Key Factors in Drain Field InstallationHere at Quality Septic Inc., we understand that you care about your home, and we believe you deserve to enjoy all the comfort your home can provide. In our experience, few things can ruin that comfort like a septic problem, particularly one involving the drain field. Our experts have the right experience to help you with any septic emergency, but there will still be some cases in which the best solution is an all-new drain field installation. If you find yourself in this position, read on to find out more about the key factors that affect the drain installation process.

  • Size- One of the most important parts of drain field installation and design is making sure the field is the right size. A field that is too small won’t be able to handle all the sewage that it receives every day, and it’s obvious why you’d want to avoid this. Our team at Quality Septic Inc. has the necessary experience to calculate the ideal size for your new drain field so that you never have to worry about this issue.
  • Terrain- Another factor that impacts drain field installation is the terrain of your property. Specifically, you should never install a drain field in an area with a steep slope, as sloped areas are likely to experience rain runoff that can lead to flooding, which in turn will damage your whole system. Fortunately, you can turn to our experts to ensure that your new field is placed in the ideal location.
  • Access- A third consideration in drain field installation is ease of access. Your drain field, like the rest of your septic system, will require regular upkeep, so it’s important that it be easy for maintenance professionals to be able to access it easily when necessary. Our team at Quality Septic Inc. will make sure we install your new drain field with discreet yet convenient access points to make future maintenance a breeze.
