Is a sewer line installation right for you?
All homes dispose of wastewater in one of two ways — a septic tank or a sewer line.
While there are advantages and disadvantages to each, homeowners are typically not able to choose between the two. Some cities state that if a city sewer line exists within 300 feet of your property, owners must switch.
Local codes that don’t require immediate connection might have a clause that requires the switch if the septic tank breaks…
When cities expand sewer lines Installation, they begin to extend into new developments, offering current residents the option of tying into the public sewer system.
For homes with old or failing septic systems, this is an excellent opportunity to avoid high replacement costs—but homeowners with newer septic systems face a difficult choice about whether or not to convert.
Although your septic tank system may work well now, that might not always be the case.
A sad fact is nothing lasts forever, even with proper maintenance and no significant problems that septic pipes and tanks eventually require replacement. Replacing any component of a septic system can get costly.
When coupled with the stress it causes when a septic system fails, it makes sense to explore the possibility of a conversion.
How Hard is it to Convert?
Once you decide to convert, the process is relatively simple. It takes no more than a few days to complete and only disrupts wastewater service for a matter of hours.
This is a labor-intensive process; in addition to installing the sewer line, your old septic system needs to be disabled.
When septic tanks aren’t correctly disabled and given a final pump, raw sewage can seep into the ground, and even deadly sinkholes are possible.
There is also a high possibility of adverse environmental effects.
