The other day I was talking to an owner who was thinking about listing his cottage when the topic of the septic system came up, as it naturally would. As we chatted he mentioned that there seemed to be some problem with the system and upon further investigation discovered that the septic tank was an old metal tank which appeared to be in bad repair. As he really wasn’t sure what to do, he asked my advice. I checked with the area Health Unit and was told that the best way to deal with a possible failing septic system is to contact a local licensed installer. Have the installer determine the problem and advise what remedy your system needs. Once advised, obtain an application from the area Health Unit for any remedial action. Once your application is approved, contact your septic installer. A complete list of installers for this area can be found on the Kingston Frontenac Lennox Addington Health Unit (KFLA) website. Your local Health Unit also has lots of helpful brochures on types of septic systems available.
