A-1 Septic Pumping can help you find where your septic tank is located. Follow the below-mentioned steps.
Locate the main drain (4” black PVC pipe leaving the foundation) to find out which side of the house the tank is positioned.
Estimating the depth of the main drain from the surface will help you determine the depth of the tank.
Use a piece of rebar or something strong that you can hammer into the ground.
Hammer a piece of rebar into the ground at approximately 6” intervals. When you hit the concrete, move the rebar a couple of inches and hammer again. Make sure you are not hitting some large stone instead of the concrete tank.
Locate the concrete tank and all four corners using the rebar. Determining if the tank is placed horizontally or vertically from your home is important.
Try to locate the tank lid with the help of the drawing below. Your tank should be approximately 4” x 8”.
Uncover the entire lid so that the technician can remove it and clean your septic tank.
