Installing a septic system

It may seem like a complicated project, but a septic installation is relatively straightforward in most cases – at least it is for a crew that understands the process inside and out.
There are four primary steps involved in a quality installation.

1. Preparation

Before septic installation itself can begin, it’s necessary to prepare your property. Our team begins by surveying your property to determine the best location for the tank and to identify any obstructions that may impede our excavation equipment. Preparation also involves taking care of necessary permits and ensuring that everything is up to code.

2. Excavation

The next step in septic installation is excavation. For this work, we use earthmovers to dig the holes for your septic tank, drain field and other components. During excavation, we’ll make sure that the surrounding area is graded properly to prevent flooding.

3. Installation

After the holes have been dug, it’s time to install the septic tank, the drain field’s network of pipes and everything else that a reliable septic system requires. We bring more than 25 years of experience to septic tank installations, so you can count on us to do the job right the first time.

4. Backfill

Now that the tank, drain field and piping have been put into place, the final step is to cover your new septic system with the dirt we removed and make your yard smooth and seamless once again. We’ll also mark the access points so they’re easy to find for future maintenance needs.

Quite a bit goes into a septic system install. Fortunately, when the job is done correctly, your involvement will be minor. Once your system is up and running, your main responsibility is to make sure your tank and the overall system receives the necessary maintenance and whatever periodic repairs might be needed.

We suggest once-a-year septic pumping for most of our residential customers. We also recommend a simple service agreement that ensures your septic system receives the cleaning and maintenance it needs to prevent backups and other problems down the line.
