Septic tank installation
Septic tank installing is a good idea. Unless you are close to the municipal sewer system, you will have to install your own waste disposal system. Already more than one third of Americans and Canadians have installed septic tanks in their homes.
Your waste from your house is stored in an underground vessel, which is called septic tank. A sub-department that deals with septic tanks installation is what most plumbing companies have. A field is required where water from the tank can flow into the soil. This field is known as a drain field.
What is the cost of a septic tank installation?
Before the purchase of a septic tank, the size of your family or company must be taken into consideration. The cost of installing the entire system varies from one city to another. Between $1899 and $8000 is what many buyers spend on one tank, just to mention. Tanks come in different sizes. Each company has its own price range depending on the material used to make the tank. Your plumber should be consulted first before buying a tank. Make sure you buy your tank from a reputable company too.
Your family is not the only factor that your installer will take into account. The type of soil where the drain field will be is important factor. Different soils are separated by absorption rates. One of the major examples is loam which absorbs more water than sand. Two types of septic tanks systems exist. Aerobic and anaerobic systems are which we are talking about. An anaerobic system relies on bacteria that can survive in absence of oxygen. What the bacteria does is, it is breaking down the solid waste into sludge.
An aerobic system can’t function in absence of oxygen because bacteria needs oxygen to survive. Without oxygen, the bacteria won ´ t be able to break down the waste. This means that you must pump oxygen into the tank, otherwise the system will fail. In addition, the anaerobic systems are cheaper and easier to maintain. To install pipes from your house to the tank you will need the plumber. Taking all the factors above in consideration, the installation will cost between $1000 and $6000. A normal function of an aerobic system needs an extra sub-system of letting oxygen into the tank. It is part of the system as an addition to pipes from your house to the tank. It is more costly and more difficult to maintain compared to the former. Such a type would cost between $8000 and $22000.
