Advice from One Homeowner to Another

It’s all about protecting the ones you love most… Can you imagine what might happen if your child, grandchild, or pet plays in a yard that is contaminated by seepage from a faulty septic system? The results can be disastrous! Untreated human waste is a primary source of E-Coli - bacteria so deadly that it can cause serious illness or even take the lives of those you love.

Commercial Developer
Ever tried to develop a property where there is no municipal sewer system? If so, you will probably agree that the single greatest challenge faced by developers of suburban and rural properties is providing reliable sewer service. For many residential developments, the developer has significantly enlarged lot sizes to assure there is enough space for each lot to have its own residential septic system.

Sound Advice for the Septic Tank Installer
As an installer, you can’t afford tanks that
- aren’t delivered when promised
- don’t line up with your inlet pipe
- take longer to install
- fail during installation or during the first few months of use

Each of these
costs you money and needless frustration!!!
