Septic systems and sewer lines both remove waste from homes. However, septic systems provide many benefits that don’t come with using the city sewer system.
For example, home septic systems allow you to save money. With a septic tank, you don’t have to pay for new piping that would connect to the public sewage system around your home, a typically higher cost than installing a septic tank. Plus, you won’t get charged on your water or property tax bill for using the sewer line.
Another benefit relates to the environment. Home septic systems allow for recycling wastewater. This process occurs through bacteria-fueled filtration in the soil when wastewater leaves the septic tank. This filtration is natural and doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals or other processes, all while allowing for recycled water to benefit your local area and wildlife.
Your home’s septic system can also last you a very long time. Home septic systems are designed to last upwards of 40 years, but can last even longer if the appropriate maintenance and care are implemented to keep your septic system working properly. Services such as regular septic inspections and septic tank cleaning can extend the life of your home septic system and help you prevent septic-related disasters.
