When dealing with major home upgrades or projects, whatever the job, proper installation is incredibly important. Having a accurately installed septic system is possibly the most important of all of the plumbing related projects in your home. If your septic system malfunctions, you are going to be extremely displeased and possibly even displaced. Living in a home where there is a septic backflow is not only unpleasant, but unsanitary. Imagine, you hire a cheap contractor who is brand new to the profession, and 3 months later you end up with raw sewage in your home. Not a pretty picture is it?

Grading And Drainage Fields
One of the most important factors with the installation of a septic system is how to properly grade and layout the drainage network. The way that a septic system works is that there is solid and liquid waste that need to be managed, and they are both handled in different ways. The liquid waste is arguably the most difficult to manage, because there is more volume. The waste water needs to go somewhere, and the answer to the question of “where?”, is into what is called a drainage field. Without the proper grading and the proper drainage field configuration, your waste water might pool in your yard, or worse yet, go back into your home.

How To Install A Septic System
The other, less popular name for septic systems is a private on-site water treatment system. Known as POWTS for short, they are used more often than not in more remote or rural areas, where larger water treatment facilities aren’t present. To begin with a septic system installation, you’ll need to do a survey, which includes the amount of total space available for the system and drainage field, the topography and the estimated water usage of the structure that is using the system. Hereford Septic Service is always one step ahead of any issues, and a septic system survey is the best way to ensure that. Once you’ve completed your survey, you’ll need permits to do the installation. There are a couple of methods for installation, one of which being a gravity fed system. This is the most popular, because the installation cost is less and there aren’t as many points of failure. There is more to the installation, of course, but Hereford Septic Service is here to help you through the process. Give us a call today and let us show you what we can do!
