A septic system installation is a complicated undertaking that requires careful planning and years of professional experience. The first step is to complete a detailed soil and topography analysis to ensure that septic system installation can take place. Then, the type of system will be chosen and installed. If you already have a system and it needs to be removed before installing the new one, that will be completed as well.

Analyzing the Ground

At Clark Septic, our team will determine your property’s soil type and analyze how quickly the wastewater will be able to flow through it. We also look for any restrictions like high water tables and easements.

Types of Septic Systems

There are three kinds of septic systems:

  • In-ground gravity: These include tanks and lines that direct the treated wastewater to drain fields. Here, the liquid is safely absorbed into the ground.
  • Holding tanks: Holding tanks store water and sound alarms when it’s time for them to be pumped.
  • Advanced systems: Some homes need pretreatment systems to help their septic tanks process the wastewater. Examples include mound systems, media filters, and aerobic units.

Parts of a Septic System

A septic system installation includes your new septic tank, a distribution box, an access hatch, and sewer pipes. We will also prepare the drain field, recommend inspection and maintenance schedules, and go over the dos and don’ts of using it.
