While many factors can impact the overall duration of a new septic system install, historically most residential projects will last between 2-5 days. We realize life doesn’t stop for those who are needing to replace an older failing system for their home. We always plan our installs to reduce the amount of time you are asked to not use water. In most cases, we are able to limit your downtime to 1-4 hours. Regardless of the steps it will take to fully install your new septic system, you can rely on our professional team members to handle the site prep, installation, and final inspection with the highest attention to detail.
Over the years we have installed systems for numerous customers with septic designs from many different engineers in the Fraser Valley. We have great working relationships with many of these engineers. If you already have a design completed, feel free to ask your engineer about their experience with Canadian Septic Inc. before asking us to quote out your installation.
Septic Tank Installation
Commission the Onsite Septic System
At Canadian Septic Inc., we know that no two projects are the same. That is why we tailor our septic field installation process to meet the specific requirements of each project. A typical field installation follows the following steps:
The septic tank installation process is fairly similar from project to project. While bedding and backfill materials may vary dependant on tank composition (concrete, fibreglass, or plastic) and the anti-flotation requirements for tanks may differ based on water table levels on the site, we do follow a high-level step-by-step process to ensure that all tanks are installed properly the first time around.
One of the most important, and often overlooked, steps to every septic installation is the documentation and commissioning of the new septic system. We take great pride in our ability to complete the documenting process. Very rarely does the installed septic system match up exactly with the submitted design. Often the changes are minute but we take great satisfaction in being the only installer to have a .pdf commissioning document with photos to ensure there are no questions about what’s in the ground on your property. Below is an example of some typical items found on our commissioning document:
Every Canadian Septic Inc. system is installed with the maintenance provider in mind. All components are installed to allow for easy access and replacement. We provide all customers with a Canadians Septic Inc. designed and installed system, a detailed operations manual, as well as an easy-to-follow maintenance schedule to ensure that your septic system remains in optimal working condition.
