Aerobic Waste Water System
An Aerobic Waste Water System is a system that contains aerobic bacteria, which is completely different than septic bacteria.
Aerobic bacteria requires constant air movement to exist and stay alive. Unlike septic bacteria, it is a veracious eater and eats bacteria very quickly. It eats up disease causing pathogens more rapidly than a septic system. Therefore, causing no odor.
The water should stay in the system for 24 hours, for correct treatment of the waste. It then goes through a chlorinator and into a pump tank. It is dispersed from the pump tank, via sprinkler heads and a surface irrigation system, onto the yard using specially marked sprinkler heads.
Most Aerobic Systems are constructed of three tanks: a holding tank for solids, a treatment tank and a pump tank for the chlorinated water. Aerobic systems are designed according to the size of the home and the size of the family to use the system at the time of construction.
In situations where a family expects to entertain multiple persons, in the future at one time, it is suggested to over build the system accordingly. Overloading the system with excessive use will cause it to malfunction.
