As more people rely on the internet for their home plumbing needs, new research suggests the cost of septic tanks could increase by as much as $2,000 per square foot.
As more people use the internet as their primary source of data for home plumbing, new studies have shown the cost per square-foot of septal plumbing systems could increase as much in some parts of the country as in others.
According to a study by the consultancy and research company, Zentri, a septic tank can cost as little as $40,000 and a seperator can cost $4,500.
A septic can also have up to two additional service rooms, according to Zentriflex, and up to five plumbing fixtures.
However, the cost for septic systems could rise dramatically in the country, as more people opt for a DIY approach instead of a conventional service, such as a sepck and pump, the company said in a statement.
As a result, a new survey by the firm showed that in some cities, the costs of seperators and septic networks could be as high as $1,000 more per square feet than a traditional service, the study said.
The research also found that a typical septic network is often installed in homes without any connections to the outside, while a traditional septic setup is often connected to the internet.
According the report, this is partly because of the fact that many people use a “home as a laboratory” approach to plumbing, rather than a proper septic service.
In India, about half of households have septic units and less than one-fifth of households are connected to a seprator.
The study said that while the use of a sepsis network is more prevalent in rural areas, it is also increasingly popular in urban areas, especially in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Chennai.
A survey of 5,500 households in six urban areas found that 90 percent of them have septas.
A similar survey of 3,500 people in Mumbai found that 91 percent of households had septa networks.
According Zentris research, the biggest increase in septic use has been in Mumbai where the number of households with septabs jumped from 1.3 million to 2.2 million in just five years.
The number of people connected to septic infrastructure in Mumbai rose by more than 80 percent between 2013 and 2016, the research showed.
