Q: If I had a 2-bedroom septic before the fire and am rebuilding a 2 bedroom home can I use the existing septic system if it passes inspection even if its not designed to today’s code?

A: Yes, if your existing septic system is permitted for the same number of bedrooms that you’re rebuilding, and passes inspection, you can reconnect to it even if it was installed under older codes. However, your square footage is limited based on how many bedrooms your septic was approved for.
