Does Florida Homeowners Insurance Cover Septic Repairs?

Great question! In the state of Florida, homeowners insurance is not a requirement. However, if you have a mortgage on your home, homeowners insurance is required to protect the asset (and the bank's security interest). For those whose home utilizes a septic system, you may wonder when does homeowners insurance cover septic systems. The answer is that it varies. As most insurance policyholders know, what's covered and what isn't covered often comes down to what caused the damages, not the damages themselves. That list coincides with some septic best practices and maintenance tips (surprise!). When Does Florida Homeowners Insurance Cover [...]

Sand Mounds and Septic Systems

Owning a Florida home with a septic system comes with its own set of rules. The same goes for installing them. With part of the filtration relying on natural processes, septic systems require help from their surrounding environment to thrive and efficiently treat wastewater. Once pushed through your tank, wastewater enters the drain field (or leach field) for its final treatment. This process happens when the wastewater is pushed out of the perforated tubes into the surrounding soil. As it runs down into the water table, the soil filters out any untreated particulates, making the treated water safe to [...]

Premature Septic Failure

If you install a septic system or purchase a house with an existing system, you hope you have a good long time before needing repairs or replacement. And with septic tanks typically lasting 15 to 20 years, there is a good chance you'll have some time. But if you purchase an older home or aren't following the golden "Do Not Flush" rules, you may find yourself playing with a ticking time bomb. Luckily, there are a few ways to avoid premature septic failure (and the cost that goes with it). Reasons for Premature Septic [...]

What’s Up With Your Septic Pump?

We have said it once, and we will say it again: your septic system has a dirty job. A dirty job that requires all the different components to work together – efficiently — for your septic to properly treat the waste and waster water from your home or business.  If one of those parts isn't functioning well, it could spell trouble for your system.  While many of us think of the two significant septic components, the septic tank, and drain field, we don't often think about the septic pump that connects them.  What Does Your Septic [...]

Signs of Drainage Problems in Your Yard

It's the end of August in Florida. That means hot weather, afternoon storms, and hurricane season. While Florida's soil can handle the rain, once you make changes and add some landscaping, it may not be as ready to handle the downpours.
