When you live in an area without a sewage system, it’s very important to have a septic tank. Many neighborhoods and cities have sewer systems that drain wastewater after a single toilet flush. However, if you don’t live in an area with a drainage system that’s maintained and funded by local governments, then you must have a septic system in place to do it for you. If you think about all the water, we used that needs somewhere to go when we are done showering, weekly laundry, and even the dishes, there is a drainage system working in the background to remove this wastewater.
Many residential homes and even businesses are starting to have septic tanks for their more affordable and environmentally alluring advantages. Let’s look at all the benefits of a new Septic Installation.
As mentioned, septic tanks offer an environmentally friendly way to manage waste. Imagine having a home with a sewage system that drains into sewers. People don’t think about the potential problems of these as compared to a septic tank. If the sewer line were to leak, it would allow fecal matter and urine and any other wastewater to contaminate groundwater. That is a problem! With a septic tank system, however, the wastewater doesn’t run through a sewer. There still is some risk for leaks, but the risk is much lower. In addition, a septic tank has a filtration system to make it more environmentally friendly. Septic tanks are the better option than a sewer system.
Another benefit for a septic tank would be the affordability. When you have a septic system, you remove the water bill that you get for your county, since you’re not using a system run on the public water. Over the months and years, you have saved quite a bit of money on public water bills. Not to mention, costs you would have spent to install new pipes.
When considering the septic tank care and services needed, it is rather easy. Depending on the size of your septic tank, you will only need septic professionals to come out every three to five years. A septic tank is a low-maintenance option for managing your wastewater. Keep your tank running optimally with inspections and septic pumping.
My favorite thing about a septic tank system is its longevity. These septic systems will last you thirty to forty years if you give it regular maintenance and care. I don’t know of any other utility around the house that will last that long. It is definitely worth the investment.
Lastly, we mentioned a filtration system on our septic tanks. These systems have on-site water treatment, unlike sewage systems. We don’t have to depend on someone else to do the job right or not. If there is a problem with the water filtration system, all you have to do is call a septic professional to come out and get you fixed in a few hours unlike waiting for the city to fix the problem which could take days.
