Septic tank installation
It is a good idea to install a septic tank in Burlington. If you are not close to municipal sewer system, you will have to install your own waste disposal system. Till this moment, 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. A sub-department that deals with septic tanks installation is part of most plumbing companies. 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.
How much does it cost to install a septic tank?
Before buying a septic tank, you need to consider the size of your family or company. Also worth mentioning, the cost of installing the entire system varies from one city to another. Many buyers spend between $1899 and $8000 on one tank as a matter of fact. Size and type of tanks are different. Depending on the material used to make the tank, each company has its own price. The best thing to do is to consult your plumber before buying the tank. Buying the tank from a reputable company is what we would advise you to do.
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 one of these factors. Different soils have different absorption rates. One of the major examples is loam which absorbs more water than sand. Two types of septic tanks systems are in existence. Aerobic and anaerobic systems are which we are talking about. In absence of oxygen bacteria can survive which is the vital part of anaerobic system to function. What breaks down the solid waste into sludge is the bacteria.
An aerobic system to function, has to rely on bacteria that need oxygen to survive. In absense of oxygen, the bacteria can not break down the waste. This means that you must pump oxygen into the tank, otherwise the system will fail. Also worth knowing, the anaerobic systems are cheaper and easier to maintain. Your plumber will only install pipes from your house to the tank. The installation will cost between $1000 and $6000 depending on the other factors discussed above. An extra sub-system of letting in oxygen into the tank is required by an aerobic system. It is a part added to pipes from your house to the tank. Compared to the former, that makes it more costly, and more difficult to maintain. Such a type would cost between $8000 and $22000.
