Using The Right Plumbing Products

After years of doing what I could to make my home a cleaner, more functional place, I realized that there might be an issue that I was causing unintentionally. I realized that there were some serious issues with my plumbing products, largely because I wasn't focusing so much on using the proper varieties of plumbing cleaners. I began working harder to do what I could to identify the right types of products, and I found some organic varieties that worked better with my septic system and drain network. Find out how different plumbing issues could be resolved by identifying common problems with your cleaning products.

Why It's Important to Have a Survey Done Before Installing a Septic Tank

If you're going to be having a septic tank installed on your property, then it's smart to have a land survey done on your property first. Even though it's not always required for you to do this, it's something you'll probably want to dedicate the money and time to do before you start having a hole dug for your septic tank for these reasons.

Avoid Accidentally Installing It on Someone Else's Property

For one thing, the last thing that you want to do is have your septic tank installed on someone else's property by accident. You might think that this seems silly, but depending on the shape and size of your property, this could be more likely than you think. Having a land survey done first will help you make sure that you are fully aware of your property lines and that your septic tank is installed solidly on your property and not too close to—or even past—your property lines.

Make Sure the Area Is Suitable for Digging

Next, a land surveyor can tell you a little more about the soil in the area where you are planning on having your septic tank installed. This can help you make sure that you are choosing an area on your property that is appropriate for installing your septic tank. Of course, you may still need to have additional testing done; for example, the company that is going to be installing your septic tank may need to do some of their own tests. However, a land survey can help you get started with choosing the right location for your new septic tank.

Get Help with Getting a Permit

In some places, you actually do have to have a land survey done before you can get a permit for a septic tank. Even if it's not actually required, having your land survey to turn in when applying for the permit that is necessary to have a septic tank installed on the property can help you speed up the process and increase your chances of having your permit application approved.

If you're working with a septic tank installation company to have a septic tank installed on your property, they might recommend that you have someone come out to do a land survey first. Even if this has not been recommended to you, it's smart to have it done. Then, you can make sure that you are completely ready to have your new septic tank installed.
