Why do houses have mounds in the yard?
Because of the seasonal high water table which is determinded by water table strippings within the soils. These high water tables require a mound system to be installed, creating the "mound" system. The higher the water table, the further out of the ground the system must be. These systems include the use of pump chambers, pumps, and alarms to control the flow of the septic water into the drainfield.
How long do I have before I need to clean my tank?
As per the local health department and I, we ask that you try to pump them every 3 to 5 years depending on how many people live in the house. This maintains a clean tank, and the risk of your drainfield failing lower.
What sets you as a young contractor apart from other contractors?
