Got the bill today for the septic field I needed re-done. 240 ft of 5ft deep ditch. was 4080.00. With permits and soil analisi another 400.00. Lost rent was 2 months. Re-rented for 950.00 started Feb 14, 2021.

With all the rain it was a very slow process to get the pipe in the ground. Only took one day. We used a 20 inch ring and cover to place over one of the outlet tank covers and used a septic tank filter iunder the ring.

Wow, that's terrific!

Glad you got a new tenant so quickly. You can use this bill to show them what they will have to pay if they misuse it! It's absolutely guaranteed that any junk found in there will be from them. : o

I was told around $15K +, if I had to replace mine on my recent rehab.

Thankfully, mine was able to be cleaned & repaired instead. That cost close to what you paid for an entire replacement - just so you don't feel TOO bad. --68.229.xxx.xxx

Seems reasonable. I'm sure you have some good clauses in the lease about what NOT to put down the drains...but hard to enforce. --99.92.xxx.xxx

That seems unreal man. Unless you were able reuse the actual tank or tanks.

But by location I dont the rules and regs for you

Its roughlly 10 to 15 grand for a conventional septic system. if it passes muster for drainage.

And if not perk ? or someting like that you have get a mound system. 20 grand

I have had a few chances to by rural homes but I could not justify the exspense --207.200.xxx.xx

As to the lease u can put that right in the filter. A normal washing machine uses about 30 to 50 gallons of water .And you are at least in my area only supposed to a load of laundry in the morning and one at nite .

Even with the baffles the drain field can not take it and the brown trout and special forces helmets go over the top --207.200.xxx.xx

By on WI we call those dry wells. My 2 neighbors have long pvc 3" pipe coming out the back of their houses to the woods. Grey water. Where I grew up in LI NY we used dry wells all the time. 55 gallon drum buried with large holes cut on the sides and bottom. Then crush and run stone packed around the out side and top /bottom. Back fill. Worked for as long as 8 of us lived in that house.

Part of the license price was an outside environmental study (AKA perk test) Property passed-- in whole yard-- even out front. I did the grunt work ordering and filling out license info-- didn't use contractor for that. My guy was one of the 100 or so approved installers. 2 days prior to dig he called and set up appt with insp. For 2pm the day he was to dig. Everything was timing. He started at 8am and 2 the inspector was done and 4 my guy was gone. I sent 2 guys over to seed and wheat straw the yard.

I used old 1000 gal tank but did get new lid with inspection plug so I won't have to dig up whole lid to pump out next time. (110.00) for new section of tank cover. --99.103.xxx.xxx
