Before the installation

You need to have all the information about your soil composition and the distances to respect and all the local requirements. Concerning the septic tank, you should check if it’s damaged and notify it to the installers if you think the tank can’t be installed (once installed the claims for damage won’t be accepted by the manufacturer).

All installations need to “fit for purpose” to conform to the site conditions. This is the obligation of the installer to follow the guidelines.  The step below may vary according to the specificities of the site and if it’s dry or wet.
