Before you buy that land to build on, check to see if you will need a septic tank installation in Loudoun County VA.
If there is a sewer system close enough to your land, you may be able to have your home or business connected to it. However, if you are planning on building your home or business (including a farm) in a more remote location that has no access to a municipal sewer system, you will need to have a septic system installed.
Septic tanks are a part of an overall conventional septic system installation. Before a septic system is installed, you will need to have the land tested to see if and how it “Percs.”
Percolation Testing (AKA Perc or Perc Testing) measures the length of time necessary for liquids to be disseminated throughout the soil. The results of the Perc Testing will determine whether the land can sustain a leach field for a conventional septic system. Realtors will tell you to make the purchase of property you plan to build on contingent on successful Perc Testing.
If the land you want to purchase “percs,” then you will be able to have a conventional onsite septic system. If the land doesn’t perc – then additional testing of the land will need to be done – before an alternative onsite septic system can be designed.
Regardless of which system you end up needing – a conventional or alternative septic system – you will need to have septic tank installation in Loudoun County, VA.
