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. They are either retiring, or they have a slower pace of completing jobs. This is exacerbated when there are less tradespeople who enter this industry.
“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 don’t know the cause of the problem, but it is imperative that the industry attracts new employees or else the situation will only get worse. These two factors are crucial because we don’t have the resources to do as much. 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.”
