Septic System Information

Septic systems are site specific and many factors go into deciding the type of septic system that is best suited for your property.  Due to soil characteristics, septics can change considerably from site to site.  Some of the factors include but are not limited to the size of the property, the type of soil which is typically determined by a soil analysis test, the number of bedrooms in the home, and local regulations. 

Some septic systems will be designed as a conventional, or gravity fed system while others will be more advanced requiring additional components.  These additional components assist in the effectiveness of the septic design and can get quite elaborate.
