Septic Tank Drawings
Most counties keep records of septic drawings that include a lot of helpful information. In Fayette County it takes a simple phone call to get your septic drawing emailed over and in Coweta County all you have to do is go to a website to find your septic drawing. It is very important to be informed about the location and details of your septic system. These septic drawings provide a lot of that information for you. In the example below, you will probably first notice the grid drawing at the bottom of the page. Although it is not to scale and looks very rudimentary, it does give a general idea of where the septic tank is located which is a good place to start. You will also notice in the middle column it has the tanks capacity of 1000 gallons. These reports will also have the date the septic system was installed, which can help provide a lot of information for the people who are pumping you septic tank. Designs of commonly used septic tanks changed over the years. The lids of the septic tanks are very different depending on when they were installed. These reports also show the type of material the septic tank is made out of. Other useful information on these reports is whether there is a pump tank or not. When you call Firehouse Septic to come pump your septic tank or work on your septic system, one of the first things we do is obtain the septic report for your home. You can always request a copy from us to keep for your records, which we highly recommend. The more informed you are about your septic system, the better you can take care of it and the less money you will have to spend in repairs.
