Do you have an existing septic system?

During sale or title transfer, the septic system may need to be upgraded to make the system compliant per Minnesota code. Check with your local government unit for their property disclosure requirements. To find out whether or not your system is compliant, call Kothrade for a tank certification.

System may be failing

There are many reasons why a septic system may start to fail. Routine pumping (every 2 -3 years) and proper care will help with the longevity of your system. While there are several signs of a failing system, the most prominent sign is effluent surfacing in the drainfield area. Contact Kothrade with questions or concerns.

Adding a room to a home?

Septic systems are designed to handle an estimated usage based on the number of bedrooms and size of a home. Adding to your home or building a garage, etc. to tie into the existing septic system may require an update to the system to meet Minnesota code. Contact Kothrade with questions or concerns.

New construction?

If there isn’t a city sewer and water main available, chances are a septic system will be needed. Check with your local government unit’s building department for information. Contact Kothrade with questions or concerns.

I need a new system, where do I start?

To start the process of installing a new septic system, you need to obtain a design/site plan. The site plan is used by system installers to create a proposal on the work to be performed, based on specifications per Minnesota code.
