Septic System Vs Municipal Sewage

The majority of people are connected to a municipal sewage system which is serviced by the municipality but if you live in a rural area or an area where there is no sewage you will need to install a septic system. While you may feel tempted to install drainage on your own and save money in the process it would not be a smart move on your part. The drainage needs to be set up properly to allow for the efficient functioning of the septic system. If the system does not drain properly and there is a lot of rain in the forecast you could find your basement or front yard full of raw sewage! Given the risks it makes sense to find contractors that specialize in Toronto drain installation.

Proper Way to Screen Drain Installation Contractors

There is a sequence of questions you have to ask when trying to determine whether the drain installation contractor you are reviewing is going to be a suitable prospect.

·    Has the contractor been installing septic drainage systems for a long time? There are some firms that talk about how many years they have been in operation. What you could do to further qualify the contractor is find out how many septic drainage systems they have installed in the last couple of years. This will give you some insight into their overall experience level.

·    Does the contractor guarantee the quality of their work? Without a guarantee in place you are open to additional costs in the event the drainage system fails due to poor quality workmanship. To address this risk you should ask the contractor to draft up the guarantee in writing and itemize what the guarantee covers and what it does not. Without this document you have no way of knowing what is covered and what is not.

·    Does the contractor offer financing? This is not a deal breaker but if the contractor offers financing to clients you might consider taking advantage of it. These septic drainage systems can be rather expensive so it would be nice to spread the payments out over time.

After you have filtered through the list of candidates the number of potential candidates should be greatly reduced. Now you can schedule in-person meetings with the contractors to determine which one is going to best meet your needs. This is a visceral exercise but follow your instincts, if you don’t trust the person you should not hire them for this important job.
