septic tank installation

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 numerous different types of tanks. Price range depends on the material used to make the tank and depends on the company too. Consulting your plumber before buying the tank is the best thing to do. I would also advise you to make sure that you buy your tank from a reputable company.
Beside your family, your installer will take other factors in consideration. The type of soil where the drain field will be is important factor. Every soil has its own absorption rate. Just an example, loam absorbs more water than sand. Two types of septic tanks systems are there. Aerobic and anaerobic systems are which we are talking about. An anaerobic system functions basically on bacteria that can endure 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. You must pump oxygen into the tank, otherwise the system will fail. Thus, the anaerobic systems are cheaper and easier to maintain. To install pipes from your house to the tank you will need the plumber. The installation will cost between $1000 and $6000 depends on all the factors mentioned above. 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. Compared to the former, that makes it more costly, and more difficult to maintain. Between $8000 and $22000 will it cost.
