Why Find Your Septic Tank & Drainfield?

If you live in a rural area, somewhere off the grid, or otherwise are not connected to the local centralized sewer system, then you likely rely on an on-site septic system for treating waste and wastewater. As you might suspect, the maintenance of the septic system is wholly the property owner’s responsibility. Any contamination or damage caused by your septic system will be your liability. So, if you want to get the most out of your septic system without becoming liable for damages, then you must take great care of the system. How can you take care of the septic system if you do not even know where it is located though? Septic Connection is here to help with drainfield locating and septic tank locating in Greenville.

Locating the Septic Tank & Drainfield Yourself

We have a profound respect for property owners who like to take things into their own hands, and we are happy to help. Though we offer septic tank locating service in Greenville, we also have some tips on how to locate your septic tank and drainfield yourself:

  • Scan for Markers: Your septic tank should be marked by a cement marker the size of a manhole cover. Look ten or twenty feet away and scan for this marker, then follow the downward-most path and check for an empty, downward-sloping field. That field may be your drainfield.
  • Ask the Previous Owner: Chances are the previous property owner has performed maintenance and repairs. If you have their contact info, then call and ask for help.
  • Use the As-Built Diagram: The contractor who installed your system should have filed an as-built diagram at the local health authority. Either call the contractor or contact the health authority to request a copy.
