Wondering how to install a septic drain field? We can help. Take a look at our process below.
Step 1: Perform A Site Survey
You should first perform a site inspection. Our first in-person inspection is simply a site survey where we do a soil test on the area where the septic drain field is to be installed. In doing so, we’re gathering pertinent information about how to install a septic drain field that fits perfectly with your property.
When we do a site survey, we’re also looking at the topography, available space for the drain field to go, location of the nearest well, and intended water use based on the home or business the system will support.
The soil test is to determine the soil type on your property, layering, and its ability to drain and filter the wastewater. This is an essential step in designing a system that will work best for you.
Step 2: Apply For Appropriate Permits & Wait For Approval
If you’re wondering how to install a septic drain field, we can be the first to tell you that it’s no easy feat and it takes time.
There are many behind-the-scenes steps that even allow us to get to do the physical act of installation – one of which is applying for the appropriate permits. Every county has permits that must be obtained before we can get started.
The proper procedures must be followed to ensure we’re in compliance with any and all laws that are applicable to both plumbing and building codes.
Step 3: Design & Install
Once we get approval, we’re ready to set a date and time for installation. Our highly-trained team will come prepared with all of the necessary permits, equipment and materials needed to complete your installation.
While this may be a lengthy process, it’s critical that you invest in a company that has a positive reputation in the industry and will get the job done right the first time, instead of trying to do it at home, which could be dangerous. Failure to set up your drain field properly could result in incredibly expensive repairs in the future.
Step 4: We Can Provide You With A Free Estimate
When you inquire about one of our services, we always like to provide you with a free estimate so that you know exactly what you’re getting out of your experience with us.
We make every effort to be transparent up front and during the entire process. Once you are given your free estimate, review it and give us the OK to move forward, we will set up an appointment to come out to your property to get started on step one.
All in all, we can assure you that you can trust us to do what needs to be done. For more information about how to install a septic drain field, check out our blog. We have lots of resources that can help educate you on your septic adventures. To schedule an appointment, contact us today.
