Proper septic tank design is important. Septic systems are specifically designed to dispose of volumes of water-waste in your site, home or business. This system has a specific volume of waste it will hold and must not be overloaded. Also, there are a few waste items that should never be disposed in septic tanks including: Hazardous chemicals and grease.
Properly installed and designed septic systems will function for many years with proper septic tank maintenance. You should have an annual inspection every year to inspect sludge depth and to keep tank solids from become overflowed. Septic tanks that serve a central system including: industrial or commercial facilities, travel trailers, mobile home parks, government institutions, subdivisions and multiple family home units must have a professional engineer design and install their septic tanks for them. Some health departments require an increase lot size to reduce densities in your septic system. Give us a call if you have any questions about septic tank design, installation or maintenance for your septic system.

The location and dimension of your septic system is also important: Drain-fields should be located 100 feet from the closest spring or well and 10 feet from any water supply line but not closer than 50′ from a stream or pond. Drain-field trenches should be level and between 25-36 inches in depth and not exceed 36″ in width. The tile drain should have 12″ of soil over the tile. The aggregate needs to be 6″ deep beneath the drain tile.
Select An Adequate Site (Quick Tips)
- Stay a 100′ away from any drinking source and 10′ away from any water line
- Stay 50′ away ponds or streams
- Slope drain-fields away from the house, water supply and other buildings
- Drain-field should be left in uncovered/non-shaded areas and free from shrubbery and trees
- Leave room for drain-field to be enlarged in the future if needed
- Sewer gas is extremely flammable, never use matches or open flames to inspect the tank
