Septic Tank Installation Process
Installing a septic tank in Whitby is a very good idea. Vicinity of the municipal sewer system will determine if you need to install your own waste disposal system. Till this moment, over one third of Americans and Canadians have installed septic tanks in their homes.
Like an underground vessel, your septic tank stores waste from your house. Plumbing companies that have a sub-department that deals with septic tanks installation are in majority. Water from the tank has to flow into the soil and for that you need a field. This field is known under the name of drain field.
How much does it cost for a septic tank installation?
Before the purchase of a septic tank, the size of your family or company must be taken into consideration. Furthermore, 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. There are numerous different types of tanks. Each company has its own price range depending on the material used to make the tank. We would advise you to consult your plumber before buying the tank. Also, make sure you buy your tank from a reputable company.
[ssad ssadblk=”install2″] Other than the size of your family, there are other factors that your installer will consider. The type of soil where the drain field will be is important factor. Various absorption rates are distinguished by different soils. Just to have an image of importance, loam absorbs more water than sand. Two types of septic tanks systems exist in the market. These are aerobic and anaerobic systems. In absence of oxygen bacteria can survive which is the vital part of anaerobic system to function. The bacteria break down the solid waste into sludge.
An aerobic system relies on bacteria that need oxygen to survive. In absense of oxygen, the bacteria can not break down the waste. The system will fail unless you don’t pump oxygen into the tank. The anaerobic systems are cheaper and easier to maintain too. Your plumber will only install pipes from your house to the tank. Depending on the other factors discussed above, the installation will cost between $1000 and $6000. An extra sub-system of letting in oxygen into the tank is required by an aerobic system. 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. Such will cost between $8000 and $22000.
