When it comes to wastewater treatment, there are two options homeowners have; sewer lines connected to the city’s plumbing system, or a personal septic tank. While typically the choice has been made already, some owners can decide for themselves which they can utilize. If a home decides to be “off the grid” and install a septic tank, it comes with a range of benefits, as long as it is properly maintained.
Septic Tanks are a concrete (usually) tank and wastewater distribution system built into the ground around your home. For plots that are large enough, septic tanks can be an excellent solution for treating wastewater. They are more environmentally friendly, more cost-effective, and can keep your soil well irrigated should you have plants on your property.
Contact an Environmentally Conscious Contractor to Install Your Septic Tank
As a Green Certified Business and member of the US Green Chamber of Commerce, Full Cesspool Plumbing Service can install and maintain your septic tank system in Suffolk County or Nassau. If you’re looking to install one, you need to make sure that your soil is permeable enough and that you have a large enough plot of land to hold the tank itself.
While septic tank installation costs can be high, maintenance costs are relatively low. Because you don’t have to pay the city for sewage treatment, and you only need to get the tank pumped every three years (to avoid clogging or buildup), it can be very cost-effective in the long run.
Septic Tanks are also environmentally friendly in that they treat your wastewater naturally, using bacteria to break down solids. It also irrigates your soil to make it nutrient-rich for plants, which can cut down on your watering needs significantly. While you can’t have trees or bushes above the tank itself, the land surrounding it will be sufficiently watered.
