One of the most efficient ways of eliminating waste through natural filtering process of the soil is through septic tanks. This helps in filtering the waste water and dispenses water for recycling. This is a simple and affordable solution to manage waste within a property. You can decide on the size of the septic tank depending on the number of people living in your house. Moose Creek Cement Products provides quality and durable septic tanks in different sizes.
A septic tank is the main part of your septic system, which is responsible for storage and filtration. It has two sections, one section being 2/3rd of the tank and the other being 1/3rd of the tank. The first section has a top layer, a liquid layer, and a sediment layer. Both sections have billions of natural bacteria that for the treatment of household waste. They help in breaking down solids and sludge. When the wastewater leaves the septic tank and enters the leaching field, a different type of bacteria that requires oxygen, filtrates and decomposes the waste particles.
Holding tanks are generally used in areas such as very small lots, environmentally sensitive locations, and places with high water tables where a septic system cannot be used. It is the only storage for household waste until it is pumped out. An audible and visual alarm has to be installed to indicate the amount of waste in the tank.
