Septic tanks are stronger, easier to install, and less costly than old-fashioned concrete septic tanks, yet they still offer the quality construction and safety you expect. Manufactured from high-density polyethylene with UV inhibitors, these tanks use a horizontal flow designed for below ground installations. Septic tanks are designed and manufactured with rigorous quality controls. The trapezoidal deep-rib design and interior baffle system, found on some models, make these the industry choice.
The tank baffle system on 2 chamber tanks slows the flow of wastewater and directs it to the middle of the tank, so wastewater can separate from solids. An outlet baffle allows the partially treated liquids to flow out for further treatment. Advantages of the baffle design include added strength, versatility, and ease of installation.
The basics of Septic Tanks are explained in this video. Septic Tank designs are stronger than most polyethylene tanks to withstand the pressure of underground installation. When purchasing Septic Tanks, remember that some tanks will include interior plumbing and some will not.
