Aerobic septic systems were invented to allow people to have a reliable way to treat effluent in soils containing heavy clay’s, rock, ground water and flat ground. The benefits of aerobic systems are that the effluent is very clean when it leaves the system and they keep on working no matter how much rain one has or how poor the soils are.
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.
