If you’re looking to install a new septic tank while building a home or need to replace a damaged system, early fall is the best season.
1. Better WeatherThough the days are getting shorter, the weather is more predictable in late summer and early autumn. This means that your technicians will be able to get more work done each day without having to take time away from the project due to heavy snowstorms. Remember, the better the weather, the faster installation will go.
2. Drier SoilNew septic systems are best installed in dry soil. Late summer and early fall are ideal because much of the summer rain has passed and conditions are not quite ripe for heavy snowfall. Since the chance of storms is minimal, the installation crew will be able to work faster without waiting for the soil to dry out before continuing work on the project. During dry conditions, most average-sized systems can be installed in as little as two days.
3. Faster DiggingCold temperatures can quickly freeze the ground, making digging harder. The warmer the soil, the easier digging will be and the faster work will be complete. Though the number of appointments ahead of your installation may be fewer during winter, the process may take far longer overall. It’s best to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to take full advantage of the better weather.
