Types Of Septic Tank Systems

There are a variety of septic tank systems that you can choose from, each of which functions differently depending on the needs of your property. The 3 types of septic tank systems are:

Conventional Septic Image


Conventional systems use gravity to bring sewage into the tank. Once inside the tank, the solid waste settles at the bottom, and the liquid waste rises to the top before it enters the drain field. The solid waste remains in the tank until it is flushed out. Conventional septic systems are often affordable but have a larger footprint than a new-style system.

Alternative Septic Image


Alternative systems use oxygen to break down sewage in the tank. This process produces cleaner liquid waste, which means homeowners can set aside less land for the drain field. Because alternative systems take up less space and produce cleaner wastewater, they can be more expensive than conventional tanks. However, by producing a cleaner effluent, your septic field can last much longer, saving you money in the long term.

Engineered Septic Image


Engineered systems are most often used on land that is sloped or contains poor soil. Because the conditions of the land prevent any liquid waste from draining on its own into the drain field, it needs to be pumped. This results in these septic systems being more expensive than traditional models. However, these symptoms can be installed where a conventional system cannot.
