Home > 3 Factors that Can Affect Your Commercial Septic System Design

you will need to alter your commercial septic system design

Even though most septic systems are going to have many of the same components, there are considerations that you might need to make when it comes to the design of your septic system. Just like building plans need to take the property into consideration before building, so too will your commercial septic system design. Here at Southern Water and Soil, we want to help you get the right commercial septic system design for your property to ensure proper functioning. Here are a few things that have the potential to alter a design.

  1. The grade of the property. One of the problems that we run into frequently when it comes to commercial septic system design is the grade of the property. A septic system often relies on gravity to drain the effluent water from the tank into the drain field, but sometimes the drain field needs to be positioned above the tank. This means an alteration to your commercial septic system design.
  2. The water table. The location and depth of the water table is not always the same in properties, even when they are in the same region. This can force us to look for different design opportunities for your commercial septic system.
  3. The content of the soil. When you have soil content that is going to be resistant to percolation of the effluent water, you will need to alter your commercial septic system design. This accommodation is a necessary one, especially if you would like to prevent flooding around the drain field.

Here at Southern Water and Soil, we have over 30 years of experience working with commercial septic systems of all types. Let us make sure your design is the one that will perfectly suit your needs and your property.
