Normally, asking around for the opinions of others before plunging into a new project is very beneficial. We would advise you to do this as much as anyone else. However, and pretty much by accident, we discovered an exception to this prudent rule.
Hamilton and Butler Counties have particularly intimidating rules concerning septic system standards. Had we inquired for opinions instead of just doing our job, we would have been filled with fear and trembling while approaching inspectors. Fortunately for us, we simply applied our conscientious standards and adhered to the published rules before we realized how much we were supposed to be afraid of them.
That's the best way we can figure to explain why there's so much trepidation among our peers. The idea that we are the only ones able to measure up isn't really plausible, but it almost seems that way so we can offer you our same sense of relaxation about your septic system. Since we didn't go in expecting the worst, we'll just accept it as a competitive advantage and pass those benefits on to you.
This discovery did prove that attitude is important. We've established a relationship of cooperation with local authorities and inspectors so they know we're not trying to pull anything over on them. Talk to us about your septic system. The local codes are designed to make the community better, not to make your inspections more miserable.
