About 3 years ago we had some septic tank problems do to our ground being compacted to hard. We had a perculation test done and it took 90 minutes for 1 inch of water to soak in. The contractor who built the house had an additional leach line installed at the bottom of a hill in the back yard, hoping that this would stop the problem Im sure. Well now we are having a seepage from the very end of the leach line that was installed about 18 months ago. What could be causing this? Is there a possible solution?
A failed septic system can caused by poor design, poor materials and poor installation, thereby leaving you poor. You should hire a reputable septic designer to help you; local inspectors may be able to guide you.
I am currently going to the Wyoming Center for Problem Based Education. This year one of our problems is designing a house with actual clients. We are studying and trying to find everything out about planning and building a house. Right now I am stuck on perculation tests. I have tried to find information on the internet but keep turning up blanks. If you could help me by telling me how you run a perculation test and how it effects the house I would really appreciate it.Thank You
