Amazing Solar Powered Homes

One of the first things that I did when I moved into my new home was start looking into my options for solar power. I’m a big believer in reducing dependence on natural resources that are unsustainable, and one of the best ways to do that is by using natural resources that are sustainable, like sunlight. I was thrilled to have my own home that I could customize with solar power. I found that there were all kinds of options for solar power besides those big clunky solar panels. I eventually settled on solar shingles for my roof, and I’m looking into solar powered windows, too. I started this blog to share more information about solar trends with people who are as interested in sustainable energy as I am. I hope to help you understand how contractors can help with these large projects!

3 Septic Systems To Contain Waste And Prevent Contamination Of Protected Lands

There are many areas where a septic system is the main form of waste treatment. In areas with protected forest lands or bodies of water, the contaminants from septic systems can be a problem. This is why the design of a completely contained septic system may be needed if you have a home near protected lands. Here are some of the solutions that you may want to consider for a contained septic system for your home:

1. Mound Systems With Liners To Completely Contain Affluent

Mound systems can have liners that help protect them and keep the affluent from leaving the Drainage field. This is ideal for containing waste and keeping it out of the environment. If you have a limited amount of space, the mound system can be hidden in a raised container garden made with retaining walls and lined to make the mound less noticeable and an attractive addition to your landscaping design.

2. Using A Designed Wetland Drain Field To Contain Septic Waste

Wetlands can be another option that you may want to consider for your septic system drainage. These systems are designed to filter waste water with plants and wildlife. In sensitive ecosystems, the wetland design can include a liner to keep drainage out of the environment and contains in the specialized system. They can also be used to provide a place for native wildlife and plants to improve environmental conditions. These systems have the benefit of using the plants to filter waste and protect the environment from waste from your septic tank.

3. Aerobic Septic Systems For A Completely Self Contained System

Aerobic systems are one of the more common types of systems that are used when waste contamination is a concern. These systems use a combination of several tanks and bacteria to break down waste like a miniature treatment plant. There are also aerobic septic systems that are completely self-contained and can even give you water that can be reused for things like irrigation or flushing toilets in your home. This type of system can be used where a drain field is not a practical solution for your septic system.

These are some of the options that you may want to consider for a contained septic system for your home if you live near lands where contamination is a concern. If environmental contamination around your home is a concern, contact a septic tank service such as Moon Septic to help with some of these improvements for your septic system.
