A mound septic tank is an alternate to conventional systems and is generally only used when the traditional equivalents are not an option. At Atlanta Septic Tank Pros, our partner technicians are consistently called upon to help homeowners and business owners manage their difficult septic requirements, including preparation, designing, and setting up on-site wastewater treatment centers when Nature does not wish to cooperate.
How a Mound Septic System is Different
For the many part, this type of system is really similar to a traditional one, however traditional units release the effluent (water from the tank) into an underground leach field. With this approach, the germs in the soil ends up cleansing the effluent prior to it reaches the water level. When a mound septic tank is in use, the effluent is pumped to a manufactured hill, which is normally constructed of gravel and sand, with a layer of soil on top.
