Bentonville AR – BBB Septic Solutions, one of the leading providers of Septic Pumping, Septic Installation, and Septic Design in NorthWest Arkansas, is warning potential customers who are in the market for a brand new septic system install to book sooner rather than later as there is nearly a six-month delay due to a scarcity of supplies and skilled labor.
Previously when starting a brand new job from scratch, it would take an average of approximately six weeks, but those same jobs are now taking approximately six to nine months as there simply are not the skilled workers available to complete the soil testing and system design. One of the factors contributing to this problem is a shortage in supply due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but perhaps a more significant issue is that the number of skilled workers within the industry is shrinking. Either they are retiring or just slowing down in the number of jobs they are completing, exacerbated by a reduction in the number of new tradespeople entering this profession.
“There is a real problem for the industry as a whole, and potentially in the future, if we cannot attract the younger generations to work within the Septic Niche,” said Jon Jouvenaux of BBB Solutions. “I do not know what the problem is, but the industry needs to attract new staff, or the problem is only going to get worse. This comes at a time when we have never been busier, but obviously, we are limited in how much work we can achieve by these two critical factors. There is also a lot of volatility in the cost of materials, which means that most estimates are only valid for a period of two weeks because otherwise it is virtually impossible to price up a job.”
BBB Septic Solution launched in 1987, with just one small septic tank truck and one small portable toilet truck (for the portable toilet side of their business). They now have 16 trucks in their fleet and own an assortment of excavation equipment. This allows them to service more customers without having to hire out for the necessary equipment to do the work. Each of their licensed and fully-trained technicians is hand-picked by their management team to provide the most complete septic tank services in Northwest Arkansas from Rogers, AR, to Fayetteville, AR. They are now a top trusted septic service provider in Northwest Arkansas. They have the highest level of credibility with the Arkansas Department of Health, the Bella Vista POA, and ACC and Wastewater Departments throughout the region.
