The systems that keep residential and commercial spaces running differ in many areas. Residential and commercial septic systems are no exception. Although they perform the same basic function of taking care of waste, residential and commercial septic systems have a few key differences between them.
One obvious difference is the size. Commercial septic systems are designed to accommodate for greater usage due to their typically larger spaces and more people using them, and they are therefore usually larger than residential septic systems. Because of this larger size, commercial septic systems may have different layouts, too.
Another difference is the maintenance required to maintain the different septic systems. Residential and commercial septic systems have different regulations in place that can affect what maintenance needs to be performed and how often this maintenance needs to take place.
How the waste is handled is another key difference between the two different types of septic systems. For example, pre-treatment might be necessary for the waste in commercial septic systems, in large part due to how much wastewater flows through the septic system in comparison to the relatively smaller amount of wastewater that flows through residential septic systems.
