Septic Tank Installation & Replacement Process

This lengthy and complicated process should be handled by skilled experts that have the proper equipment to handle both excavation and installation.

Step 1

Percolation Testing

During this test, professionals test water’s ability to drain through
the soil. It’s also known as zone saturation. These regulations and
standards are strictly enforced by the county health department, so
the soil must meet certain criteria to pass the test. Our septic
 will advise you on how often you need this testing
performed to upkeep your system in Lakeland.

What happens if the soil fails the percolation test? We will consult
with you and may recommend speaking with the county health
department to figure out a solution.

Step 2

Acquiring A Permit

The next step in the septic tank installation process is obtaining the necessary permits to complete the work. Our Lakeland septic company will assist you in this process to make it as painless as possible!

Step 3

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the costs associated with septic installation?

How do I know if my septic tank or system needs to be replaced?

Only a thorough inspection can really tell the condition of your system, but if it has been several decades, you may want to consider calling us to come check it out.

Other signs that your septic tank or system may need to be replaced are:

  • Frequently backed up pipes
  • Tank overflowing often
  • Solids failing to breakdown even with treatment
  • Puddling/pooling
  • Well water contamination
