Septic Issues are NEVER fun, but we promise to make the process of installing your new system as pain free as possible. If you are reading this page, chances are you've noticed some issues recently with your septic from sewage backups to slow drainage or even some pretty horrid smells. If you are not sure what is going on with your system, we are more than happy to come out and diagnose what the problem may be. Sometimes your system may just need a little maintenance, but other times you may need a whole new install. We can help either way!
Have you noticed any of these signs of septic failure recently? If so, it may be time to call in a pro!
Before we can provide a quote, we will need to have permits pulled with the County Health Department. The County will help determine the soil and wastewater drainage to help us decide which septic system is the right style for your home. The type of system will be determined by a soil analysis and the county will help to determine what size system you will need. This is determined by the amount of bedrooms and people in your home.
During a new Install, we will excavate your land to provide space for your new system to go in. We will create space for the Access Hatch, Distribution Box, Drain Field, Septic Tank, and Sewer Pipe to go in. Once we install all of the parts for your septic system, wastewater will flow through each part. The septic tank is where solids go to be separated from liquids, and next the liquids flow into the distribution box. We will dig test pits during this portion to determine how your topography affects reabsorption levels to be sure that no pooling happens. Once all of this is completed, usually about a few days, we can move on to the inspection stage.
In the inspection stage, the county will come out and inspect the entire system to be sure it is up to code. Once the system passes inspection, the process will be complete and we move into the maintenance phase!
Septic systems will always require a little bit of maintenance to be sure you can get the longest life out of the system. You will need to periodically check the ground surrounding your tank to be sure the water is draining properly, as well as checking for the same thing in your drain field. Your tank will also need to be pumped every three to five years to empty it of solids and keep it running smoothly. If you do notice any of the signs of your tank not running properly, just give us a call and we will always be happy to diagnose it for you. We also offer a one year warranty on any installs, and stand behind our work.
