Fireplace over septic field


want to build a small fire place in my yard. Problem is I'm not sure that my drain field will be bothered by it. Does anyone know if it matters if I put a fire place on the drain field trenches or even if I decided the hell with the great grass and put it right at the leech field.?

Re: Fireplace over septic field


So far we have no drawings or pictures of exactly how big this fireplace is.
No location in your profile so we have no idea how deep the footings going to have to be to build it on.
No idea how deep the line is your planing on building over.

Re: Fireplace over septic field


Just a small fire place, with cement blocks, nothing fancy, no digging . . I believe the lines are 3 ft deep and 18 inches below ground.

Not sure how to interpret "3 ft deep and 18" below ground" but it sounds like your proposal is pretty simple and shouldn't be a problem. I would caution if you a planning on building a fire on cement block (as opposed to using blocks as a perimeter). The fire will probably cause them to break.
