Regularly scheduled maintenance and repairs can keep a system running well for many years, but what do those homeowners do if a time comes when a replacement system is needed? Or, what can you expect if you are building new on some land and want to have a septic system installed? Here are just a few things that you can do to prepare for septic tank installation.
