We Specialize in Conventional Septic Systems
Also known as lateral lines and leech lines, conventional septic systems are often less expensive and more efficient than an aerobic septic system but only with absorbent soil, which will be determined by an Oklahoma DEQ soil test. If you need help finding a certified soil tester in your area, contact us, we can recommend one for you. A soil test will be required for all lateral line installations and costs around $300.
NOTE: Septic installers are NOT soil testers. 80% of the conventional systems we install have been told by another company that their properties wouldn’t pass a soil test and an aerobic system was their only option.
This type of system should be installed in a large open area with no trees, gentle slopes, good drainage and no vehicle traffic.
In most cases, we can install a lateral line septic system in one day. Depending on the DEQ requirements for your septic system, it could take two days to complete.
While it will be next to impossible to make your yard look like we haven’t been there at all, we spend extra time after the installation dressing up your yard as best as we can. There is no extra charge for final dirt work.

THE DO'S & DON'TS OF SEPTIC SYSTEMS
A properly installed conventional septic system will typically last anywhere from 20-40 years if you properly maintain it.
Septic System Maintenance
Conventional septic systems are low maintenance and that’s why we prefer them. You will need to have your septic tank pumped every 3-5 years, depending on how many people live with you. If you don’t know a septic pumper in your area, contact us and we can refer you to one.
Sometimes an aerobic system is your only option, but if DEQ will allow for a conventional septic system, we highly recommend it.
Septic System Failure
If you are experiencing septic tank drain field problems, septic tank collapse or septic water coming out of the ground, these are all signs of a failing leach field.
