Various Types of Septic Tanks and Septic Systems

It might seem like one-size-fits-all if you are out shopping for a new septic tank. However, there are several varieties for you to choose from, depending on your waste management needs. Before deciding on a particular septic tank, it is vital to consult a professional plumber to ensure you are making the right choice for your home. The last thing you want is constant septic-related emergencies because of issues that can be avoided before septic tank installation. A septic expert can provide pertinent information about the limitations and benefits of each system, ensuring you make a sound decision for your home.

Some factors to consider when choosing a septic system include space on your property, waste management needs, and where you live. Every system has pros and cons, and we can ensure we install one that suits your environment. Here are some types of septic systems designed for different environments.

Conventional Septic System

A traditional septic system is a decentralized system that runs through a drain field made of stone and gravel to filter wastewater before it is released into the ground. This system is recommended for commercial and residential establishments, but its large footprint can limit placement. Our septic service experts can assess your property size to determine if this is the ideal septic solution for your waste management needs.

Chamber Septic System

We recommend chamber septic systems for areas that are easier to access than gravel or homes with a high water table. A chamber septic system is almost similar to a conventional septic system but doesn't filter wastewater through gravel and stone. Instead, manufacturers have designed filters comprising a series of chambers filled with soil, making it helpful when the amount of water being filtered varies throughout the year. Although building a chamber septic system is easy, it is crucial to ensure you have sufficient space in the ground.

Drip Distribution Septic System

A drip distribution septic system works by releasing timed, pretreated deliveries of wastewater. Since waste is released in small amounts, it is treated thoroughly before it is released into the earth. During septic system installation, our experts bury the distribution tubing six to twelve inches below the surface. While a large mound of dirt is not needed to cover the tubing, a large dosage tank is installed after your septic tank and requires electricity to run.
