Pros & Cons to Buying a Home on Septic

Are you in the market for a new home this winter?

Do you want to buy a home with more space, peace, and quiet?


If you’re considering buying a home in a more rural area, most homes that fit that bill will include a septic tank. Before you go ahead with your purchase, consider:


-       Prepare for regular maintenance: When considering buying a home on septic, be prepared to have it inspected every 3 years, and do annual maintenance on it. Typically, you’ll need to have the sludge pumped out and disposed of every few years, which has a small cost associated with it. 

-       Know what can go wrong: If septic systems aren’t properly maintained, problems can occur. Leaks, ruptured and clogged pipes, and a flooded drain field can be a big mess for homeowners. If there’s too much liquid in the tank or drain field, the tank may not drain quickly enough or at all, which can cause backflow problems. Make sure to educate yourself properly before considering buying a home on septic.
