Thinking about a septic system? You’ve come to the right place. Here our experts answer your most pressing questions about installing septic systems in Orlando.
If you’re a homeowner or business owner and your property is outside a municipality, you may need to rely on a septic system instead of the city’s sewer. Most septic system owners enjoy the autonomy of not having to rely on the shared system for their wastewater disposal needs. There are many more benefits to having a septic system, but before we start installing septic systems in Orlando, let’s go to the beginning.
How Does A Septic System Work?
Unlike a central sewage system, where waste is drained from your home or office from a city-run sewer, a septic system is self-reliant. All waste from your house runs through a main line into your septic tank, which is buried in the ground.
Your septic tank is a water-tight container with one job – to hold the wastewater long enough for the solids to settle to the bottom while oil and grease float to the top. The waste that is left behind in the tank gets “eaten” by beneficial bacteria.
The liquid wastewater then flows through the drain field system, where it is eventually discharged into the soil. The soil filters and cleans the water before it discharges as groundwater.
What Are The Benefits Of A Septic System?
Now that you know how it works, let’s talk about why you should consider the benefits of installing septic systems in Orlando. We’ve mentioned the “off the grid” aspect that is attractive to some homeowners, but here are some other reasons.
Since your wastewater isn’t flowing through sewage lines, the chances of a leak are minimal. When raw sewage leaks into the ground, it can be a biohazard and require significant cleanup efforts. A septic system greatly reduces the chances of this type of leaking. Your septic system also minimizes the amount of your pollution because it uses a natural filtration system. Who knew septic systems were so green?
No more city septic bills! Once your septic system is installed, your maintenance is minimal. Regular pumping will keep it running smoothly for years.
Lasts For Decades
A properly installed and maintained septic system can last upwards of 30 years. If you follow these simple rules, your system should be worry-free:
- Don’t flush anything but water and human waste
- Follow a regular pumping and cleaning schedule
When you do need to call a septic company like Acme for maintenance, or if you have an issue like standing water above your tank, the fixes are relatively simple. You don’t have to rely on a city-wide system and the inconvenience that can come with getting your sewer system repaired.
