Are you planning to construct a commercial septic tank system in your facility? Here’s what you need to know. A septic system is an on-site process of treating and disposing of sanitary wastewater. This article covers the commercial septic tank system and its advantages.
A typical commercial septic system often comprises of the following:
Buried tank - dispels suspended solids from raw wastewater
Effluent distribution system
Soil absorption area – provides for additional effective treatment and attenuation through the processes of adsorption, dispersion, and biodegradation
Septic systems may also come with grease traps or other pre-treatment technologies. More sophisticated designs have come into the market that have several small septic tanks that drain to a dry well, or have connections to multiple absorption areas used on a rotating basis.
Septic systems are commonly used in rural and suburban areas where people often depend on groundwater for their drinking water. If a septic system is properly sited, designed, constructed, operated, and maintained it will pose a little threat to drinking water sources. However, poorly designed, maintained, or operated septic systems often contaminate groundwater or surface water.
HOW DO COMMERCIAL SEPTIC SYSTEMS WORK?
A high-performance commercial septic system has similarities with a residential system. Waste and wastewater can still be flushed down the toilet, sink or shower, and end up in the septic tank.
This septic tank acts as a repository for solid waste. It is one of the differences between commercial and residential systems, as it will typically be large in size because more people are likely using the system. Wastewater after being treated through the drainfield goes into the ground as clean groundwater.
Some larger commercial septic systems come with either horizontal or vertical extensions in order to handle big volumes of waste. You must call an experienced company who has years of experience in setting up commercial septic systems.
