The Ins And Outs of How We Do Business
Frequently asked questions
Why choose KSD?
Septic system technology has evolved over the last 40 years. We no longer build systems which simply dispose of the water deep in the ground, which can harm our waterways or drinking water sources.
How long does it take to complete a design?
On average, a new Septic System design will take 4-5 business days.
Do you provide maintenance on septic systems?
We currently only provide design and consulting expertise for systems in MN.
What areas do you cover?
We are conveniently located in Shoreview, MN. We travel to the following counties for designs:
I have a failed septic system. How can you help us?
When an existing house or business no longer has a compliant septic system, knowing your options are VERY important in determining how to best move forward. We will examine what is necessary to repair, replace or design a new system which will meet today's standards.
Why did my Inspection fail "due to lack of vertical separation"? My septic system is working fine.
I hear this question a lot from homeowners looking to sell their home and an inspection was completed to verify the system was compliant. Unfortunately, the inspection can sometimes reveal that the drainfield may not have been installed at the proper depth in relationship to conditions in the soil. Here is a 7 minute video that does a great job explaining the relationship between the drainfield depth and the proper amount of soil needed to treat our wastewater before entering the groundwater.
