How a New Water Main Hookup Works
Hooking your home to the local municipal potable water line also isn't a very complicated process but having someone that is familiar with the local codes can be a huge benefit. We have made connections to several of the local municipalities over the years and have found that knowing the codes doesn't always serve to be satisfactory for all municipalities. Some have a particular way that they want it done, so being familiar with the locals and there wants will save time and money.
How a Sewer Hookup Works
Hooking your home up to an available municipal sewer system isn’t a complicated process, though the amount of work involved means it is frequently expensive. To perform a sewer hookup, a main line must be installed from your home and connected to your local municipal system. This involves digging a trench, which may require removing trees and shrubs, breaking through rock and asphalt and more. What ever the case may be we can help you through this process and make "Certain" it is done properly to meet all local and state codes.
Additionally, if the sewer hookup is a replacement for an existing septic tank, steps must be taken to properly dispose of the old installation. Contact Certain Plumbing to arrange for a full site assessment and detailed estimate.
Why Hookup Your Home to a Municipal Sewer
If you have the option of hooking up your home to a municipal septic system, you need to carefully consider the pros and cons. Typically, municipal septic systems require less maintenance and there is less leakage that in turn will help protect our local water fronts. However, if you are currently on a septic system, there will be costs involved in connecting your home. Most municipalities charge a monthly fee to dispose of household waste, so make sure you are aware of the extra cost involved with the new connection. On the other hand, septic tanks require periodic pumping or evacuation, typically once every three to seven years.
If you’re considering selling your home in the near future, having a municipal sewer hookup will increase its value — though not necessarily more than the cost of having the installation done.
