Aerobic Service Contracts
Aerobic Septic Systems Need Attention, Too
Aerobic treatment system (also called aerobic septic systems) are a type of septic system that is basically a sewage treatment plant but on a much smaller scale. Aerobic systems us an aerobic process (hence the name) that digests and treats the waste, rather than just contains it for later septic pumping like traditional anaerobic systems. Naturally, these are found in more rural areas where public sewer service is most likely not available.

One of the first differences you will notice with an aerobic treatment system from your traditional septic system is the use of oxygen. An aerobic system injects oxygen into the treatment tank. This allows for bacterial growth that will help treat the waste. The steps to an aerobic system usually include:
Pretreatment where larger solids and other substances that should not have been put into the system are removed
Introduction of bacteria to help to digest the biological waste. Bacteria, as living organisms, need oxygen, which is why oxygen is regularly ingested into the aerobic treatment system
The solids that the bacteria cannot digest fall to the bottom. These have to be regularly pumped and removed by your local septic system service, such as Septic One in Fort Worth
An optional disinfectant process can be utilized where disinfectants are added, such as chlorine. Sometimes UV light is utilized to disinfect the effluent. This can serve to allow the effluent to be dispersed in the ground.
The aerobic treatment system of wastes is an incredibly fast process since the bacteria work much faster, having oxygen to fuel their growth and their processes. However, you will need electricity to pump in oxygen, which can increase the cost of this type of septic system. However, the wastewater that is produced is much cleaner than in a traditional septic system.
Another advantage of an aerobic system over an anaerobic treatment system is that it requires a lot less space to install. Thus, if a homeowner has a wooded lot full of beautiful trees they don’t want to cut down to make room for a septic tank and a drainfield, this system would be ideal for that property.
The versatility of the aerobic system allows it to be installed in plots of land that otherwise would not be suitable for building, either small plots or hilly and wooded plots. Regular maintenance of this more needy type of septic system will be essential in order to prolong its longevity and keep it functioning properly.
