Septic System Perk

Perk tests is a short form of the term "percolation test," which is a test to determine the suitability of a property location for a septic drainage system.

Ultimately they are done to see if the soil that surrounds the future drainfield will be able to absorb the amount of water that will be placed on it by the home.

Septic system designers use the results of percolation tests to properly construct septic systems.

We design systems to meet a wide variety of conditions, just give us a call!
