Conventional septic systems are the most common septic systems, having been used the longest in homes and commercial properties nationwide.
How do they work?
First, the tanks separate the solids. Second, gravity is used to feed the clean water into an absorptive drain field or leach field.
These systems rely on rock and pipe or polyethylene panels to create a void for the effluent to be stored in the ground while the soil absorbs it and filters the water back into the ground. These systems require no moving parts and are always our first choice to install when the soil conditions permit.
