Deltona Septic Tank Removal is Important
If you’re getting a new septic tank installed in the existing space, it’s obvious that you would need to remove the old tank. But if you’re thinking of installing your new tank in a different area of your property, or have an old septic tank that’s been abandoned, it’s just as important to have it removed. If a septic tank is left underground, it can create some potentially serious hazards.
Modern septic systems are made of concrete or plastic, but years ago they were made of steel. Some advantages to concrete or plastic septic systems is that they don’t rust over time like a steel septic tank would.
If an old, unused septic tank is left in the ground, it can eventually rot and cause dangerous sinkholes. And even concrete or plastic tanks can break down over the decades and would still need to be removed if unused. You can solve that problem with Deltona septic tank removal.
The Removal Process
Now you might be wondering how the septic tank removal process works. The first step is to pump out and dispose of the contents properly, and then remove any mechanical parts or electrical sensors. Some septic systems have pump alarms, which need to be removed.
The tank would then be disconnected from the septic line leading to the house, and then it can be removed. Once the old tank is gone, you are free to begin the installation of your brand new septic tank.
The entire removal process should be handled by a licensed septic service company like ACME Environmental Services.
Septic Tank Installation
Now let’s get to the good part! That new septic system is ready for install. This can take up to 7-10 days from start to finish, depending on a number of factors like:
- Your location
- Size of your wastewater treatment system
- Local regulations
- That wonderfully unpredictable Florida weather
If you’ve already got the empty hole from your Deltona septic tank removal, you can expect this to take a little less time. And as always, ACME Environmental Services is here for you throughout the lifespan of your septic system. That means maintenance, repairs, cleaning, and more.
