If you live in an area without sewer service, you will need to have a septic system installed. Not every home can have a conventional system installed. If you have poor soil quality or a high water table, you may need an alternative system. Here are some of the alternatives you may need for your home's septic system:
1. An Aerobatic Septic System For Alternative Waste Treatment
An aerobatic system is one of the most common types of alternative waste treatment solutions. This is like a small water treatment plant that treats waste in a series of tanks to ensure that the water draining out of the system has minimal impact on the environment. These can be costly systems and will require more maintenance than more conventional septic systems. There are also systems that can be completely self-contained, which helps to conserve water usage, as this can allow you to reuse the treat water for things like watering the garden or even to flush the toilets.
2. Mound Septic Systems To Deal With High Water Table Problems
Mound septic systems are another type of septic system, which will work more like a conventional system. These systems are used to raise the drain field to give more room for the water to drain through the soil before it reaches the ground water. These systems can also include a layer of filtration medium to improve the filtering process. For residential installations, the mound part of the system can be disguised with landscaping features and grading to make it less noticeable.
3. Chambered Septic Solutions For Poor Soil Problems And Better Filtration
There are also chambered systems that can be used as an alternative solution. These can include chambers that separate the different waste, as well as grey water. They can also have a chambered design for the drainage system, which can be combined with organic filtration medium like peat moss. This can improve the filtration for problems with soil and high water tables. The chambered designs will also have fewer problems with clogged or collapsed drain field lines.
These are some of the alternatives that you may need for your homes septic system. If you are ready to have a new septic system installed for your home, contact a septic treatment contractor, like those at Tyler Contracting Co, and talk with them about some of these options to see if they will be the right fit.
