Four Septic Systems Solutions That Can Reduce Problems And Repairs

by Chris Bowman

If you need to have a septic system installed for your home, there are many different choices available. You may be able to have a conventional septic system installed, or you may need to have an alternative solution. No matter what type of system you need, there are things that can be done to reduce maintenance and repairs. Here are some of the choices you have for a modern septic system that gives you less trouble:

1. Septic Systems With Separate Greywater Collection

Greywater can be a great resource for your home.  This water can be used for irrigation and many other outdoor needs. The greywater can come directly from things like appliances or stored in your septic system. Some septic systems can have a separate tank to store the greywater for other uses and keep it separate from sewage waste.

2. Aerobatic Systems That Treat And Recycle Water

Aerobatic systems are used as an alternative sewer treatment system. These systems can have a drain field like a common septic system or they can recycle the water. A special aerobatic system can be used to thoroughly treat sewage waste in a self-contained system. The treated water can then be used for various tasks, such as for flushing toilets or for landscape sprinklers.

3. Mound Systems With Improved Drainage Medium

Mounds can also be used as an alternative to conventional septic systems. These are systems that have a earthen mound to raise the level of drainage. These systems are ideals for areas with water tables that are too close to the surface. They can also have a liner and improved filter medium installed. Mound systems can also be disguised with landscaping design features like retaining walls.

4. Wetland Septic Treatment Systems For A Natural Alternative

For a more natural septic system solution, wetlands can be used to filter affluent drainage. These retention ponds that have a liner and are planted with aquatic plant life will naturally filter and treat the waste. This can be a good solution if contamination is a concern or for remote locations where servicing and repairs can be more difficult. These systems will still require servicing of the tank with regular septic tank pumping like other systems.

These are some of the modern choices for septic systems that cause you less trouble. If you are ready to have a new septic system installed for your home, contact a sewer repair service such as Drainline Plumbing & Sewer Specialist and talk with them about some of these systems.
