How Do I Know if I Have a Septic Tank or Sewer?
Before contacting the professionals, you’ll want to know if you even have a septic tank. Here are a few ways to determine if your property is connected to a sewer or septic tank system.
- Check your water bill: this is the easiest method. If there’s a zero charge, or you don’t receive a water bill at all, you likely have a septic system.
- Look for a water meter: if your home doesn’t have a water meter, you most likely have a well and septic system.
- Location: If you live in a rural area, it’s very likely your home is connected through a septic system. You may consider asking your neighbors.
- Septic tank location records: most counties hold permit records, maps or blueprints for your property.
