Septic Tank Dual Leah bed Inspection

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me how long this inspection should take? Scenario is a Vacant house in NW Ohio. 3BR with a 1500g tank, dual leach bed with a switch box for annual bead change. System then drains to a creek.

Leach beds are designed to let the water leach back into the ground, not drain into a creek.

Sounds like you've got all you need for recommending a fix.

Sand filter systems need to drain. Mine drains to the storm sewer via a lift pump. The guy who put it in says one could drink the water after the sand filter. While I don't think I'll ever be thirsty enough to try it, it should be plenty clean enough to empty into a creek.

I have no idea why there would be two drain fields/filters.
