Septic System Installation

With all of the different types of septic systems and septic tank service Jacksonville Fl, it can be overwhelming to decide which type of septic system you need at your property. Luckily, our experts specialize in septic systems and can help recommend a system perfect for your situation.

When dissecting a septic tank installation, a septic system is put underground and handles all of the wastewater and stores it on your property. Depending on the system, most require 3 main components:

  • Septic tank
  • Drain field / Leach field / Soil absorption field
  • Wastewater piping system

How The System Works

Simply put, the system directs all of the waste from the home into the septic tank. Depending on the complexity of the system, the tank usually is designed to separate the solid waste from the wastewater. Some systems simply just release the wastewater into the soil, while others may evaporate the water, or funnel the wastewater with gravity through sand or other product before releasing into the soil where the drain field is located. The drain field (also know as a leach field or soil absorption area) is specifically designed to help filter and remove contaminants from the wastewater.

Regardless of the type of system that is installed, it's important to maintain the septic system regularly perform septic inspections often so that the system is working properly and has a longer life expectancy. We will also be able prevent most septic system problems and catch problems early to perform septic tank repairs

as needed so that damages aren't costly. Consistent septic tank pumping is also a great way to maintain the system.

Different types of septic systems handle the waste differently and knowing which type of septic system to use is based on your needs, budget, and the layout of your home and property. The most popular septic systems that we install for homeowners are described below:

  • High quality septic tank
  • Wastewater system that is underground
  • Gravel filled drain field
  • A geofabric layer that protects the clean drain field from other contaminants

Aerobic Treatment Systems (ATS)

Aerobic Treatment System (ATS) use oxygen and infuse it with the wastewater, adding nutrients to it to treat the wastewater so that is is disinfected efficiently and safely. An ATS basically processes the waste more quickly by speeding up the treatment process. installing an ATS requires state licensed bi-annual inspections.

You can expect an aerobic treatment system to include:

  • Pre-treatment septic tank in front or part of the unit to separate solids from wastewater
  • Aeration chamber to mix oxygen with the wastewater for quicker waste digestions by aerobic bacteria
  • Disinfection area that disinfect the wastewater
  • Final treatment septic tank that disposes the wastewater into a drain field (by sand filter, soil absorption or evapotranspiration.

These septic systems are perfect for areas with high water tables or lack enough area for a proper sized drain field or property that has poor soil after a percolation test.

Performance Based Treatment Systems (PBTS)

Performance Based Treatment Systems are a specialized onsite sewage system that treats and disposes of wastewater designed by a professional engineer with a background in wastewater engineering.

Only a licensed professional in the state of Florida can install this type of system. This kind of system requires bi-annual inspections by the state as well.

Installing a PBTS can reduce the size of the drain filed by up to 70 percent. It also exceeds the typical performance of other traditional septic systems.

  • If the property has setbacks that are restrictive
  • If the property can't support the correct sewage flow from a traditional system
  • You want an advanced system that exceed the standards
  • You want a system that requires little to no maintenance
  • And many more reasons! Contact us today to learn more.

Benefits of a PBTS

These systems are simply to install and require low operation and maintenance costs. Because of the efficiency of the system, the size of the drain field can be much smaller or even non existent.

Customer Reviews

A DIamond in the rough

Chris Zanduzer at BVD in Jacksonville Florida did my septic system install earlier this year. He upgraded me to a mound type system with a new leach field with a lift pump, added in two clean-out connections, dismantled my old tank, and installed two brand new high-quality tanks with above ground risers at my request, as well as installed the alarm system and pump controller, all for less than the competitors wanted simply to repair my existing system.

I'll definitely be using them for my septic needs in the future.

Thank You

They did a great job repairing my septic system. Jennifer in the office was very helpful and patient with me as she walked me through a few troubleshooting steps. When all else failed she had field guys here within the hour. Mark and D, the two field guys, were very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable and had everything running smoothly within a few hours. Thank you BVD Septic!
