Septic Systems

Septic STEP, Other Systems and Some Tennessee Things You May Want to Know.

(one of my external YouTube videos)

This video is commentary and embellishment to the two subject videos by others I found helpful on YouTube. It does refer to the two videos below but since they are unaffiliated and used under the YouTube licensing agreement, I cannot always be assured the fellow YouTube Creators will always have them available. My video should give you some better understanding of what you might expect out of Middle Tennessee. Nothing in my video is pretending to be "design" but rather simple illustration to help someone unfamiliar with a septic system.

Septics 101 A Guide to Septic System Maintenance

(an unaffiliated external YouTube video from Washington State Department of Health)

This video was produced for Washington State and not Tennessee. We very much differ but it does provide a broad base of septic information. In Tennessee, it has been my experience that the regulating authority tends to only approve a conventional or gravity system. This is a personal observation, and staffing and ideology can change the reality without notice. So if you are looking at unimproved farmland – and a gravity system is not possible, you will want to do your own research on the cost and likelihood of approval prior to writing a offer.

Aerobic Septic Systems - Did You Know?

(an unaffiliated external YouTube video from Your New House)

This video does a good job of showing a type of septic system that some states use and possibly mandate under some circumstances. I cannot say for sure as I live in Tennessee. It is an aerated system. It is, in fact, just about a mini sewage treatment plan – but for a single home. But unlike the gravity systems, the State of Tennessee seems to favor, they are fairly complex and require more maintenance as you might expect. Simply put, the more stages and parts, the more likely you will have something fail. A chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link. Electrical surges can kill controllers, pumps and float-switches can leak and fail, bubble stones (aerators/diffusers) clog, and air pumps (are often diaphragm pumps) fail.
