From the Texas Administrative Code:
(1) all irrigation piping and valves must meet the separation distances from the On-Site Sewage Facilities system as required for a private water line in §285.91(10) of this title (relating to Minimum Required Separation Distances for On-Site Sewage Facilities);

3) any water from the irrigation system that is applied to the surface of the area utilized by the On-Site Sewage Facility system must be controlled on a separate irrigation zone or zones so as to allow complete control of any irrigation to that area so that there will not be excess water that would prevent the On-Site Sewage Facilities system from operating effectively.

Minimum Required Separation Distances for OSSF.

Interesting topic. When I started 40 yrs ago, everyone wanted the older guys to do their work. It was tough as an upstart. Gradually as I came of age, the Walmart mentality changed all that so that only price mattered as if irrigation was a commodity like a washer, dryer, computer, car etc.

Though stressful in some ways, the economy has rewarded me for my longevity, knowledge and adherence to quality work. I find many prospects today really carefully shopping and doing their diligence in making an informed decision. I used to get laughed out with my high price. Now I seem like a wise investment.

What's that great quote?: "Long after the price is forgotten, the quality is always remembered."

Do I count? seeing as how I have skimmed out a few zones with my skid during a landscape install or change on more than a few occasions. But have always restored or re-installed or had arrangement's made.

I feel that it is the septic guys who just f__k things up and bury it without marking or telling any one. Like today I go to the job where the cesspool caved in when I was pulling pipe, they filled another old pool and in the process broke a head off the end of a lateral line and buried the pipe 3' down in the sand so the water wouldn't even surface. These guys knew the system was brand new and it wasn't even wired and they just don't care.

i feel that all tradesmen look down on any trade other than their own, until a man walks in another's boots he may tend to feel superior to others.

the more trades that you learn, the more respect that you gain for the craftsmen. i happen to have been fortunate enough to have done a lot of different things in my life and have the utmost respect for a craftsman.
pikers, hacks and shackers suck, but hey...............aint no one perfect
