The sand septic system works like a conventional septic system. Once the water is treated in the septic tank, the effluent is distributed evenly throughout the sand bed. The effluent seeps down into the gravel and sand. Here, the effluent is treated further by microbes and sand. Microbes in the soil absorb some of the nutrients present in the wastewater and the sand filters out the solids. The treated water is of better quality and it can be reused and recycled.

Benefits of Septic Sand Systems

  • They work well in areas with less soil, in rocky areas, and in areas where conventional systems cannot.
  • The system can be constructed above or below the ground.
  • It can remove nitrogen effectively and treat wastewater efficiently as the microbes present in the sand are rich in oxygen.
  • The system is sustainable and eco-friendly as the treated wastewater is of better quality, which reduces contamination risk.
  • These systems are low maintenance as the sand bed filters can last for 2-5 years.
  • As the treated wastewater is of better quality, it can be used for irrigation.

Maintenance of Septic Sand Systems

Regular maintenance of the drain field and sand filters are important for the efficient functioning of the system. The sand bed filters should be checked annually by an experienced wastewater technician. The septic tank needs to be pumped out every 4 years or more often if needed.

It is also important to conserve water and use non-toxic chemicals to help the system perform better. For all your septic system needs, contact us today.
