The HOOT aerobic waste water treatment system can be considered a small municipal treatment plant which consists of a five-stage complete system for waster water treatment.
As can be seen from the diagram, this one-piece system offers many advantages for efficiency and treatment.
The HOOT aerobic waste water treatment system includes all the various components to form a complete control center for the operation of the system.
Savings will be realized in the long run while helping to protect Florida’s environment.
Advantages of Aerobic Systems
- Aerobic systems can often be paired with a smaller leaching field than a similar conventional septic system. This can substantially reduce the space required, which can be useful in lots where a large drainage field is unacceptable.
- Aerobic systems generally produce cleaner effluent (the wastewater that is returned to nature after processing). This is useful in environmentally delicate locations, areas with high water tables and similar sensitive areas.
- Aerobic bacteria typically break down household waste faster than anaerobic bacteria.
Disadvantages of Aerobic Systems
- Their initial cost is often several times that of a conventional septic system.
- Since these systems use electric pumps to circulate air through the sewage, the site must have electricity, and the owner must bear the ongoing cost of electric usage.
- These are substantially more complicated systems than traditional gravity-powered systems, and as such, their ongoing maintenance costs are higher.
- Not all municipalities allow aerobic septic systems, so be sure to check with your town or city before completing a purchase.
While aerobic septic systems are often used as replacements for existing failed gravity-powered septic systems they can be expensive to maintain and install.
