Carrie's Construction Tips

Welcome to my blog. I'm Carrie and I would like to share some of the top tips I have learnt about construction and repair work in the home. My passion is for buying old property and carrying out work on them to bring them into the 21st century. I started out doing this a couple of years ago. I used some money I had inherited to buy a wreck of a place and if I am honest, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I was really lucky to find some great contractors who helped me out a lot and taught me lots of very cool things.

If you're in the process of building a new home, you also need to design a new wastewater treatment system. You might think that designing a wastewater treatment system will be an easy process, but that may not be the whole truth. In fact, issues with your wastewater treatment system could result in serious problems for you down the road. That's where the information described here comes in handy. Here are four steps that will help you avoid problems with your new residential wastewater treatment system.

Start With the Site Studies

When designing a residential wastewater treatment system for your new home, it's important that you start with the site studies. Site studies will allow you to identify potential issues that need to be resolved. During the site studies, your property will be inspected for issues involving soil erosion, soil condition, runoff and climate conditions that could affect the wastewater treatment system. 

Design the Right System

Once the site studies have been conducted, you'll need to design the most effective system for your property. There are a number of issues that need to be considered when designing the actual wastewater treatment system. Some of those issues include the size of your home, the number of people who will be living in your new home and any local regulations that need to be followed. This information is used to design a wastewater treatment system that will provide maximum benefit for your new home. 

Seek Council Approval

If you're in the process of designing a new wastewater treatment system for your new home, you'll need council approval before you can proceed with the construction. To obtain approval, you'll need to show that your system can provide effective wastewater treatment and that you have plans for continued maintenance and monitoring. After you have all of the necessary documentation, you can submit your wastewater design to your local council. Once you've obtained approval from your local council, you can proceed with your plans. 

Schedule Installation

If you have everything in place for the construction of your new residential wastewater treatment system, now's the time to arrange for installation. If you've decided to install the system on your own, you need to rethink that decision. Professional installation will ensure that all necessary regulations are followed. In addition to that, professional installation will also help you to avoid issues that could interfere with the performance of your wastewater treatment system.
