5 Things You Should Know About Septic Installation [infographic]

1. Not all septic installation projects are the same—When designing a septic system, local regulations, property size, occupancy expectations, soil types, and elevation of the property all impact the design and outcome. These factors also affect the size of the septic tank and its depth, the size of the drain field and its shape, and other details.
