Septic Tank Options and Alternatives 'Reprinting August 2024'

Féidhlim Harty


This book lists conventional and alternative sewage treatment systems and outlines the pros and cons of each in a straightforward and non-technical way. Septic Tank Options and Alternatives covers The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved systems, plus innovative sustainable solutions, and also proposes alternatives where site and soil conditions are suboptimal.

This book is a must for anyone worried about how well their current system is working, for people undergoing inspections, or for those who know they need an upgrade but don’t know where to start. It is an invaluable guide for architects and engineers who are guiding clients through the options available, and gives treatment options that may be less costly, less energy intensive and more eco-friendly than an inspector may propose.
