Soil Percolation Testing

Soil testing is an integral part of septic system design and septic system installation. Trust C. M. Kristman Excavating and Septic Services for performing the necessary soil testing required by your township, county, or municipality.

C. M. Kristman Excavating and Septic Services will assist you with you with your residential or commercial soil testing needs. After soil testing permit fees have been paid, we will schedule the digging of test pits with the sewage enforcement officer or other official from your local governing body. We dig two 8-feet deep test pits 50 feet apart. After the sewage enforcement officer inspects the test pits, C. M. Kristman Excavating and Septic Services expert consultants will work with the officer to determine the depth of the percolation tests.

Our site testing fee of $1,400 includes the following:

  1. Excavation and back-fill of test pits
  2. Initial percolation test
  3. Septic system design
