Spotlight on the Septic System Installation Process

When you are planning on building a home that is located far away from municipal sewer lines, you will need to install a septic system. Your septic tank and lines will take the place of a conventional sewer system, and will ensure that your home’s wastewater is properly managed. With assistance from a contractor that specializes in septic tank installation in San Francisco, you can rest assured that your tank, drain field, and lines have been properly placed. If you are gearing up to plan a new septic system, here is an overview of the septic system installation process. sewer - lines

Site Evaluation

The first step of any septic system installation is a thorough evaluation of the installation site. In order for your septic system to work properly, it must be located on a slope that is lower than the foundation of your home. Once an appropriate site has been found, your technicians will also analyze the soil to make sure that it will be able to properly handle septic waste.

Holding Tank Installation

After the appropriate site has been chosen and the soil quality has been tested, your contractors will start the work of installing your septic tank, which is also known as a holding tank. The job of the septic tank is to separate solid waste from liquid wastewater. To ensure the safety of your family and the surrounding environment, your septic tank will need to be placed in a pit that is deep underneath the surface of the ground.

Drain Field Creation

The drain field is an essential component of any septic system. After solid waste has settled in the bottom of the septic tank, the liquid wastewater will flow into the surrounding drain field. As the soil particles in the drain field absorb the wastewater, they will make sure that the surrounding areas are clean and free of contamination. If you have additional questions about the septic installation process, be sure to get in touch with an experienced contractor.
