Many homes in Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties do not have access to public sewer systems. Therefore, to live in these homes, you need to install a private sewer system known as an on-site septic system to treat your wastewater. At Delaware Valley Septic, Sewer & Storm, we have been offering reliable septic installations and repairs in Gladwyne, Radnor, Villanova, Newtown Square, West Chester and beyond for over three decades. When you find yourself in need of a new septic system installation, you can depend on us!
Quick & Knowledgeable Installation
Not only will we install your new septic system, but we will determine which system is best for your property by using our years of experience and knowledge in the field. Because there are various types of septic systems, some may work better with some soil conditions and property layouts over others. With this in mind, you can rest assured that you’ve received the best system for your particular property when you call on us for a septic installation.
You won’t need to worry about the restoration of your property after the installation. Once your septic system is completed, our team of professionals will restore your lawn area using topsoil, fertilizer, grass seed or sod in order to leave your landscape looking better than before.
New System Design Process
- First, we find a suitable area on your property to install the new system. This spot will be flagged off to protect the potential drain field area.
- The local agency’s sewage enforcement officer (SEO) are contacted and scheduled to visit your property to witness and help identify soil types of the potential seepage bed area to a depth of seven feet. Based on the soils found, the SEO 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.
- The next day, the actual percolation testing is conducted. A flotation device is inserted into our post holes 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 within a ¼ inch. All readings are 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 and a permit will be issued to install the system.
In addition to septic installations, we can convert your home over to public sewer system if it’s available on your street or make any sewer repairs that you may need from our sewer installers. Just like with any septic system installation, we make sure your new sewer installation goes in without a hitch. We work with the homeowner to find the most cost-effective way to go about the sewer installation. Our trustworthy sewer installers make this process a smooth one for any homeowner in the Delaware Valley.
