Would You Like to Know More About Septic Tank Installation and How it Works?

It's essential to get as much information about your family's water requirements before deciding on what size septic tank you need. It depends on the square footage of the house and how many people live there. Take into account the number of visitors you have come over for holidays as well.

An average septic tank size ranges from 750 gallons to over 1,250-gallon capacity. APN Companies installation specialists can advise you on the three most commonly installed septic tank types for residential use.

  •  Concrete

  •  Polyethylene or plastic

  • Fiberglass

Concrete tanks are very popular. However, their weight requires the use of heavy machinery during installation. Fiberglass and Polyethylene are much lighter. They are manufactured in one piece, which makes them easy to place in hard to access areas. You may have to adhere to strict local building codes during the installation process. Your local septic contractor will know the onsite wastewater treatment regulations that must be enforced.

Sizing the Right Septic Tank for Your Family

professional septic contractor will know how to determine the right size septic system for you. It is related to how many bedrooms your home has, the permanent and visiting occupants, and the square footage. A basic guideline to septic tank size looks something like this.

  • 750-gallon capacity for a one to two bedroom house

  • 1,000-gallon for a three bedrooms house

  • 1,250-gallon for four bedrooms houses

As private sewage disposal becomes more prevalent as environmental concerns grow, over 33% of all newly constructed houses are choosing to install onsite wastewater treatment. Septic tanks are an excellent way to control the significant amounts of treated chemicals that are used by mainstream sewage waste facilities.

When a septic tank system is combined with a soil absorption technique, such as a drainfield, it is the most cost-effective residential wastewater method on the market. The septic tank you choose is an entirely self-contained unit. It is designed to handle the residence's wastewater and hold it for processing. The two main sewer components of drainage (soil absorption field) and tank can deal with all the biodegradable waste products that your household produce.

Sludge or slurry layer is the solid waste that settles at the bottom of the tank. The grease and oil by-products create a layer floating on top. The wastewater is the middle layer that is absorbed by the drainfield carefully isolated from the groundwater supply.
