When septic systems are installed properly and kept in good condition, they are efficient, can conserve water and will protect your family from dangerous contaminants. When a system is incorrectly installed or fails, however, it can threaten the health of your family in serious—even fatal—ways.

To protect your property and, more importantly, your family, learn how waste water systems work, what type of system is best for your home, correct installation, best management practices for conserving water and keeping the system in top working condition, and how to troubleshoot common problems. This book has the answers.
