Premier Plastics Inc. has 25 years’ experience with engineering design and installing below surface septic tank alternatives. The main element design factor of poly septic tanks for below floor use is the resistance to compression buckling or pressure from the outside in. That is complete opposite to above surface tanks where in fact the pressure is from the inside out. The main element design factor is the tensile power of the materials. To resist buckling, below surface tanks have a thicker wall and are usually spherical in condition with light ribbing, or non-spherical (loaf shape) with heavy ribbing. The small smooth triangular ribbing design of our SuperTanks holds the stresses in-line with the flat surfaces which lead to a profile that resists pressure evenly from the top, the sides, and the ends of the tank. No others tank design can lay claim this. Never grind up (macerate) your sewage before mailing to a septic tank unless absolutely necessary. Pumping cured sewage (after septic tank) up to the leach field with lift up station is actually a choice, but do not macerate (pump) effluent prior to the septic container. The septic tank operates by digesting solids and settling sludge to underneath and allowing grease to float to the very best of the septic fish tank. Macerating the sewage before going into the septic tank will create a septic reservoir without the large solids, only a cloud of ground up sewage allergens. Whenever you send these allergens out to the leach field, you are destined to eventually clog the ground with bio-mat and then your leach field fails.
Periodic preventive maintenance is required to remove solids that stay and gradually fill the tank, minimizing its efficiency. Maintenance requires regular pumping to eliminate these. 4 Based on the US Environmental Protection Agency, in america it is the home owners’ responsibility to keep up their septic systems. 5 Anyone who disregards this necessity will eventually be confronted with costly vehicle repairs when solids get away from the container and clog the clarified water effluent disposal system.
Your septic system site plan is typically drawn directly on top of your premises survey demonstrating the septic container ‘setbacks’ with fish tank 5-10 toes from the home, the leach field at least 20 ft from the house, at least 100 foot away from wells and streams, 25 feet away from dry gulches, and 10 foot away from the property lines. Or whatever the local regulatory officials require, so check with the state first for minimal setbacks.
Pump out and have the septic container system inspected by a specialist every 3 years. Failure to pump out the septic reservoir is the most common reason behind septic system inability. If the septic container fills up with an excessive amount of solids, the wastewater will not have enough time to stay in the fish tank. These excessive solids will then spread to the drain field where they will clog the drain lines and ground.
Most unsewered developments in Western Australia use septic reservoir systems to treat and get rid of sewage, also referred to as wastewater. Septic container systems generally contain one or two watertight cylindrical tanks called septic tanks and one or two packages of drainage receptacles which have holes in their area sand no bottom e.g. leach drains or soakwells.
