned out at the same time you start the plans for your home. It will need to be located so that it can be accessed and yet not be in a place where anything heavy will damage it. You can’t put a concrete pad over it, either. A professional septic installation company will lay out all the requirements, as well as obtain any permits that may be necessary.
