Reasons to Consider Homes with Septic Systems
Are you planning to buy a new home this year? If you’ve been viewing houses with a realtor, it’s likely you’ve run across many homes with septic systems. You may be hesitant about considering them. You might worry that dealing with septic tank pumping andseptic repairs would be too complicated. Don’t dismiss homes with septic systems so hastily, however. If you’ve never owned a home with a septic system, here’s what you should know before making your decision.
1. Lots of People Have Them
If you’ve never lived in a home with a septic system before, you may be unaware of just how common they are. It’s true that cities provide plumbing for the majority of residents, but approximately 25% of homes have septic systems.
2. They Aren’t Difficult to Maintain
Septic systems are actually quite easy to maintain. Once you find a reliable septic service company, keeping up with scheduled inspections and tank pumping is a breeze. Frankly, the septic tank installation was the most difficult element and, if you’re buying a new home, that part is already done!
3. There’s No Impact on Drinking Water
Many first-time septic system owners worry that the system will have a negative impact on drinking water. Fortunately, this isn’t the case. The home will either have a private well on the property or receive drinking water from the city.
