Hooking your home up to an available municipal sewer system isn’t a complicated process, though the amount of work involved means it is frequently expensive. To perform a sewer hookup, a mainline must be installed from your home to the municipal system. This involves digging a trench, which may require removing trees and shrubs, breaking through rock and asphalt, and more.
Additionally, if the sewer hookup is a replacement for an existing septic tank, steps must be taken to properly dispose of the old installation. Contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing to arrange for a full site assessment and detailed estimate.
Why Hookup Your Home to a Municipal Sewer
If you have the option of hooking up your home to a municipal septic system, carefully consider the pros and cons. Typically, municipal septic systems require less maintenance. However, if you are currently on a septic system, there will be costs involved in connecting your home. Most municipalities charge a monthly fee to dispose of household waste. On the other hand, septic tanks require periodic evacuation, typically once every three to seven years.
If you’re considering selling your home in the near future, having a municipal sewer hookup will increase its value — though not necessarily more than the cost of having the installation done.
