Typical Timeline

Keeping things moving for you and your family.

No one wants to wait forever to get their property services up and running. A typical septic system installation is more efficient than people often think. While each situation is different, here’s what you can typically expect:

Engineer design

This usually takes 2-3 weeks from the time of your first phone call.

Schedule confirmation

During this process, we’ll be in regular communication with you. Let us know when your permits are done so we can schedule the work as soon as possible.

New system installation

This usually takes 1.5 - 2.5 weeks depending on the size and type of system installed.
