So, you’ve discovered you need a new septic tank. Now what?
Once you’ve determined your septic tank needs to be replaced, it is important to know the state septic regulations on laws and requirements for septic installations. States regulate wastewater and septic systems through an environmental agency or health department. When conducting maintenance, repair, installation, of a septic system, permits are required. (We make it easy and have provided links to the paperwork needed below!) And here’s a checklist to get you started.
After understanding state regulations a soil evaluation and a “perc test” need to be done. Whats a perc test? A perc test is used to determine the rate of water absorption in the soil. Since the septic tank holds all of home’s wastewater, over time it will overflow into the drain field and into the soil so that it will filter the water before it goes back into the natural underground system.
The next step is to determine what type and size septic tank fits your needs.
After the right septic tank for your home is found, the professionals can begin preparing the right equipment for the job, since heavy machinery is required.
