Updating septic system
If you call an engineer or an excavator for an estimate, they will be able to tell you if you just need a larger tank/field, or a full system replacement.I needed a new system to go from 2 to 3 bedrooms, but the original system was a cesspool, so no other choice.In most cases, it’s best to install a new septic system after the home’s outside walls are finished, but before driveways, sidewalks, sod or final grading is done.
Also, if you have to sell the house in a hurry for any reason, you may be scrambling to do the septic in order to close a sale as a 3-4 bedroom.
For a house with five or more bedrooms, you’ll most likely want a 1,500-gallon tank, and that will cost ,000 to ,000.
The cost to replace an existing septic system is ,000 to ,000, depending on the size and complexity of the job.
908-303-1829 Erika Bush, Professional Engineer 908-202-4477 Both of them have shared with me that they are not the septic police. He has been behind the wheel of heavy equipment since he was a kid, and now his son works with him. Unless you plan on selling the home very question..you have the approvals from your zoning officer..the addition...bedroom or etc..you adding another bathroom to your home..might have to get a professional engineer to design a new leach field or upgrade the existing system for your septic system..work with the additional wastewater being discharged from your home..has to be taken into consideration...
They will have private conversation with you and give you your options. He did two septics for us (in two different houses) and he is amazing. (908) 852-1760 I can't recommend him highly enough. The concern with aguy's suggestion is that you may want to add the cost of a system upgrade to any refi you are doing for the addition.
