The majority of septic systems in the United States are Conventional
The Conventional Septic System has three main parts or sections
and problems associated with each.
1. The Main Line, which transports the sewage from the house to
the septic tank, often becomes clogged by grease and soap from clothes washers among other things.
2. The Septic Tank, which separates the solids from the liquids
and holds the solids for digestion, has two baffle tees which often become clogged as well. The bacteria in the tank, which
digest the solids, can also fail.
3. The Field Lines can become saturated from bio-mat growth and fail,
causing the tank to fill up and back up into the house. Solids from the tank can also enter the field lines when the tank
the Conventional System is difficult to Maintain & Service, with out opening the tank, since there is no access to
the lines, baffle tees, etc.
Kitchen Grease and Soap from Clothes Washing Machines among other sources
can clogg the lines and baffle tees.
The Conventional System is vulnerable to Bio-Mat Failure and one final
problem is that it can also back-up into your home!
