The drain field is one of the most critical parts of a residential or commercial septic system. If you’re building a new home or breaking ground on a new business facility and need a septic system, it’s important for you to know a little about it beforehand. In this article, Quality Septic Inc. of Plant City, FL, would like to share three important considerations for your drain field installation as you plan a new septic system.

Residential and commercial septic systems must be able to handle the amount of usage they get every day. Whether you have a large business operation or a small household of four people, your daily septic system usage needs to be estimated.

When our crew installs a new drain field or complete septic system, we help our customers determine the ideal size for the drain field and septic tank. If these components are too small, there could be backups down the line and the need for constant pumping. If they’re too large, they’re a waste of your money.

2. Soil evaluation

Before any drain field installation begins, it’s important to consider the condition and quality of the soil in which your new drain field will sit. Because your drain field releases wastewater back into the ground, your soil must be capable of handling this process.

Drain field soil can be modified if necessary. A reputable septic services company will do a soil analysis and a close visual inspection of the soil in preparation for a drain field installation. Never allow an installation to proceed without a soil evaluation and general land survey.

3. Location of the drain field

Choosing the location for your drain field installation will depend in part on the amount of space available and the type of soil present. But there are other considerations that are just as important. You want your drain field installed in a space that won’t be affected now or in the future by landscaping.

This means you don’t want to place the drain field in an area that’s susceptible to invasion by tree roots or where major planting and cultivating will be taking place. You also want a space that won’t be driven over by vehicles.
