Since 1994, Quality Septic of Brandon has been helping our customers with complete septic system installations and all the services necessary to keep those systems running safely and correctly. Here’s some important information about septic tank installation.
Septic Tanks Aren’t as Simple as They Look
As simple as a septic tank might seem to be, installing one isn’t a simple process. Many components are involved, and proper training and experience are required to do the job right. The Quality Septic team is fully trained and brings years of hands-on experience to every septic tank installation project in and around Brandon.
The Land & Property
The first step in septic system installation for our Brandon customers is to evaluate your land and property. We want to know the quality of the soil, and we want to determine if there’s a slope in the land where the tank will be installed. We also want to gauge the size of the installation area.
Usually, a standard installation works well for most homes and businesses in and around Brandon. In some cases, an engineered septic system will be needed to compensate for soil problems and other issues. If the tank will be installed uphill from the home, we’ll need to include a lift station to ensure that waste gets to the tank.
Size of the Septic Tank
Two factors dictate the correct tank size:
- The space on the property available for the tank.
- The projected usage of drains and toilets that will be connected to the tank.
When we install a new septic tank and system in the Brandon area, we make sure the tank is the correct size to serve our customers well and keep from causing problems down the line.
Placement of the Tank
Your new septic tank should be placed in an area that’s reasonably close to your home or business facility. It should also be set in an area where heavy vehicles and equipment won’t be driving or parking over it.
It’s important to think ahead, so we want to install the tank in a place where our service crews can easily access it in the future. While a quality tank installed by skilled technicians will do its job efficiently for a long time, it won’t work forever without some maintenance. When this is required, we want to be able to get to the tank.
Quality Septic uses the right heavy equipment to dig the hole for the tank, and we are always careful about underground power lines during the process. (This is one of the reasons for a thorough evaluation before work begins!)
Getting Your Brandon FL Septic Tank Ready to Run
After we’ve placed the tank, we’ll carefully connect it with all the drains and toilets in your home or business and install the drain field. We use a series of correctly sized pipes that are specially designed for this purpose.
We’ll check and double-check our work and share some care and maintenance tips with you. You’ll then be ready to begin using your new septic tank.
