Different Types of Waste Water Treatment

Have we ever given thought about what happens to all the water that we use in our day to day life? If your property is not well connected to the main drainage system, then it’s time for you to look for alternatives to take care of the wastewater from your house or your commercial property. There are number of options that one can opt for:

Septic Tanks: The residential septic system consists of 2 or 3 chambers which are used to separate the liquid and solid waste. The sewage is held in the septic tank for long enough which allows the sludge formation of the solids at the tank’s bottom. Using the anaerobic digestion, the sludge is partly broken down and the left out liquid is passed to the soak away system through the inlet. The liquid is then dispersed into the drainage trench where nutrients, organic materials and pathogens gets dispersed in the gravel and removed. The remaining of the tank needs to be cleaned on a regular basis.

Cesspits and cesspools: A cesspool is nothing but a holding tank that stores the wastewater from your house and holds it until it is removed. It doesn’t treat the wastewater but just holds it for some time which requires frequent emptying of the tank. The cesspits can be thought as a temporary solution to your waste problem. The biggest disadvantage of this technique is the size of the tank that you need to install.

Sewage Treatment Plants: It is one of the best techniques of waste water treatment. In sewage treatment, the waste is dumped in the plant for treatment that can be discharged to groundwater. A settlement chamber, biological realm and the final clarification are the primary components of a sewage system. The components can be as separate units or an enclosed one.

The type of system can be categorized under multiple categories, one having a settlement chamber and one with no such chamber. For systems having a chamber, you need to periodically clear the solid wastes from the tank. While in the systems with no primary chamber, the solid waste is mixed with several bacteria in aeration chamber that allows it to degrade. With the options available, you can go for one that suits your budget and meets all your requirements. Now you can treat the wastewater with ease and have a clean surrounding.
