How do you locate the septic tank?
In certain cases you may go to your city or county to request site plans of the home that may outline the location of septic tank. If there are no plans available you might ask a neighbor or previous owner. If you are not able to find the septic tank, do not worry we have the proper equipment needed to locate the septic tank. Using a camera we are able to see in your pipes for the location of your septic tank. Using a locator we have that is very alike to a metal detector we will be able to locate the camera and Find the depth.
The lids must be dug out when the septic tank is located. Septic tanks are usually 2-5 ft underground and they have two lids on an average of 2” in diameter. If you happen to know the exact location of the tank we will dig and reveal the lid for free if it is less than 6”.
