Septic Tanks: Eco-Friendly Products
Popular topic is the eco-friendly septic tank. The eco-friendly septic tank system is exceptional in processing greywater and everyday waste in an environmentally friendly manner. A septic system is one of the most popular sewage disposal systems. A typical septic system includes a septic tank and splitter box*. Septic tanks are typically made of concrete or fiberglass and are watertight. They are also equipped with a riser. The drain field is typically made of drain rock and perforated 5 inch pipe. Regular maintenance, combined with water conservation and good waste disposal habits, can maximize system efficiency and prolong the life span of most sewer systems.
It may not be difficult to clean an eco-septic tank system. You can simply switch from any harsh chemicals you used to deep clean your sink, toilet and other drains.
