Septic tank installation in Spokane, Washington

Septic tank installation in Spokane, Washington, should be preceded by a carefully thought out design plan.  The plan should incorporate the type of tank chosen, and the location for both the septic tank and the attached leech field. The layout should be drawn onto the proposed house plans and Vietzke Trenchless recommends the homeowners save these plans for years to come. The design plans will help you base future landscaping decisions and vehicle pathways around where the septic tank and its connecting leech field lie in your yard or field.

It is highly recommended that vehicles do not drive on top of the tank or the leach field. No sheds or outbuildings should be placed over the area, and planting trees to close to the leach field is not recommended. There are three reasons for our team to be thorough and precise. If the soil surrounding the leech field becomes overly compacted, the soil will no longer be able to provide the waste absorption rate that was originally calculated and a possible breakdown of the septic system could occur. Tree roots can grow over the years to surround and break the leach field piping. The tree trunks can also expand over decades and cause difficulty should a septic system need digging up and replacing.

About Vietzke Trenchless

Homeowners insurance typically does not cover septic systems. If errors in landscape planning cause a failure of the septic system, your homeowner’s insurance will not be able to help cover the cost. Vietzke Trenchless recommends careful planning over the years to prevent such difficulties. In addition, when you work with us to have a septic system installed, we make sure homeowners have a choice of which septic tank types they want to install.

Steel tanks will last approximately 20-30 years. Plastic tanks generally last 30-40 years. The best septic tank is the concrete type because it will last 40+ years. However, the homeowner has to weigh cost against longevity when choosing a septic tank type. Vietzke Trenchless has a full staff of very experienced technicians who can help you determine the best choice for your property, and your future expectations and plans.

How To Determine Which Septic Tank Is Right For Spokane Homeowners

The size of the septic tank required is determined using two factors. First, the number of bedrooms is used to estimate the possible number of people that could be using the bathrooms, and secondly, the home’s square footage also needs to be taken into consideration. Depending on the number of bathrooms and the square footage, we will determine the best corresponding tank size for your septic system.
