The year 2023 has arrived, bringing with it new opportunities, technologies, and innovations for your septic system to continue operating smoothly. There are a few trends that we’ve seen in the industry going into this year that are important for homeowners to know.
One trend that’s becoming more popular is the use of eco-friendly septic systems. These systems use natural processes to treat and purify wastewater, and they’re also made with sustainable materials. It’s becoming more important for homeowners to consider the impact of their septic systems on the environment.
Another trend is the use of technology to monitor and maintain septic systems. Smart septic systems are becoming more common, and they use sensors, internet connectivity, and software to provide real-time data on the health and performance of your septic system.
One newer type of septic system is the aerobic treatment unit (ATU) or advanced treatment system (ATS). These systems can treat wastewater to a higher level than traditional septic systems, and can remove up to 90% of pollutants. This makes it suitable for discharge into surface waters, and it’s particularly beneficial for homeowners in areas with stricter regulations on septic systems.
Finally, you may want to keep an eye on the use of alternative materials for septic tanks. In addition to traditional materials such as concrete and fiberglass, many homeowners are now choosing plastic septic tanks. Plastic tanks are resistant to corrosion and rust, and they’re also less prone to cracking. This makes them a more durable and long-lasting option.
Knowing the latest trends can keep your home running smoothly and help you avoid any problems in the future.
