They’re Good for the Environment
Septic tanks operate by filtering waste using soil, a natural process that is better for the environment than other methods. Wastewater is first filtered through the septic tank and then it travels to the drain field. Once the water leaves the septic tank, the soil works to filter out bacteria, making the water safe to reuse, once it’s been cleaned. This helps refill local water tables, which is good for the residents and the animals living in the area.
They Last a Long Time
When you make an investment in a septic tank, it’s nice to know that you can rely on it for many years to come. If you take good care of your tank, you can expect it to last for 20 to 40 years, longer in some cases.
