Excavation & Perc Test

Septic System Percolation Test

Before a drain field or septic field can be installed a perc test must be performed. A perc test is an excavation of the soils in the desired area of installation. By looking at the types of soils found onsite a plan can be made of how to best install the drain field. If you are interested in determining what type of drain field can be installed contact Al Pearson & Son Septic and we can set up a perc test at your home or business.
