Do you cringe when it rains because it may result in having a septic problem? What about when the underground wastewater begins to overflow because of drain field problems? Having sewage backup is the last thing people want to think about, however, it does happen. As some of you may know, repairing your septic installation is very important for so many reasons. Orschell Excavating in Indiana near Cincinnati Ohio now is a licensed and certified septic tank installer along with septic drain field excavation.
Septic systems consist of two main parts: a septic tank and a drain field. The septic tanks are watertight boxes that are made out of concrete or fiberglass, with an inlet and outlet pipe. As the wastewater flows from the home to the septic tank, it goes through a sewer pipe. Also, the water is treated naturally by holding it in the tank long enough to separate the solids from the liquids. Inside of the tank, the wastewater forms three layers. The solids that are lighter than water float on top, while the heavier solids settle to the bottom of the tank. Between the two layers resides a middle layer of partially clarified wastewater.
A septic system is a self-contained, highly efficient underground wastewater treatment system. Since septic systems are known for treating and disposing of household water onsite, they are often more economical than a centralized sewer system in rural areas. In addition, in rural places like Franklin or Dearborn county, houses are spaced widely apart and lot sizes are typically larger. With septic systems, they are simple in design, which generally makes them less expensive to install and maintain. Also, by simply using this natural process to treat wastewater ultimately makes them less disruptive to the environment.
