The site parameters pretty much dictate what the appropriate type of septic system would be required. But, just like buying a new car, you could have “options” added to the design which would help increase the longevity of the drainfield, make maintenance much easier, and create a “worry free” septic system for as long as you own the home. It’s the little extra now which could make a big difference later!
The Basic plan set meets the minimum state and local requirements and will get you a construction permit from the local Health Department. It’s what everyone in my industry does. Much like buying the base model of a new car, it will get you down the road. The Basic plan includes a soil/site evaluation, a digital and paper copy of the plan set (I can fill out and submit the Health Departments applicant and your plan set for the installation permit. The local Health Department will call you for their permit fees), Operation and Maintenance Manual, and any consultation with you or your installer to get a good installation. An example, and our fees for a Basic plan set, can be found on our main page.
The following plans are in addition to the Basic plan set. This additional cost would be added to your design invoice so there’s nothing to pay in the future. If you are an installer or home builder/developer and are not the final home owner, I will make contact with the new home owner to set up the time/date for the Gold and Platinum site inspections.
