After purchasing your new rural property, one of the things you must consider first is installing a septic system. This prospect may overwhelm you, mainly if you are used to urban sewer and water lines. But, like any other system, you have a myriad of septic treatment options, including aerobic septic systems. If you must install a septic treatment system, here are some reasons to go for an aerobic type:
The common pitfall associated with conventional septic systems is the high risk of contamination. If a failing septic system has ever inconvenienced you, then you should understand the severity of this problem. Often, complete system overhaul and installation are necessary to address the issue.
Ideal for Unsuitable Soil
Not every property you purchase will be ideal for your traditional septic treatment system. For example, soil conditions such as clay or rocky soil do not support optimal absorption. That's when an aerobic septic system becomes invaluable since it doesn't rely on soil conditions. Most of the treatment happens inside the unit and not the surrounding soils. Therefore, if many contractors turn down your bid due to preexisting soil conditions, your best shot would be opting for an aerobic system. It's the most preferred alternative if the soil condition doesn't support conventional septic systems.
The Changing Lot
Installation of a septic treatment system may be an arduous task if there are trees, access roads, or other structures on your property. Installation of a conventional septic treatment system on lots featuring full-grown trees, in-ground pools, and patios is a challenging prospect. However, the flexibility and space-efficiency of aerobic systems are unmatched because installation doesn't affect vital features. If you would love to retain your coveted oak tree or in-ground pool, then consider installing an aerobic septic treatment system.
There is no way water will go to waste when using an aerobic septic system. For example, domestic water used for simple tasks such as laundry can be recycled for use in watering your plants. Besides, the system handles all cleaning agents and soaps that go down your drains. That means water treatment takes place before it's released for domestic uses.
Above all, all the benefits brought about by an aerobic septic system can be realized with proper maintenance. While these systems are highly advanced, they require regular assessments every four months to promote high-end performance and good water quality. It's, therefore, imperative that the company you hire for installation should also offer professional maintenance services to your septic system.Share

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Heather, and a few years ago, my partner and I got a very cheap property up in the mountains practically in the middle of nowhere. I knew we had to build, but there were many elements that I overlooked. I never even considered the idea that we wouldn't be connected to a town sewer system for example. However, I learned quickly as we built our septic tank. Through the process, I also researched a lot of alternatives to ensure we got the perfect septic system for our needs. If you are building on a new property and you don't have the option of sewer, this blog has everything you need to know about septic systems. I truly love to help others, and I hope these posts help you.
