Pro Septic Tanks begins with a comprehensive site evaluation, considering access to the property, the proposed location for the septic tank, and any nearby water sources that could be affected by the installation.
Percolation tests are crucial to ascertain the drainage rate of the soil. This involves digging small test pits and observing how quickly water drains away. The data collected here is vital for designing a system tailored to your land’s specific conditions.
Our experts assess the layers of soil, noting the presence of clay, silt, sand, gravel, or organic material. Different soil layers can significantly affect the movement and treatment of effluent from your septic system.
If the effluent cannot percolate properly, it will either surface on your property or back up into your home. This not only poses a health risk but also incurs additional expenses for emergency repairs or complete system replacement.
An improperly installed septic system can leach pollutants into the soil and surrounding water bodies, causing irreparable damage to local ecosystems and potentially incurring legal penalties.
Choosing to ignore soil testing can lead to higher expenses down the line. You may face ongoing maintenance issues, premature system replacement, and non-compliance fines.Contact our Team
