A Septic Service and What They Can Do
A septic service will usually offer double compartment or single compartment tanks when installation is discussed. Double compartment tanks keep sludge, scum and effluent in two compartments.
It is a boon for the economy as well. Using such systems keeps septic contractors in business, creating more jobs for their employees. It enables them to eke out a stable living.
c. Environmental advantages
Perhaps the eco-friendliness of these tanks is their greatest draw. Septic tanks only deal with possible pollution of their area. If you pump them every two to three years, the sludge will not overflow into the disposal field. Conversely, sewers bring pollutants to another area, potentially causing more pollution.
Septic Tanks Are Cleaner Than You Think
Septic tanks are cleaner than you might think. The bacteria in septic tanks work within it and out in the field. After they break down organic material in the tank, they flow out into the field with the effluent and work with soil bacteria to break down more pathogens. At times, the effluent released is cleaner than the water you drink. It does not release foul odors either.
Septic tanks, if well-installed, do not cause damage. Septic tank providers do not need to tear up roads or settle the ground for repairs. Contractors leave behind dangerous potholes and trenches behind when digging for sewage systems.
This aside, septic tanks do not deplete the ground well water in the way sewers do. In some areas, water in sewers dries up, leaving smelly, toxic pollutants behind.
Does a septic tank suit you? The benefits of septic tank systems are endless, but they are more suitable for households in rural areas. They may not work well in densely populated city areas where there is no space to house the tanks, or drain effluent into fields.
Those living in the countryside, with houses reasonably far apart, will benefit from hiring a septic tank service. They will have enough space for the tanks. Further, sewage is not often collected from rural areas. In this situation, a septic tank will serve a family’s daily disposal needs.
