Septic System InstallationIn order to complete a timely and effective septic system installation, three major components must be considered. Additionally, to minimize delays and make sure that your system meets your property’s needs, it’s important to work from the beginning with a group that understands the local regulations regarding septic system installation, the permitting process, and your site.

If working with a knowledgeable firm for the design and installation of your system is important, knowing your property shouldn’t fall far behind. Different terrain will require different solutions, especially for the drain field. The larger the septic tank, the larger the drain field must be in order to effectively and evenly disperse the effluent. The rate at which soil absorbs the effluent will also become a factor while determining the size and the arrangement of the drain field. It’s also important to note that heavy equipment and vehicles will not be able to cross the drain field once it’s installed, as the weight can crack the underground pipes and ruin the system.

The third major component of septic system installation is to calculate the needed size of the tank. The larger the home or business and the more people it serves, the larger the system will need to be in order to effectively and safely process the waste. If your septic system is a replacement for an older system, the needs and requirements may have changed both in terms of the number of people served and intensity of use. Again, working with a group that has experience and expertise in this type of work will ensure a worry-free septic system installation.
