Types of Septic Systems

 

IMG_1530Basically there are two types of septic systems we install. Which are an in ground and mounded systems. Permits for septic systems are sized in accordance to the amount of bedrooms in the home, square footage or estimated flows. The permits contain only the minimum requirements. The septic system can be upgraded if any additions are to be made at a later time.

Partridge Well Drilling installs mainly two types of drain fields. One type is an in ground system. This works on gravity flow to the drain field and is used where the ground is high and dry and no water table problems exist.

The other type of drain field installed is a mounded system. This system is used when the ground is wet and does not absorb water well. A sump pump is installed in the tank to pump the waste liquid from the tank to the drain field. These systems are normally installed with granite rock.

The Septic Department also performs repairs on systems that are failing. Repairs include drain fields, sump pumps, and septic tank replacements.
