Three Types of Septic Systems:
Oklahoma DEQ requires homeowners to perform a soil test before the installation of your septic system in order to determine which type of system would be most efficient and cost effective on your property. If you need help finding a certified soil tester in your area, call Sprague’s Backhoe, we can recommend one for you.
While it’s impossible to make it 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.
Sprague’s Backhoe will have lines located through OKIE 811 before the installation. The homeowner is responsible for marking private lines, such as water and gas.
Also known as lateral lines and leech lines, a conventional septic system is often less expensive and more efficient than an aerobic system but only with absorbent soil, which will be determined by the soil test.
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 conventional system in one day. Depending on the DEQ requirements of your system, it could take two days to complete.

Also known as a Spray Irrigation System, an aerobic system is suitable for use in almost any soil condition and does not require a large area.
Oklahoma DEQ requires septic installers to warranty and maintain new aerobic systems for two years and we meet these requirements on every installation.
A typical aerobic installation is done in one day.

Lagoons are an effective waste treatment system in central and western Oklahoma and are fairly easy to maintain. Per DEQ, lagoons can only be constructed on a piece of land that is at least 2.5 acres. Lagoons must be located in a sunny area where trees and other structures will not restrict sunlight exposure or air flow.
