REQUIRE A NEW SEPTIC SYSTEM, OR AN UPGRADE? AQUAMATIC IS HERE TO HELP YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS
Whether you're installing a septic system in a new home, or replacing an existing septic tank, it is a costly and potentially stressful job and is not a task to undertake lightly. There are regulatory issues that must be addressed, you'll often have to get a permit from your local town, and there are plumbing and environmental issues to consider.
AQUAMATIC will begin by determining how large of a drainage field and septic tank you will require. This decision will be influenced by an estimate of how much wastewater your house is likely to produce (generally based on the number of bedrooms), and by an analysis of the soil in your yard. There are a couple of different tests that septic designers use, including a percolation test ("perc test") and a site evaluation. (A site evaluation is both more intrusive and more accurate -- generally requiring that a number of 6-10 foot holes be dug in your yard by backhoe or similar type excavator.) Installing the holding tank Before choosing the location to install your septic tank, your septic we will need to check local regulations and the soil quality. Most municipalities require tanks and leaching fields to be located a minimum distances from houses, wells streams, etc.The size of your septic system will depend as well on how many bedroom your house has (including any you plan to add down the road!)
INSTALLING THE LEACHING FIELD
The size of your leaching field depends on a number of factors, including the size of your septic tanks, the type and absorptive capacity of your soil, and the particular technology that you've chosen to absorb the wastewater. The exact location of your leaching field within your yard will vary, based on a number of factors, including local regulations, the slope of your yard and your home's location on that slope, and the composition of the soil in different parts of the yard.
