Michigan's Premier Septic Field Installation: Sustainable Wastewater Solutions
A septic drain field installation, also known as a leach field or absorption field installation, is a critical component of a septic system. It is designed to treat and disperse the clarified effluent from the septic tank into the soil, allowing natural biological processes to further break down and purify the wastewater before it re-enters the groundwater.
During a septic drain field installation:
- Site Assessment: The site's soil and environmental conditions are assessed to determine its suitability for a drain field installation. Factors such as soil type, water table level, and slope are considered.
- Design: Based on the site assessment, a suitable drain field design is created. This includes determining the size, layout, and configuration of the perforated pipes or chambers that distribute the effluent.
- Excavation: The designated area is excavated to create trenches or beds where the distribution pipes or chambers will be placed. The size of the drain field is proportional to the volume of wastewater the system will handle.
- Pipe/Chamber Installation: Perforated pipes or chambers are placed in the trenches or beds. These pipes distribute the effluent evenly over the drain field area.
- Gravel and Cover Material: Gravel is often placed around and above the pipes or chambers to promote proper drainage and prevent soil clogging. The trenches are then covered with soil.
- Finalization: Once the drain field components are installed and covered, the area is restored to its natural state, with grass or other vegetation planted over it.
Septic drain field installation is a complex process that requires careful planning, engineering, and adherence to local regulations. Proper installation is essential to ensure the efficient and environmentally sound treatment of wastewater. Regular maintenance and responsible water usage are also crucial to prevent drain field issues and ensure the longevity of the entire septic system.
Protecting our environment is also very important to Universal Septic Services. When determining the location of the drain field installation we make sure that the soils will properly treat the sewage, as well as having an awareness of streams and underground water sources.
No Lot Too Small
Universal Septic Services is skilled in working on small lot sizes. Many properties in our service area are situated around lakes making it difficult to install septic systems on the tight lot designs. With our small excavator we can easily maneuver in and out of tight spaces.
