Important Septic System Locations

Why is it even important to know so much about a tank buried in the ground? Your septic system may be buried, but events taking place above ground can still affect your septic system significantly. Some important reasons you need to know where your septic system is located are:

  • Future Repairs & Maintenance — If your system is struggling, a professional team can find your septic system once they arrive. However, this will delay any repairs or maintenance that needs to occur quickly. It’s better to have the information about your tank and sewer cleanouts ready to go!
  • Property Digging — If you ever plan to dig on your property to build or landscape, it’s essential that you know exactly where your sewer lines, septic tank and leach field are located so as to not damage the system. 
  • Leach Field Maintenance — A septic tank releases safe wastewater from perforated pipes extending from the tank itself. The soil on top of these pipes is called the leech field. While walking and running on this land is completely safe, parking vehicles here, planting deep-rooted plants and heavy rainfall erosion can be dangerous to the delicate pipes underground.

These are some of the reasons why locating your septic system is important. You need to know where your leach field is to maintain that area and keep an eye out for signs of excess wastewater. You need to make sure you never dig up your sewer lines. You should know where these components are located for safety and ease of service!

How Do I Find My Septic Tank?

There are several things you can do as a homeowner to find out where your sewer system is located. The more complicated this process gets, the more likely you are to need a professional septic locator to help you out! Try some of these things first:

  • Follow Your Sewer Lines (if you know where they exit your home)
  • Check County Records
  • Look For/ Dig Up The Metal Lids
  • Use A Metal Probe

It may seem obvious, but simply walking around your property may reveal sewer cleanouts (white PVC pipes above the ground) or metal septic lids you never noticed before. Give it a try, and see what you find!
