  • Ascertaining the permits required by law
  • Engineering
  • Locating the most efficient area for your system
  • Installations
  • Inspections
  • Backfilling work

A variety of water services are offered as well, and these include repairing pipe leaks and breaks, handling frozen lines, new installations, septic tank pumping (regularly scheduled), or pumping for a time of transfer inspection.

Residential Septic Applications

  • All septic systems start with a septic tank. The number of bedrooms in your home determines the tank size.
    • Up to 3 bdrm=1250gal tank
    • 4 bdrm=1500gal tank
    • 5 bdrm=1750gal tank
    • 6 bdrm=2000gal tank
  • For access and maintenance, all tanks need to be watertight with risers and lids to the surface.
  • The standard lateral system is the best system to put in when the property has good soil conditions. A mound system is the next type of system to go in if the soil conditions are wet or there is a high water table.
  • There should be an effluent filter to filtrate the water leaving the tank to the secondary treatment area, in the outlet side, or lid furthest away from the home.
