Aerobic septic systems were invented to allow people to have a reliable way to treat effluents in soils containing heavy clays, rock, groundwater, and flat ground. The main benefit of an aerobic systems is that the effluents are very clean when they leave the system. The system keeps working no matter how much rain one has or how poor the soil is.
How do they work?
Aerobic septic systems are very similar to a small wastewater treatment plant in that they introduce oxygen to the effluents, which enables aerobic bacteria to thrive. These bacteria then clean the effluents. The water is then treated with chlorine and safely able to be sprayed into one’s yard.
