If you are planning on installing or replacing an old septic system, there are a few things that you should remember. The first thing that you should do is to look out for the best spot for your drain field. Find a good place for your drain field, it shouldn’t be near trees or bushes. Regularly pumping your septic systems is a must. Doing this might benefit you in the future.

Before the installation of the septic system starts, you need to know which type of septic system to use on your property. This is often very important if your property has conditions that can affect the proper wastewater disposal. If the septic system that was installed isn't designed to fit in your property, you will find yourself having to pay extra money to repair it.

There are a lot of types of septic systems that you can install on your property. These systems fall under two categories: alternative systems and traditional systems. When it involves alternative systems, there are plenty of types that you can choose

Here is a variety of the septic system that you can install on your property:

Conventional Septic System

It is also mentioned as a basic or standard system. The process of this system starts within the tank, which holds all of the wastewater from your home. The wastewater and also other solid wastes then separate into different layers over time. The grease and lighter solids float to the top part of the tank, while the solids sink to the bottom of the tank where plenty of naturally-occurring bacteria breaks it down.

The middle part of the system is formed from partially treated wastewater. As gravity (or pumps) pushes them out of the tank, it flows directly through the drain field or leach field. A drainfield is made from underground pipes that are usually surrounded by permeable gravel or solids. The drain field contains bacterias that help treat the wastewater and also helps remove most of the impurities of the opposite organic materials by digesting it.

Alternative Septic System

Some areas won't be suitable for the traditional system. An example is that very high waters can disrupt proper drainage. Some soil types and depths are not appropriate for conventional systems. Due to this, you can use the alternative septic system. The only difference between the traditional system and the alternative system is the way the system handles the wastewater.

Here are a few samples of another septic system:

Evapotranspiration Septic System

This system disposes of the wastewater through evaporation. The wastewater then evaporates through the nearby fields of plants, grass, and even nearby sands. This septic system is only recommended for environments that get a small amount of rainfall annually.

Recirculating Sand Filter System

A loop can also be installed into a sand filtering system. Before the effluent leaves the tank, it goes through the sand filter twice before it gets dispersed.

Mound Septic System

If there is a problem with the soil type or depth, the drain fields are often installed above ground. This is usually called the mound. It's made up of a sand fill with gravel-filled pipes.

Low-Pressure Pipe Septic System

If your property has shallow soil, you will be able to use the system called low-pressure pipe or LPP. It's kind of a typical system. The difference is that it is a pumping chamber, which is additionally called a dosing chamber, between the drainfield and the tank. The LPP pushes the wastewater through the chamber and to the drainfield twice every day.

Aerobic Treatment Unit

Anaerobic treatment unit uses oxygen to break down organic wastes. Compared to other standard systems, the tactic is quicker, and the discharged water is far cleaner. This technique is additionally less likely to develop problems within the tank.

Intermittent Sand Filter System

-If your property doesn't have enough soil to treat the wastewater, a sand filter system is usually used. With this system, the wastewater goes through the sand folder before it disperses into the soil.

What are the benefits of a septic system?

Septic systems are often environmentally friendly and price effective thanks to its few maintenances. To be able to control your own sewage system will help you in reducing your water bills. The septic system also removes contaminants and removes wastes and releases freshwater back to them, giving the soil and plants the nutrients they have to flourish.
