Septic System Videos Describe How to Find the Septic Tank, Drainfield, and Septic Pumping Station
Septic 101 part 1: Video on How to find the septic system. (How to Find the Septic Tank) Daniel thinks out loud while walking an 18 year old homesite in northern Minnesota while
searching for the septic system and its components. Simple visual observations tell us where the septic tank and fields might be, where they are unlikely to be, and where they certainly would not be expected to be found. We find the septic tank, its cleanout port, and we see an
electrical box which means that a septic pump installed. We begin discussing what kind of septic system is likely to be installed at a lakefront homesite.
Septic 101 part 3: Video on Deciding the Septic Drainfield Location. (Deciding the Probable Drainfield Location by Visual Inspection) Based simply on visual site observations and the age of the home, we conclude the almost-certain location of the septic drainfield for this lakefront property. (The property owner later confirmed that we were correct.)
