You won’t need to worry about the quality of your land after the installation.

New System Design Process
- The process begins with finding a suitable area on your property to install a new system. This spot will be flagged off to protect the potential seepage area.
- A local agency’s S.E.O. is contacted and scheduled to visit your property to identify soils types of the potential seepage bed area to a depth of 7′. Based on the soils found, the S.E.O. determines a depth to conduct a percolation test. Our company will then dig multiple post holes within the proposed seepage area to the proposed depth.
- On the following day, the actual percolation testing is conducted. A flotation device is inserted into our post hole and is filled with water to obtain a measurement of drainage. The testing is conducted in 10 or 30-minute intervals. After each interval, the post hole is filled with water to create a constant variable and measure drainage into the soils. This process is repeated until soils yield four consecutive readings to within a ¼”. All readings are then calculated and averaged to determine how long it will take the seepage area to drain one inch of effluent.
- All results from the identification of soils and the percolation testing determine the type of system, size, and depth designed by our firm to meet state codes. The design is then submitted to the local agency for their approval to install the system.
