Why You Need Professionals for Your Sanford Septic Tank and Leach Field Installation
We’re Soil Experts
You might not know this, but soil plays a huge role in your septic system’s function, and sometimes soil is the only thing that stands between a functional septic system and a failed one. Before your leach field (also known as a drain field) is designed, a soil analysis needs to be conducted.
The design of the leach field is based on the soil test results, since it will show how effective the soil is at filtering and removing contaminants from the wastewater as it moves through the leach field. Many septic leach fields will fail because they are undersized for the soil type, or the property has a high seasonal groundwater table.
We’ve Installed Many Septic Tanks
Your septic tank can be expected to last a few decades on average. That means that if you decide to install it yourself, it might be your first time. Acme Environmental Services has been providing Sanford septic tank and leach field installation for over 30 years, and we lost count of the number of septic tanks we’ve installed a long time ago.
If your septic tank isn’t watertight, water can not only leak out of your septic system, it can also leak in. If water is entering your system, it can result in hydraulic overloading, which will stress your septic system and lead to inadequate treatment of the wastewater. If water is leaking out of your septic system, it can create health hazards if it contaminates the groundwater.
You don’t want to risk either of these scenarios, so you need a septic company that’s installed more septic systems than you’ll probably see in your lifetime.
Our Service is Unrivaled
Your septic system can be designed perfectly, but if the installation isn’t properly executed, you risk failure and costly repairs. If your leach field isn’t level, wastewater can build up in one area and overload your septic system. If the drainage on the surface of your yard doesn’t divert rainwater away from your septic system, your leach field can become oversaturated.
