You can only think of building a septic tank if you are living far away from town. This can be because, a public sewer line will be far away from your property. If you hire the right contractors to build a septic tank in your compound, you will have several reasons to smile. The following are the advantages of the septic tank and its system to you and the environment.
If you compare septic tanks to sewer lines, you will deduce that septic tanks are very friendly to the environment. This can be attributed to the occasional leakages of sewer lines, which results to exposure of raw sewage to the environment.This is likely to result into adverse effects to both the humans and the environment at large. These effects include disease outbreaks like cholera and other water-borne diseases. The sewage may as well contaminate animal and human food, not forgetting the contamination of atmospheric air. You can avoid these and many other problems if you choose to build your own septic tank to dispose your wastes.
Another benefit of this septic tank is that, it is cheaper to install and manage, when you compare it to the public sewer lines. This is because, the only time you will be required to spend a lot of money, is when you will be building the septic tank for the first time. After building the septic tank, the only time you will spend some little money is when doing some repairs to the tank. When you are connected to a public sewer line, you will be required to pay some monthly or annual fees for as long you are connected. As a result, you will end up spending a lot of money in the payment of such bills. Since it will take a minimum of three years before you can pump out the waste in the septic tank, it will save you a lot of money in the name of maintenance costs. If you can manage and clean the tank regularly, then it will undoubtedly serve you for a very long time, hence giving you value for the money you invested on it. Provided you are putting the septic tank into the right use, it can be able to serve you for forty or more years.
You can also treat and manage your waste disposals on-site if you have a modern septic tank. Since the septic tanks have systems that handle water filtration’s, there will be no need for you to wait for your sewage to be treated at the public ser lines. You can quickly call septic plumbers to look at the tank if you notice faults with it. It will be easy for them to identify the problem and fix it.
