There are several different types of septic systems such as Gravity Systems, Pressure Distribution Systems, Mound Systems, Aerobic Treatment Units (ATU), Sand Filter Systems, Drip Irrigation systems and even more. But in this article, we will be discussing Aeration Type Septic Systems.
An Aeration Type System is one that uses natural processes to treat waste water from your home. To be an Aeration type septic system, technically all that is required is to add an aerator to an existing system. That was how the first ones were. Today there is much better technology and engineers have developed what are commonly known as Aerobic Septic Systems.
