Conventional Septic System Design
The conventional septic system design will start with a quality soil test of septic on your soil.

A conventional septic system design will have an option of what material you want your septic tank made from. Choices include a plastic septic tank or a concrete septic tank, according to your budget. You'll also have a choice in which style of piping you'd like in your leach field—either traditional leach field piping or the advanced drain field chambers. With their engineered septic system design and the choices that you have, you'll know you've gotten the best septic field design available, all at an affordable cost.
Alternative Septic System Design
Wanting a more efficient septic system design? The aerobic septic system forces air into the waste, which enhances the bacterial breakdown and treatment of the waste. Air is forced in through either an air injector or a bubbler. This forced air method keeps the bacteria count high and in good health. The resulting effluent, or wastewater, that is discharged into the leach field is cleaner than a conventional septic system design and results in less stress on your leach field. Electricity needs to be calculated into the annual costs for this style as the blower motor that forces the air into the septic system requires an electrical hook-up and motor maintenance. In times where the soil has failed the perc test, a sand mound septic system may be designed. A mound of sand is either placed directly on top of the septic tank, or put in the location that the leach field would be normally installed. A pipe is installed through the center of the mound and connected to a motor that pushes the effluent to the top of the mound. Once the effluent is pumped through the pipe, it is filter down through the sand and leftover impurities are trapped in the sand mound.
To further treat your waste, you may opt to have an advanced wastewater treatment system engineered for you. This engineered septic system design is the most advanced of all styles. It removes all phosphorus and nitrogen from your waste and has been noted that 95% of all remaining suspended solids are also removed. If you don't have the room for a leach field, and a sand mound septic system is a design you don't want, this system can be further engineered to not need a leach field system at all. Although it relies heavily on electricity to keep treating, it is truly the most technologically advanced septic system on the market today.

I recently had my septic tank pumped out and it's full again. I'm only flushing toilet paper down the toilet, so I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. What can it be?
You're actually doing everything right if you're only flushing toilet paper down the drain. The problem lies in your septic tank not allowing wastewater to be discharged out of it and into the leach field. The problem may also be your leach field has a clog and is not processing the effluent like it should. Having a septic inspection will diagnose the issue and correct it.
If my septic system fails and it's not effecting anything in my home, why should I have it inspected or repaired?
Although you may not see any issues within your home now, you may as time goes on. The problem will only get worse if left untreated. Another reason is you don't want to contaminate the groundwater around your home. If the groundwater becomes contaminated, a host of health issues will arise with everyone around your home and an extensive environmental clean-up will take place. This environmental clean-up comes with a very large price tag and could include fines and/or jail time for ignoring a known environmental issue. You'll want to have an inspection and repair performed as soon as possible to prevent everything that could be bad from happening.
Can I open my septic tank to see if it's full?
Under no circumstances should you open the cover to your septic tank. There are several harmful bacteria and pathogens in your system that can cause you to pass out and fall into the septic tank. Only properly trained professionals should ever open a septic tank.
