Septic Dewatering Equipment and its Impact on the Environment

Liquid waste and sludge can create major problems for the environment. As this material can be full of toxins, carcinogens, and dangerous bacteria, it must be treated and disposed of properly. Standard disposal methods are slow, and may have an effect on the environment. However, thanks to sludge and septic dewatering equipment from companies like Aqua-Zyme, the impact on the environment is limited. There are several methods that can be used to dispose of this waste. Read on to learn more.

Sewage Plant Dumping

A septic pumping service visits a home or business. The truck driver locates the septic tank and pumps all the sludge and solids from the tank, along with hundreds of gallons of liquid. He takes the waste to a municipal wastewater treatment plant. Once there, it is treated with chemicals and is pumped through an entire treatment process. Sewage plants require a great deal of energy to operate, and many plants use as much as 30-percent of their annual budgets to pay for this energy.

Drying Fields

In some areas, sludge waste is taken to special areas where it is dried and turned into waste that can be dumped or recycled into compost or fertilizer products. However, these operations must pick up and haul the waste and pay employees to run the operation, and the process is slow.

Septic Dewatering Equipment

The dewatering process can easily be done on-site. It uses flocculating chemicals to help turn the waste into a cake material. Aqua-Zyme can deliver and setup your complete dewatering system so there is no need to pay to have your waste hauled away. It uses less energy, and chemicals, than sewage plants. Also, because it is portable, it is faster and more effective than drying fields. To learn more about the benefits of septic dewatering equipment from Aqua-Zyme, call us at 979-245-5656 today!
