How To Determine Where To Locate Your Septic System
When locating your septic system, it’s usually best to call a professional to help you identify its location on your property. If you are trying to do it yourself, you need to follow the main sewer line to see exactly where the septic tank is located. This is usually the first part of the system you will find. It is typically located around 10 to 20 feet of a building’s infrastructure.
If you need assistance in finding the tank, call our experts at Capital City Septic Services to let our licensed and insured contractors help.
Tips for Finding Remaining Parts of Your Septic System
While you might be able to locate the septic tank on your own, you should hire a professional to find the rest of your septic system. The remaining components can include:
- Pump tank
- Distribution box
- Dry well
- Drain field
- Mound system
To help you locate the system, call our experts at Capital City Septic Services to have a contractor find the other components.

What To Do Once You Locate Your Septic System
Whether you are able to locate your septic system yourself or you hire a contractor to help, it’s essential to make sure you can relocate your system when needed. You should take steps to:
- Make a map of your yard and mark where the system is.
- Make a physical marker in your yard of where the system is located. This can be a flag or post, or something less obvious like placing a garden feature, statue, birdbath, rock, or other items near it so you can easily identify it.
