Septic Installation Process for Residential Homes

Installing a waste system for residential properties in Haywood County, North Carolina.
By: NC Grading & Excavating
WAYNESVILLE, N.C. - Jan. 3, 2020 - PRLog -- Western North Carolina is a rural and diverse area with its numerous mountains and valleys. Because of the character of the land here, that means that a large portion of homes are built in areas without access to city water and sewer utilities. When a home is built in an area without access to those utilities, a septic system must be installed instead. Which, in turn, leads us to the question, can a homeowner install a septic system themselves? To better understand this question, let's take a look at what is required to install a septic system.

Obtain a Local Permit

The first step to even begin installing a waste system is to obtain a permit from your local county office. However, if you hire a professional contractor such as NC Grading & Excavating, we will handle obtaining all the appropriate permits you will need for new construction.

Design Your Septic System

Following obtaining the correct permits, you must then design a septic system that suits the area in which it will be built as well as one that is appropriate for the soil in which it will be installed.

Municipality inspectors from the health department will perk the land and decide on the design you will need based on your soil type. North Carolina has over 400 different kinds of soil, and even on a 1-acre lot, it would surprise you as to how many different types lie within it. Your local health department inspectors will give you strict requirements based on how large your home is going to be, and they must be met.

If you want to ensure that all regulations set forth are adhered to, we recommend that you do not attempt to install a septic system on your own but instead hire a contractor. NC Grading & Excavating will build your inspector's design strictly to what is set forth based on the unique soil type of your land.

Installation of Septic System

After your design has been created, it is time to begin the heavy work of installing your system to handle all waste from your residential home.

We factor in all aspects of what will be needed to complete your septic tank installation in your project quote before work ever begins. What could take you weeks to complete on your own we can complete your septic tank installation in two to four days once the permit has been received.
