Step 1: Choosing Your New Septic Tank
Septic tanks come in a variety of materials, including concrete, plastic and fiberglass, and a variety of sizes. In order to determine which tank is best for you, your septic tank installer will take into consideration local codes as well as the size of your family. The more waste you have going down the drains, the larger the tank will have to be! Of course, budget also plays a factor in any purchase, and we will work with you to choose a tank that accommodates your family’s output and isn’t too expensive.
Step 2: Decide Where the Drain Field Will Be Located
The drain field (sometimes called a leech field) is the area that will be absorbing your wastewater. It is vital that the drain field is far away from rivers, streams, and other bodies of water, as well as ground water or well water systems. If the drain field is anywhere near your drinking water or your community’s drinking water, it will have very hazardous consequences for everything that lives in the area, including plants and animals. This is one reason why it’s always a good idea to hire a qualified, experienced septic plumber for your septic tank installation.
Step 3: Determine the Length of Your Drainage Pipe
Once your tank and drainage area have been selected, all that’s left is determining the length of the pipe that will lead to the septic tank area. In order for the pipe to accurately drain sewage from your home to your tank, it needs to be installed at a slope, so that gravity can do most of the work. If the pipe is installed improperly, sewage will frequently back into your home’s pipe system because it cannot drain at the rate it needs to. Hiring a qualified septic plumber from Eastern Septic will ensure that your septic tank system works properly and meets all local, state and federal laws and regulations.
