Are you in the marketing for converting your septic system to sewer in the Everett or greater Seattle area? An important part of the septic to sewer conversion process is determining whether or not your property requires a lateral line. A lateral line is an underground pipe that connects from the main sewer line to the house’s waste plumbing. Depending on local regulations, you may be required to install a lateral line in order for your property’s septic system to be converted to a sewer system. In some areas, lateral lines must be 1500 feet or less in length. If your property requires a lateral line that is longer than 1500 feet, you may need to install additional piping or take other steps to ensure the conversion complies with local regulations.
Benefits Of Converting Your Septic System To Sewer
There are a lot of benefits to converting, as a septic system requires a lot of maintenance and can eventually break or fail, which can be expensive and time consuming. Converting to sewer eliminates these costly costs and provides five major benefits to the homeowner:
- Improved Air Quality: Septic systems produce methane gases that can impact the air quality in your home. By converting to sewer, these gases will be eliminated, improving the air quality in your home.
- Reduced Risk of Contamination: Septic systems can become contaminated over time and eventually leak into groundwater, causing harm to surrounding areas and wildlife. By converting to sewer, you are reducing the risk of contamination.
- Increased Property Values: A converted sewer system is more attractive to potential buyers, which can result in an increase in property values.
- Reduced Maintenance: Maintaining your 500-gallon septic tank and its associated components can be costly and time consuming. Converting to sewer eliminates these costs, freeing up time and money for other activities.
- Greater Peace of Mind: Knowing that your 500-gallon septic tank is not going to cause any harm or inconvenience to yourself, your family, or the environment provides a greater sense of peace of mind.
