Septic Installation

Residents and business owners of Columbia and surrounding areas of South Carolina can rely on the experts at Sharpe’s Septic Tank and Well Drilling Service for residential and commercial septic installation services.


A septic system is required for those living and working in rural areas that have no access to a public sewer treatment facility. Septic systems are the most eco-friendly, efficient, and affordable way to treat wastewater. A septic system that is designed properly and well maintained can last for many years. Contact us today! Our professional staff can provide you with more details about the process for obtaining a septic system for your property.


The property owner will apply for a SC DHEC Permit to Construct Onsite Wastewater System, aka the Septic Tank Permit. We install the septic system according to the permit. The Permit to Construct gives us the details of the system, the location, depth of the system, size of tank, drainline footage, type of drainline product approved, etc. Once we have installed the septic system a SC DHEC inspector will come inspect the system making sure all is in accordance with their rules and regulations. Upon approval, the inspector will give us the go ahead to backfill and cover the system. The inspector will go back to his office and draw up the Final Approval based on the notes he has taken on site. Within a couple of days he will release the Final Approval for the installed septic system. A copy of the Final Approval will be needed in order to have electricity turned on for the new home or business.

When you schedule a septic system installation with our staff; our licensed, bonded, and insured technicians will take all of the necessary steps to make sure your new system is properly installed and in working order. We are available throughout the entire process from the permitting process with SC DHEC through installation and maintenance. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

I have used Sharpe's two times in the last 10 years for septic service. Both times they were on time, did not leave any mess at all, and were very friendly. I thought the price was also reasonable. I would definitely use them again.
