Septic systems include the main line moving all the waste water from the building, the septic tank to collect the waster water from the main line, and the drain field to return treated water back into the ground. Installing these systems are a major undertaking that involves detailed analysis to properly size and design the system, building permits, inspections, heavy machinery, and skilled technicians to complete the installation.
The majority of commercial and residential systems are the conventional type. They are the simplest design consisting of a septic tank and drain field pipes covered in a field of gravel. A conventional system may not be an option depending on the hardness of the soil, amount of land available for the drain field, or if the system will be in close proximity to clean water sources like wells or wetlands.
Chamber systems are used in areas where the water table is high and choosing a conventional system would cause too many waste water back-ups. The main difference in the design between a chamber system and a conventional system is that the drain field consists of several pipes and chambers to drain the treated water into the soil instead of simple pipes covered in gravel.
Similar to a chamber system, an aerobic system can also be used where the water table is high or where there isn’t much land for a drain field. This type system infuses oxygen into the waste water contained in the septic tank to assist in breaking down and treating the waste. The purpose is the treat the waste quickly and more efficiently. The downside is these systems have a much greater requirement for regular maintenance.
The main differences between a drip distribution system and a conventional system are the existence of a second tank and the drain field that consists of many more distribution pipes buried in a shallower depth in the soil. These systems can be used in locations where natural hard clay exists that may make digging a deeper conventional system much more costly. The second tank receives the water out of the septic tank to help control the distribution of water through the drip system drain field. This type of system also requires much more maintenance and electric components.
The drain field of an evapotranspiration system is waterproof from underneath and the sides to prevent ground water from getting into it. The drain field is filled with various layers of gravel and sand. In this system the waste water is simply evaporated into the air instead of being absorbed back into the soil. This works well in hot, dry climates where evaporation can be relied upon. Too much rain or humidity will prevent the system from functioning properly and could cause waste problems.
