Understanding the Septic Tank Installation Process

Understanding the Septic Tank Installation Process

If you live outside of the city limits, you most likely will need a septic tank. A septic system typically consists of an underground septic tank that is used to treat and store sewage. The tank is usually made of plastic, fiberglass, or concrete. A septic tank is designed to provide treatment for a single residential or commercial property. Vietzke Trenchless explains the processes involved in its installation below:

Soil Excavation

If you need a septic tank installation in Coeur d'Alene, ID, and have an existing tank, the old tank will be removed first. When done, the area will be excavated to make room for the new septic tank. This requires professional technicians to perform an in-depth analysis of the area to prevent problems during and after installation. A backhoe is typically used to excavate the hole.

Tank Installation

During septic tank replacement, the tank will be installed below ground. The location of the tank and field will vary based on your location and a variety of other factors. It’s important to work with a professional company to ensure that your new tank is installed properly.

Tank Inspection

Once the tank is installed, we would install pipes connecting the tank to your house and the leaching field. After this, we will perform an inspection to see if all parts are installed correctly. If we encounter any issues caused by error on our part, we would perform septic tank repair right away. 

System Test and Backfilling

Once the installation is complete, we will thoroughly test your new tank to ensure proper operation and that no leaks exist. After testing, the tank will be backfilled with the proper material to ensure that no foreign debris exists that could create harmful voids.
