Should You Fit A Septic Tank Or Not?

By: Susan Sportman

Are you thinking of installing a septic tank or a sewage solution propagate, here are a couple of pointers for you, I am going to start by mentioning three different options available for you to consider. Firstly, you should take a look at the choice of fitting a septic container opposed to a sewage solution place and the (pros and cons), secondly the options available for septic tanks and the choices available for sewage therapy plants.

So! why not begin with taking a look at septic container against the sewage remedy place. This does not normally boil down to private choice (also most people do decide to set up a sewage remedy place just because they are convinced that it will unquestionably be the scraper alternative, but this isnít always true). A solution unit is a septic tank with a treatment solution inside, the main reason for fitting a solution treatment type is for 2 reasons. One, because you could be located close to drinking water, and secondly, you may have bad ground percolation making it unattainable to use a a septic container drainage on your proerty.

What options are readily available if you wish to install a septic tank? With a septic tank there are not many options open to you, you have the Klargester fashion onion shape systems, these are fitted with a baffle system which floats in the container to isolate the waste water from the solid waste, but due to the fact the solid waste remains in close proximity to the waste water the amount of solution is limited. An alternative is a cylindrical septic tank, these tanks are longer and flatter than the onion shape and these are significantly easier to fit and maintain, additionally the cylindrical septic tank has a larger quantity of the solution because of having totally individual chambers separating the solid waste from the liquid.

Now regarding treatment plants. This is where it gets hard to determine which type to choose because of the amount of choices available. Letís start off with aeration treatment units, these units typically have 3 stages. The initial stage is a holding container for the solids in the septic container. The second could be the aeration chamber where the waste water is cleared by forcing air in through a membrane, and the 3rd is a chamber where the effluent is discharged out of the container.

One more option is a filtration solution container like the BIOROCK, these units use natural expelled air to feed a wide rock and roll purge which uses the cardio bacteria. These units use a large container in preference to the cylindrical septic container. The moment the waste water reaches the BIOROCK it trickles straight down the rock purge returning it to the micro organism treating it and is then expelled out of the base of the tank.

Quite a few options are readily available for the treatment of sewage, so in brief, if it is easier to have a septic tank installed, doing so is the better option, and as long as you install a properly built soakaway then the septic container will perform well, but if the only option is a sewage treatment plant like a Klargester Biodisc then make sure you do some good research.
