The city of Indianapolis is screwed up. Many of its suburbs fall into this boat as well. You see, although the metro area emcompasses over 1 million people, several homes are not connected to city water and/or sewer.
Last year when we were home shopping, this wasn't an issue because all of the homes we considered were connected in both aspects. This year, however, many of the homes are not connected to one or the other, sometimes both. This doesn't both DH since he grew up in Indy not connected; however, this is bothering me. I've grown up always connected and am unfamiliar with the upkeep/costs of septic tanks and wells.
Does anyone here have one or both? What has your experience been (ie, easy to take care off, a PITA, etc)?
