Types of Septic Systems
There are several different types of septic systems in use today. The characteristics of your property determined what type of septic system was installed. The soil conditions; such as absorption rate, type of soil and how much soil is present, were a major factor in deciding what type of system was installed. In addition, the water table level and the grade elevations of the property also played a role in that decision. Knowing what type of septic system you have, as well as it’s location is an important part in your responsibility to keep the septic system running efficiently and effectively. Following the “Septic Dos & Don’ts and performing the “Maintenance and Pumping” at the appropriate intervals, will reduce the chances of septic system failure which can be very costly.
The content on this page will be better understood if you are familiar with the operation of a basic septic system. If you haven’t done so, please visit our “Septic Systems” page and take a couple of minutes to familiarize yourself with the 3 main components of a basic septic system.
A good site to visit for several educational videos regarding septic systems can be found on Washington State’s Department of Health On Site Sewage Systems Home Owner Education Page. The Full video course is 5 chapters and runs 19:02 minutes. You can watch the individual chapters by themselves which range from 2:29 to 6:57 minutes in length. Chapter 3 – Types of Septic Systems is 6:57 minutes and goes over most of the systems described on this page.
