There are several choices to make when installing a septic tank. Of course, you'll need to choose the type and size of the tank that's appropriate for your needs. Concrete and plastic tanks are both options. The type of pump is also important if you want to prevent blockages that will cause you to need septic tank repair in Spokane, WA. Septic tanks are typically designed based on the number of bedrooms in a home.
An important aspect of installing a septic system in Spokane, WA, is the drain fields that make up the percolation or discharge area, which filters liquid discharge known as effluent. The size of the drainage area depends on the soil conditions in the area. For this reason, it's necessary to perform a soil percolation test. If sewage will leak to a stream, we may also need to install a packaged sewage treatment plant.
During septic tank replacement in Spokane, WA, the tank must be properly connected to the drainage system. The percolation field requires proper ventilation, and the tank lid should remain accessible. Because most companies have septic hoses no longer than 30m, the tank should be within that range from the driveway, and local laws dictate how far septic tanks must be from home and property boundaries.
Although some people are tempted to install their own septic systems, it's easy to slip an important step such as a soil percolation test, getting the right permits, or even purchasing materials required by this jurisdiction. Tanks and drain fields can both collapse if the installation is done poorly. To ensure septic tank installation in Spokane, WA, is done right, you will need to call in the professionals.
