A lot of planning goes into building a new home. From determining the perfect exterior look, to selecting the fixtures for each room, each decision is a process. Planning for a septic system is no different. If you are building a new home where sewer is not available, there’s a high probability you will need an On-Site Sewage Facility (OSSF), better known as a septic system.
Unfortunately, there is not a one-size-fits all system and many factors need to be considered during the design process.
These factors are determined through a three-step process regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ):
During this process there’s a good chance you may have to hire three contractors: a site evaluator, a designer, and an installer. In some instances, you may only have to hire two contractors as some site evaluators can also provide the design. Other contractors, and companies like ours, provide turn-key installation meaning you hire one person for everything.
The process doesn’t end once the system is installed. Every septic system and aerobic system requires ongoing maintenance. The level of maintenance depends on the system type and usage. Click here for more information about system maintenance.
