Finding your septic tank

It should be easy to find something like a septic tank, but after a few years it can take some detective work. When soil settles and grass grows the septic tank lid can become hidden, which can pose a challenge when it comes time to service your system.

Tips to find your home’s septic tank lid

Residential septic tanks are usually located 1 to 3 meters away from the house, below the main floor bathroom window. Look for a high spot or depression in your backyard. Or, look in your basement for the pipe that comes out of your house.

Locating your septic tank safely

Still can’t find your septic tank? There’s no need to resort to digging random holes in search of your lid. The team at RVM use metal detectors and other specialized equipment to safely locate your septic tank, without destroying your backyard.
