Technician installing a new septic tank in a residential yard

Septic Installation

Skill and attention to detail are foundational to our septic tank installation process. From soil type analyzation to filtration testing, we follow key steps in order to provide top-quality installations. Before we begin this process, it must be determined whether or not your property has the land space for an access hatch, a drain field, and a septic tank. We will also need to check the soil, terrain, and building size, which will determine the gallons per day. Once we have that information, we will let you know what to expect when your new septic tank is installed.

Soil Analysis

After it is confirmed that your yard space meets the necessary size requirements, we will inspect and identify the soil types on your property. Our professionals will excavate portions of your yard in order to analyze the topography and soil types; this is important due to water flow conditions depending on ground layer levels.

Percolation Testing

In order to analyze the varied soil layers and identify how water can properly flow through them, our technicians will dig test pits within the excavated section of your property. This filtration testing is referred to as hydraulic loading and is designed to calculate water rates through each type of soil.

Pipe Installation

After we place your new septic tank in the ground and inspect it for any cracks or other signs of damage, we will begin installing pipes that connect from the tank to your home and also within your drainfield. Once these pipes are correctly placed, we perform a number of tests that will ensure your septic tank is watertight and ready to be buried.
