Any project on a home can seem intimidating in its scope. Installing a sewer system may be the most nervewracking of all home projects. If this installation isn’t done correctly, repairs will be expensive. Not to mention, any issues are also quite smelly. But there is no reason for a homeowner to stress about this project. Installing a sewer system is a breeze for a professional.

Types Of Sewer System Installations

Depending upon your needs or the location of the installation, the kind of installation done on your sewer will be different. These are the varying types of sewer system installations.

Completely new sewer system – if your property is a brand new build and you do not connect to a local or county system, you will need a brand new system installed on your property.

Sewer line extensions – these are lines that you need to be installed that will connect your property directly to a municipal system.

A professional technician will tell you what type of system you need for your property. Should your system installation require the decommission of your septic tank, make sure your technician can handle that service as well. The tanks will need to be sealed and handled per specific environmental guidelines.

What To Expect During The Sewer System Installation Process

What exact steps your contractor takes depends on the type of system that is being installed. A completely new system will clearly require the most work. That system will need ground dug up and pipes, tanks, drainfields, and anything else built and installed. There is nothing in the ground for contractors to deal with. Other sewer system installations will build off of parts of systems that already exist. These installations shouldn’t take as long or be as labor-intensive.

Roadblocks For Sewer Systems

Anything built under the ground can encounter issues straight from Mother Nature. That is why it is important to have a professional design and build your system. There is no way to make any sewer system resistant to nature, but professional technicians can do their best to make sure there is less interference.

One of the biggest problems for sewer systems is tree roots. These grow at-will without much rhyme or reason. They are responsible for the destruction of pipes or issues with your sewer tank. Another culprit is the pipes themselves. If they aren’t made from quality material, they can crack, corrode, and become unable to operate. They could also collapse or become misaligned. Professional companies can help your system avoid roots and will use quality pipes that avoid these issues.
