Do you need to replace an old septic tank that’s beyond repair? Do you need a septic tank installation with a larger or smaller tank to accommodate the drain usage in your home or business? Are you developing a new property and need a complete septic system installed?
Quality Septic of Lakeland has provided expert septic tank solutions since 1994. Here are a few points you should know about septic tank installation.
3 Key Elements of a Septic Tank Install
Proper septic tank installation involves a lot more than just throwing a tank into the ground. When we provide this service for our Lakeland customers, there are three key elements we want to make sure we’ve got right.
1. The right septic tank size
We’ll meet with you and talk about many things, including the number of people in your home or business who will be using drains and toilets. This will help us determine the right tank size.
A septic tank that’s too small will require pumping more often to keep it clean. A tank that’s too large is a waste of money.
2. The right understanding of your property’s characteristics
No two land parcels are the same. When we survey a property in Lakeland, we check for the quality and composition of the soil as well as the grade of the land in the area where we want to locate the septic tank (see below).
The soil can be modified if it appears unable to support the tank properly. If the tank and drain field must be placed at an elevation higher than your home, we’ll include a lift station to force the waste from your drains up into the septic system.
3. The right location for placing the tank
Our Lakeland septic installation crew will determine the best location for your new septic tank. We want an area that’s reasonably close to the home or facility. We also want an area that won’t be constantly driven over or invaded by destructive tree roots.
Finally, your new tank should be placed so that workers can access it easily in the future for pumping, repair and inspection projects.
Finishing the Lakeland Septic Tank Installation
After the tank is placed, we’ll connect the drain pipes and check over our work to make sure everything is set up as it should be.
For all septic tank installation projects in the greater Lakeland region, our work will comply with local and state septic system codes and regulations.
