Home > Three Important Considerations for Drain Field Design

Drain Field DesignWhen it comes to building your septic system, your drain field is an essential component and must be accounted for wisely. So, what do you have to consider when it comes to drain field design before the installation takes place? Here are three important factors that will affect your drain field design and the installation process.

  1. Location – Your septic drain field is perhaps one of the largest parts of your septic system overall. That means it takes up a lot of space and will need a large area to accommodate it fully. Whether you are building a new home or commercial businesses, knowing where your drain field will go as part of your building project will ensure you get the best results.
  2. Size – Along with location, your drain field design must also take into account the size of the drain field itself. This is important for two reasons: firstly, you’ll want to make sure your drain field is able to handle the amount of wastewater that comes through, and secondly, you’ll want a drain field that will provide long-lasting operation for your property.
  3. Soil – The last factor that comes into play with your drain field design is the soil, which must be able to handle the filtering of wastewater back into the ground safely and effectively. Making sure you have the proper soil types for your drain field before installation will ensure that you get the best results from your septic system as a whole.
