Elevated Septic Field

Is the soil around your residential or commercial property too shallow for a typical septic field? At Howell Sanitary, we understand the “out of sight, out of mind” concept is ideal for many clients. However, certain environmental situations may require your septic system to be above ground. That’s why our professionals leverage their skill, state-of-the-art equipment, and unmatched expertise to install and maintain elevated septic fields.

What are Elevated Septic Fields?

When elevation is different between your septic tank and field, it is essential to have a pump tank installed to pump up wastewater into an above ground system. Elevated septic fields, or mound septic systems, are systems that are at or above grade to help treat septic tank effluent. These systems are the perfect option for overcoming many environmental conditions, including:

  • Soil permeability that is too slow or too fast
  • Shallow soil that gives way to bedrock
  • Water tables that are especially high
  • And more

Given they have less cover that allows for more oxygen, elevated septic fields typically last longer than other types of systems. Furthermore, they require a small amount of space for proper installation, making this type of field an ideal option for properties with minimal space.

If you’re looking to install an elevated septic field, Howell Sanitary is here to help. Our highly-skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect your property to determine if this type of system is the right fit for you. Contact us today for more information!
