Electronically Locating Residential Septic Tanks

Can’t find your home septic tank buried under all that dirt? LePew Industrial Inc. can provide residential septic tank locating services.

Our experts have a variety of methods in order to locate your buried septic tank manhole cover.

How Do I Find My Septic Tank Lid?

Sometimes, we may be able to see a slight low or high spot in your yard which indicates where the cover had been dug up before. When your spot is found, we will probe the ground with a steel probe. Steel tanks can easily be found by using a metal detector. Make sure you check with past homeowners, local pumpers, or your local land records for information on the possible location of your septic tank. It may be surprising to see that someone already knows where it is located. Remember that it is against the law to dig or probe on your own property without getting the utilities marked first. After they are marked, don’t probe or dig up a high pressure gas line or cut any fiber-optic cables. Call LePew to help locate your residential septic tank. Our experts will do the work for you.

At times, our professional staff will go into the basement to see where the sewer pipe exists through your walls. We will then be able to scan the yard about 10 – 20 feet directly out from where the sewer pipe sits. This helps us look for the buried cover. LePew has the latest technology to find your home septic tank. By using our electronic locating devices, it can detect cast-iron and PVC pipes. This tiny device is flushed down your toilet which eventually drains out into your septic tank, emitting a signal to tell our experts where to dig. Our experienced professionals will be more than happy to locate your hiding residential septic tank. Contact us today!
