ATU systems are great alternatives to septic systems for many clients.
When you live on or own a property in a rural area of Plant City, Florida, you may be wondering what your options are for waste processing and storage. Rural areas are usually too far away from the city or county waste processing facilities, which means self-contained systems are necessary for these properties. Septic systems are very common, but not all properties can accommodate the various components of this type of system. A standard septic system contains plumbing that connects the building’s drains to the septic tank, which is a large concrete box, as well as additional pipes leading to the drain field. Some systems also have grease traps, which can require additional space. If you don’t have the space or the property layout for a septic system, our team at Averett Septic Tank Co Inc. can help. We offer installation and maintenance of ATU systems, which are functional alternatives to septic systems.
An ATU, or aerobic treatment unit, is a system that processes and stores liquid and solid waste but doesn’t need a drain field. Instead, ATU systems pump oxygen into the tank to treat the liquid waste so it can go back into the soil. Many of our customers connect their drip irrigation systems to the ATU system to provide hydration to the landscaping on the property. By using treated wastewater, you can save money on watering while keeping your plants and trees looking lush and healthy.
