Bolton Septic - Septic System Repair

When we do a perc test will will dig a series of small holes in your yard to test the soil quality. We do our best to minimize disruption to your lawn.

Will perc testing dig up my entire yard?

On the day of the perc test, we will bring a small machine to your property to meet you and the inspector. Once everyone is present, we will dig several holes to determine soil conditions at differing depths. We are looking for sand, clay and variations thereof to “paint a picture” of the soil drainage at your site. The inspector will use this information to write up a soil evaluation which will eventually be used to issue a permit at the property. The soil evaluation and potential permit is generally good for a certain length of time. Each county has slightly different processes and requirements, which we would be happy to help you navigate should you choose Bolton Septic LLC to do your perc test.

Once the perc is complete, we will do our best to put dirt back and rake out your yard to the best of our ability. We try to go above and beyond to minimize the disruption a perc test may cause at your home. Call us today and we can discuss your specific situation and your potential need for a perc test.
