Options for Your Rome, NY, Septic System Installation
You'll find a variety of options during your septic system selection process, and the professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing have the knowledge and experience to guide you in your selection. We will take several factors into account to help you decide, including:
- System design: A typical septic system consists of a tank to hold waste and a drainage system to filter that waste back into the soil. Based on the type of soil you have, certain drainage systems may work better than others. To determine your soil type, we will analyze your soil content to better understand the needs of your property and any design challenges the soil may present.
- Tank size: The bigger the tank, the more waste it can hold and process. Larger tanks are beneficial because they require less maintenance and can perform for longer intervals between cleanings. For an average family home, we recommend a tank that can hold at least 1,000 gallons. For larger homes or buildings with higher water usage, such as multi-family homes, a larger tank will fit the bill.
- Pump type: Most systems require a pump. The two types of pumps you will choose from are centrifugal and turbine. Each type has different price points and maintenance requirements. The best choice for your system will depend on your budget and the amount of pumping you require.
How to Make the Most of Your New Septic System
A new septic system is an investment. To make sure you get the most out of that investment, be sure to schedule regular maintenance. We recommend a yearly check for cracks, leaks and other damage to reduce the risk of major issues developing. Depending on the amount of use your septic system gets, you may want to schedule more frequent maintenance inspections, such as semi-annual or seasonal appointments.
Approximately every three to five years, you should have your septic tank pumped to remove waste and sludge that can be collected at the bottom of the tank. You can minimize this buildup by being careful about what goes down your drains and avoiding substances like grease and large food pieces.
