Percolation test

Hey guys

Just wondering how long does a percolation test take.

I'm arranging a guy with a machine so just want to have a time frame for him

Thanks

Depends on the soil. You have to monitor water draining into the ground and record depths at specific time intervals.

It could be 1 hour or the day.

The test isn't the issue.

You may need to leave the holes open for a council official to inspect.

The test itself can be done over two days if deemed necessary.

So it's not an in an out job
