If you’re moving into a new mobile home, you need to make sure everything is ready before you settle into your new home. Many mobile homes are located in out-of-the-way areas that don’t have municipal water or sewer hookups. Instead, these homes rely on wells and septic systems.
If your mobile home is going to be placed in its final location soon, you’re likely about to get the septic system installed on the property. Septic system installations are similar for mobile homes and stick-built homes since septic systems themselves are relatively simple in design.
You need a lot of space for the septic system because it needs to have a lengthy leech field.
This part of the septic system consists of long perforated pipes that allow treated wastewater to escape into the soil. Since the wastewater is treated, it is a safe system.
The tank itself will have to be buried deeper than the leech field components. It should be placed relatively close to the mobile home. Mobile home hookups for septic systems are slightly different than those used on stick-built homes, so make sure your contractor uses the right septic hookup.
