Septic System Basics
When drain field systems need to be replaced or installed, it is important to have someone come to check the soil in the drain field or proposed drain field. Different soil types are more or less permeable than others. Professionals run soil tests, called a percolation test, which checks how the water moves through the soil. Some soils do not allow water to move through it readily and drain fields cannot be made. Local government agencies may have records of soil types, but it is still recommended that you have your soil tested, sometimes the council or city records may be incorrect; having the soil tested can save you the hassle of having an above ground septic tank installed. Septic systems do take more care than sewer systems. Unlike sewer systems, septic systems are wholly the responsibility of the home-owner. Having a professional plumbing service inspect and work on your septic system increases the life span and functionality of the system. If work does need to be done, these same professionals are best suited and licensed to take care of your septic plumbing needs.
