Process of installation of septic tank
To install a septic tank in Brantford is a very good idea. If you are not close to the municipal sewer system, you will have to install your own waste disposal system. By now, over one third of Americans and Canadians have installed septic tanks in their homes.
Septic tank has a role as an underground vessel which stores the waste from your house. Most plumbing companies have a sub-department that deals with septic tanks installation. As a part of septic system, you need a field where water from the tank can flow into the soil. It is known as a drain field.
What is the cost of a septic tank installation?
You must take into consideration the size of your family or company before you make the purchase of septic tank. In addition, the cost of installing the entire system varies from one city to another. Therewith, many buyers spend between $1899 and $8000 on one tank. There are different types of tanks. Price range varies depending on the company and on the material used to make the tank. Your plumber should be consulted first before buying a tank. I would also advise you to make sure that you buy your tank from a reputable company.
There are other factors that your installer will consider other than the size of your family. One of these factors is the type of soil where the drain field will be. Various absorption rates are distinguished by different soils. One of the major examples is loam which absorbs more water than sand. There are two types of septic tanks systems. These mentioned are aerobic and anaerobic systems. An anaerobic system functions basically on bacteria that can get by in absence of oxygen. What the bacteria does is, it is breaking down the solid waste into sludge.
An aerobic system to function, has to rely on bacteria that need oxygen to survive. Oxygen is what the bacteria needs to break down the waste. The system will fail unless you don’t pump oxygen into the tank. Also worth knowing, the anaerobic systems are cheaper and easier to maintain. Installation of pipes from your house to the tank will be done by the plumber. The installation will cost you between $1000 and $6000 and it is based on all the factors mentioned above. An aerobic system requires an extra sub-system of letting in oxygen into the tank. It is in addition to pipes from your house to the tank. That makes it more costly, and more difficult to maintain compared to the former. Between $8000 and $22000 will it cost.
