Septic Tank Installation in Salinas
Used mainly in rural areas, septic systems are highly effective wastewater treatment systems. Collecting waste from sinks and toilets, they are piped into the tank where they sit to break down. Liquids are sent out through a drainage system, and solids break down further, eventually being pumped out.
Less expensive than centralized sewer systems, septic tank installation is also fairly simple when executed by professional excavation companies such as Norcal Contractor.
Salinas homeowners ready to install this affordable option can look to Norcal Contractor for a wealth of experience, a focus on client satisfaction, and the most competitive rates out there!
Assessment and Excavation
From the first phone call until post-excavation cleanup, we’re there every step of the way with an attention to detail and extra care taken with every job.
We start every Salinas client off with a free estimate to let them know what their installation will cost. Once we are ready to begin the septic system installation, we’ll test the soil. This is to ensure that draining will be accomplished properly—no one wants a pond of sewage building up in their yard!
When we begin excavation services, we’ll work with each unique property to determine depth and slope. On average, the slope from tank to home is minimal, at 2%. The tank will be covered with a minimum of six inches of soil, and we will finish off the process with drain field trench digging, and dirt hauling.
At Norcal Contractor, we have the equipment to haul dirt and debris away, where other companies may have you calling a subcontractor for that single job.
Septic Tank Replacement
How can you tell when it’s time to replace your septic tank? The situation is obvious in the case of a septic emergency when you find sewage in your home. But other signs it’s time for a septic tank replacement is a soggy drain-field.
In the case of a drain-field malfunction, contact Norcal Contractor immediately so that we can assess the situation.
If your tank needs a full replacement or repairs, we’ll excavate around it to see what needs to be done next.
Cost to Install a Septic Tank
At Norcal Contractor, we always do our best to offer our Salinas clients the most affordable options on the market. However, like with any utility or construction project, septic systems can range in price.
Generally, your own personally waste treatment plant will cost between $1,500 to upwards of $4,000. Factors that contribute to cost include:
- Home size
- Family size
A small family home on an already sloped property can expect to pay much less than a larger family that requires more excavation work.
