The level of pollutants reduction provided by septic tanks usually do not allow to use them as the only step of wastewater treatment. In practice WWT solution with septic tank often is combined with secondary treatment alternatives – filtration fields, constructed wetlands and biological ponds – and is used also as pre-treatment for packaged activated sludge processes
Septic tank provides primary wastewater treatment. It can be both factory manufactured or assembled with concrete details on site. Traditional septic tank contains only one section. The newest models of septic tanks consist of two sections to avoid sludge flushing to output pipe. During operation, the sludge layer consisting of various insoluble matters accumulates on the bottom of a septic tank. This layer should be periodically removed to make in use total volume of septic tank.
Basic principles of operation
The treatment efficiency of septic tank strongly depends not only on characteristics of influent wastewater, but also on the size of septic tank, because optimal retention time gives more viability to the process of treatment.
VillageWaters suggest most effective wastewater treatment solutions in scattered dwellings households, which use their own, independently operated water purification systems.
Environmentally oriented families and homeowners, who live in scattered dwellings areas, where connecting to larger wastewater plants is not option because rural distances.
