3 Things to Know About Septic Tank Installation
When it comes to septic tank installation, most homeowners do not know much and simply hire a professional to handle the matter. Regardless, to ensure the process goes well, it is important for you to know some basic information about septic tank installation.

Here are 3 things you should know about septic tank installation:

1.Check local regulations. The regulations governing the installation of septic tanks vary from area to area, so it’s important to check local rules and laws. Imagine paying for a new septic tank, only to find out that it does not meet local codes or zoning laws here in Central Florida! At Sauer Septic, we make it easy for you by handling the permit process to ensure your septic tank installation goes off without a hitch.

2.Look into including the installation of lids and risers. You may think that lids and risers are not necessary for your septic tank. That’s not true; having lids and risers makes the servicing of the tank much easier. At Sauer Septic, we have over 30 years of experience in installing septic tanks, and we can provide advice and recommendations based on your septic tank needs.

Don’t scrimp on cost. Installing a new septic tank can be a costly affair; however, cutting corners is not a solution. A badly installed septic tank can lead to leakage or other drainage issues which need repairs or even replacement of the tank. While the upfront cost may be high, your new septic tank only needs to be regular pumping every 3 to 5 years to maintain it.
