- When installing a new septic system or replacing an old septic system there are a few different steps that need to be done
- The first step in the process is Soil Testing
- Soil testing is the step that helps us gather all the information needed to properly design and price a system. We schedule a time with the local Health Department and meet them at the property. Deep holes are dug (approximately 6’-10’ deep) with an excavator for the Registered Sanitarian to read and sample the soils. A percolation hole is also dug and filled with water to determine the rate of which the soil will absorb the water. All this information is gathered within a few hours and documented and put on public file for the property.
- The next step is Design
- With the information gathered during the Soil Testing as well as, topography of the yard, lot size, and equipment access the design process starts. Always keeping price in mind we work with the property owner to determine the best type, layout, and location of the system. Once a design is created, it is submitted to the Health Department for approval, and then the project can begin.
- The Final step is the Install
- When installing a septic system there is usually significant excavation of the yard. Before the excavation starts we communicate with the property owner to go over the scope of work and note any plantings, walkways, walls, or other important things that need to be removed and replaced in the end. We then work with the Health Department to inspect the installation process to ensure everything is up to code and meets the design plan as well as our vendors to make sure all products are delivered on time and to the highest quality. Once the septic system is installed and inspected we carefully backfill the system and regrade the area. When the system is graded off, we then rake, seed, and apply straw to stabilize the area to reestablish growth. All documents are submitted to the Health Department and an as-built, and user information is sent to the property owner.
