A percolation test is a test to determine the water absorption rate of soil. In preparation for the building of a septic drain field or (leach field).

The results of a percolation test are required to properly design a septic system. In its broadest terms, percolation testing is simply observing how quickly a known volume of water dissipates into the subsoil of a drilled hole of known surface area.

In general, sandy soil will absorb more water than soil with a high concentration of clay or where the water table is close to the surface.
