Upgrading Your Septic Tank
Your septic system is crucial for homes not connected to a municipal sewage system. Without the right septic tank and installation, you can be left with a system that requires constant repairs. This video shows how to upgrade your septic system to avoid septic repairs.
Depending on the nitrogen levels and the environmental regulations in your area, you may need added filtration. A traditional septic tank may not work. There are septic tanks with specialized filtration systems. The wastewater will be filtered multiple times to ensure the nitrogen levels are low enough.
The water then goes through piping into a leech field. With the added filtration, the pipes can be much thinner. It also allows for more compact leech fields. You can landscape around the field to hide it, too.
The construction that goes into installing a septic tank is involved. The tank needs to be buried in the ground, along with the required pipes for transportation. It’s important to check with your municipal codes to make sure everything is legally ok. The last thing you want to do is re-install a septic tank because the first one isn’t up to code.
