Hey All!!
We need to redo our septic field and would like to do it ourselves.
Any suggestions on how to run the out going pipe into the field?
Thanks!

Hi COG,

Read this recent Follow-up I wrote on the Old BBS. http://www.bobvila.com/wwwboard/messages/42774.html

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: Personally, this is not a DIY job unless you know what you're doing. Also, there are Code issues that need to be known. There's nothing like having a surprise visit from an Inspector that's wondering what you're up to, and THEN finding out your field is Non-Compliant. Belive me - I've seen it! In fact, I know of a lady that bought a lot and it was non-conforming when it came to drilling a Water Well and a Drain Field. Now she's trying to sell the lot. (Good luck!)

When I had septic problems a couple of years ago, my county health dept. rep. was extremely helpful. Hopefully, yours would be too. I suggest you check with them on local rules and also for advice.
