Hiring​ a Profe​ssional

If you are looking to hire an Onsite Septic System professional, be a good consumer.  Call at least three companies and get bids for the work you need done.  You will encounter a wide range of price, level of education/experience and customer service quality.  Find the right fit for you.  It is important to always employ licensed professionals to perform all work on your onsite sewage system.  Licensed professionals possess adequate experience, education and bonding to do the job right. 

In addition, there are many systems that are proprietary and may require a manufacturer certified professional to service the system.  Failing to hire a manufacturer certified professional could void a system's warranty or mean inappropriate service.  To find out if your system requires certified service providers and obtain a list of professionals in the area, please contact the system manufacturer.
