looking for a septic consultant who provides quality service, complete,
cutting edge solutions and engineering which considers the “lifetime”
cost for your investment, you’ve found the place with the
best value! If you want a cut-rate shop who will give a low-ball
quote over the phone just to get you “hooked”, you’ll
need to go elsewhere.
Unlike other septic consultants, EGSD does not have a strictly set
price for each service. This philosophy can be beneficial to both
parties involved. If you have a simple, “cookie cutter”
project, we will likely offer lower than average prices. If however
you have a difficult project with poor site conditions, complex
constraints, etc., we may charge a little more than average, but
you’ll know your project is getting the attention it deserves
and the best chances of getting an approval.
After meeting you at your site and going through our site feasibility
process, we will give you a written proposal outlining the fees
and timelines anticipated to complete your project. Contact
us today for an on site consultation!
In order to obtain a perc, three individual services are required.
First, you hire a consultant like EGSD to perform an initial site
feasibility study. We then coordinate with an excavator to have
the required “test” (or “perc”) holes dug
on your property and submit the appropriate application(s), plot
plan, etc to the County Health Department. If you would like to
learn more about the process involved with this, please see our
The fees for this service are typically:
County Health Department - $334-$601* per lot
EGSD Consulting Fee - $500* per lot
Excavator to Dig Holes - $250* per lot
*NOTE: These prices are approximate and based on a single property
with a three bedroom house. Multiple adjacent lot discounts are
typically given (except from the County) for all projects with more
than one adjacent lot. Prices may be slightly higher for larger
or more difficult projects. Actual prices will vary.
Septic Design and Permitting Prices:
After you have a “perc”, you’ll need a detailed
septic design for your project. Prior to installation of the system,
you’ll also need a County permit and design review. If you
would like to learn more about the process involved, please see
our permitting page.
Fees for this step in the process are typically:
County Health Department (Permit and Design Review) - $334
- $434** per system
EGSD Septic System Design
• $750** - Standard Gravity
• $1250** - Most Alternative Systems
**NOTE: These prices are approximate and based on a single property
with a three bedroom house. County fees vary wildly depending on
the type of project (repair permits are much cheaper than new development
projects). Lower prices should be expected for smaller, simple projects.
Prices may be higher for larger or more difficult projects. Actual
prices will vary.
OK, so you’re working on a budget for your project and need
to know how much the septic system installation is going to cost?
Unfortunately, that question is similar to asking “how much
does a new car cost”? Well, it obviously depends on the type
of car. Do you want a Geo to make your daily commute to work or
do you require a highly engineered, sophisticated sports car like
Septic systems also have a wide variation in their complexity and
price. A small residential septic system can set you back anywhere
from $5,000 to over $20,000 depending on the type and size required.
Until you have a “perc” approval for your property,
it will be difficult to know what type of system is required. The
type and size of system are what drive the price. Below are approximate
prices for common types of septic systems (assuming a three bedroom
Standard Gravity - $4,500***
Pressure Distribution - $7,500***
Sand Filter - $13,000***
AdvanTex Filter - $15,500***
***NOTE: These prices do not include system design, permitting,
electrical and other ancillary items which may be required. All
prices are approximates based on 2007 market conditions. Actual
prices will vary. EGSD does NOT install septic systems. All actual
pricing will need to come from a licensed septic installer.
