Learn About 2 Different Methods of Fairfax VA Septic Waste Disposal

Septic Tank Inspection Services

If you are in the process of building a new home, or perhaps your old sewage system was damaged and is in need of replacing, take some time to decide what option is best for you. It’s not always the case that your old system was the best, or perhaps in the 20 or some years since it was installed, there have been some better options discovered. Because of this, you want to make sure to choose the best tank for your Fairfax, VA home in order to minimize the septic tank cleaning costs down the road.

Which septic system to use is mostly going to be defined by the area you live in and your local health regulations. The two main systems that are used are either on on-site system, or a wastewater disposal system. An on-site system is a great option for a single home, but it cannot be used in areas with a high water table, near drinking water supplies, or in flood zones. If you live in a large community in any of these areas, then you more likely be using a wastewater disposal system instead. Many communities in Fairfax, VA use them, and the nice thing about this system is that there is no actual septic tank on your land, so you will not need to pay for a regular septic tank cleaning.

During the installation process take some time to ask your sewage system company what type of system works best for your yard, they will be happy to talk to you about what the best option is. Remember, on-site is for single homes away from water sources, and wastewater disposal works good for a community and is cheaper on the end of the individual homeowner. We hope this information will help you make good choices for your Fairfax, VA home and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call our septic tank cleaning team and ask.
