Septic System Fresno

Septic systems can be tricky and often times extremely messy to the inexperienced. First lets look at what exactly is a septic system and how they work. Simply put, a septic system is a self-contained system for holding and disposing of sewage. Septic systems are typically found in suburban areas where public sewage systems are not.

More often than not what you find is not a septic system but a holding tank. Holding tanks are where bacteria and enzymes decompose the waste material and buried paths in a drainage field using soil to filter what remains.

If you are buying or building a new house you may need a permit. Septic system permits in Fresno are genuinely based on the number of bedrooms in the house. Inspectors also take into consideration your soil percolation. Soil percolation determines how well water will drain through the soil on your land.
