Conventional septic systems have traditionally been the most commonly used technology for treating wastewater. These systems use gravity to treat and distribute wastewater in the soil. They have the lowest cost and require the least amount of maintenance, which is generally limited to periodic pumping of the septic tank.
Aerobic Septic Systems
An aerobic septic system is more complex than a conventional system. It includes a trash tank, treatment tank, and pump tank to operate. Similar to conventional systems, waste enters the trash tank and settles into multiple layers. Wastewater is then pushed to the treatment tank, which has an aerator that circulates air bubbles through it.
Air is necessary to keep the aerobic bacteria in the system alive; these bacteria help break down waste faster and more effectively than anaerobic bacteria do. Finally, the water is pumped into the pump tank for a final round of treatment using a disinfectant.
How often should I clean out my system?
It’s recommended to service septic tanks every 3-5 years. Proper operation and maintenance of these wastewater treatment systems is critical for protecting public health, as well as groundwater and surface-water resources.
