If you are building a house not served by a municipal service system, you will need a septic system. Depending on your location, specifically the soil condition, you may be able to install a conventional septic system. More challenging soil situations require a non-conventional septic system. Our experienced team can design and install a septic system that will be suited to your unique needs and situation.
New Septic System types
Depending on the results of a percolation test (also known as perc test) and your terrain, your site might be eligible for a conventional septic system, which relies on gravity and percolation through a leach field (soil treatment area) to treat waste water.
For sites where the ground water level is too high, percolation is too fast or too slow, or surrounding terrain does not permit a conventional system, a more innovative solution, the non-conventional septic system, is needed. There are several different ways to ensure safe and effective treatment of wastewater, each catered to your specific situation.
Which septic system is right for you?
