Tanks tanks tanks

Fibreglass Septic Tank Poly / Plastic Septic Tank (Example of a Premier Plastics Septic Tank shown to the left) Concrete Septic Tank (Example of a Alberta Wilbert concrete septic tank shown to the left) Steel Septic Tank .... so which one is "best"????? Well, that isn't necessarily easy to answer. It's like asking if an apple is better than an orange. Different tanks, different applications. But, to keep it simple, I am going to give you a quick breakdown of pro's and con's of each. Fibreglass and Poly (Plastic) Tanks PRO'S: -Light (compared to concrete), fairly easy to transport with small machinery. -Usually less expensive than a concrete tank -Custom shapes/sizes are easily constructed

Why choose Pressure Distribution?

Most people are familiar with the conventional gravity-type distribution system. This is where the underground treatment field is fed using gravity. Basically the septic tank "flushes" once it reaches a certain level and that dose works its way into the field through a series of sloped 4" drainline pipe. PRO's of a gravity system: relatively low maintenance, no energy use, no moving parts CON's of a gravity system: does not provide equal distribution across the entire treatment area; causes "hydraulic overloading" in the soils, which can shorten the life of your treatment field. In pressure distribution, every time the pump turns on, effluent is distributed over the entire area (space) s

Wastewater 104: Maintenance

This is part 4 of 4 in this blog post series. Please first review Wastewater 101, Wastewater 102 and Wastewater 103. Essentially you have 3 parts to getting a new (or upgraded system). 1. Design work 2. Installation 3. Maintenance This blog post discusses the Maintenance of your system. OK! So you have your system installed and everything is running well. Congratulations. You've spent alot of money on your system, so it's very important to maintain it to keep it trouble-free for a long time.

Wastewater 103: Installation Process

This is part 3 of 4 in this blog post series. Please first review Wastewater 101 and Wastewater 102. Essentially you have 3 parts to getting a new (or upgraded system). 1. Design work 2. Installation 3. Maintenance This blog post discusses the Installation work. Once you have your certified design package, it's time to get your installer to quote you the cost to install according to the design. If you don't already have an installer, let me know and I will forward you my list of Trusted Installers. Hopefully you already browsed Wastewater 101 blog post where I mention the importance of choosing a good installer. Unfortunately with septic installations, there are easy ways to cut corne

Wastewater 102: Design Process

This is part 2 of 4 in this blog post series. Please review Wastewater 101: What you need to know to get started before continuing here. Essentially you have 3 parts to getting a new (or upgraded system). 1. Design work 2. Installation 3. Maintenance This blog post discusses the Design work. The design work includes all the preliminary information gathering including the site evaluation, soil testing and lab work, county/district permitting and creation of the certified design . A site evaluation is performed Step 1: Fill out the online form by clicking here. You will need the basic information of your project, including house and lot info. Once I have received this, I can start a fi
