When you purchase property, one of the first things you need to find out is whether the home will be on a private or public sewer. Many homeowners panic when they find out that the perfect piece of land that they have their eyes set on will require installing a private sewer system.

However, septic systems are a lot more common than many people think. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that more than one in five American homes rely on private wastewater treatment. To install these systems, you will need to work with septic tank installers.

What To Expect From Us

When you hire J&J Enterprises as your septic system installers, we start with surveying the property. If you have technical or architectural drawings for your home, we are happy to take a look at those as well. Any testing previously done regarding soil type is also helpful during this process. We will use all of the available information to map out the best location to build your private septic system.
This information is also used to figure out what your potential options are when it comes to the type of system. We are happy to assist you with choosing the right material and size for your septic tank. Once the location and system type are established, an engineer then drafts the final plans for installation.
We follow the final installation plans in exact to ensure you get a safe and functional system. After installation, we make recommendations for maintenance and inform you of when your follow-up inspection and eventual pump day will be.

How Your System Works

No two systems are exactly alike, especially when you add the plumbing from a main building to the mix. However, most septic systems follow the same basic premise. All the wastewater in your home gets channeled to one main pipe that transports it all to the waste management system buried underground. The tank itself is watertight and can be constructed from plastic, concrete or steel.

When the waste collects inside the tank, the solids sink to the bottom. Bacteria then breaks them down to form sludge. Lighter semi-solids float to the surface to form scum. In the middle is effluent, which is the liquid portion of the waste. Most systems leach the effluent out into a drain field. The soil in the field then treats the liquid, eliminating the risk of contamination.
