The Right Choice for Your CT septic installation NEEDS
The first step in replacing your septic system consists of determining the type of soil present in your yard. This is required by the local Health Department to ensure that the type of system we install will meet the Public Health Code, specific to your environment. Skips Wastewater Services excavates test holes while a Registered Sanitarian from the Health Department takes soil readings on-site. A percolation hole is dug and filled with water to measure how fast the soil absorbs liquid. An up-to-code design can then be created for your yard.
The System Design
Type of soil, size and topography of the yard, and other variables require different septic system designs. Working with the homeowner, we outline multiple options and determine the best possible type and placement of system for the yard. Once the design plan is approved by the Health Department, a “Permit to Construct” is issued and construction can begin.
Installing the system
Installing a septic system often requires significant excavation of the yard. Topsoil is removed and stockpiled for future use. Any patio, shrub, retaining wall, walkway, that must be removed will be replaced at the end of the job. Pictures are taken throughout the installation process. The Health Department inspects the installation process on-site to ensure that the system is consistent with the design plan. Once the septic system has been installed, it is carefully backfilled and the existing topsoil is replaced. The area is then raked, seeded, and hayed to return the yard to its normal condition.
Abundance of Resources
We are the largest septic company in the State of Connecticut. With three inspectors and eight pump trucks, we have the ability to manage a heavy work load on a day to day basis. Unlike many other companies, we pump all of our own tanks, which makes scheduling and coordinating the inspections and associated pumpouts much easier. We never have to rely on another company for their services, which makes the entire process easier to manage.
Best Overall Service in the Industry
We pride ourselves on providing the best service in the State of Connecticut. We understand that buying or selling a home is an important and exciting time in one’s life, but it can also be stressful. We recognize that time is of the essence, so we always produce thorough, unbiased reports in a timely fashion and we ensure our inspectors are available to answer questions from customers and their realtors about the relevant findings.
Our Mobile App
We are very proud to introduce our very own Skips Wastewater Services mobile application, which can be used to book inspections and can be downloaded for free on the Google Play Store or the Apple Store on any smart phone or tablet. Customers and realtors can simply search for “Skips Wastewater Services” in the relevant app store on their smart phone, download the app and start booking inspections immediately.
We know people are busy, so we created this app to give our customers and their realtors a more efficient way to book inspections. The scheduling process takes less than a minute to complete. Upon booking the appointment, one confirmation email is sent to the customer and another confirmation email is sent to one of our call representatives, who will then call the customer to verify the information necessary to enter the inspection into our system.
As always, we recommend tanks are pumped so a full inspection can be performed. Thus, we reserve a pump out slot for each inspection. For now, this app is only for booking inspections. Thus, the party paying for the pumpout must contact the office to confirm those details separately.
