Wastewater is usually tied to a sanitary sewer system or water runoff. You need the right products to be able to withstand water runoff and sewer waste. Most of the time, concrete is the material of choice. These products can be referred to "Precast Components" because they are made in large concrete casts. They are strong, built to last for a very long time and they must meet all of the state and local rules and regulations for use in cities and counties.
Precast Concrete Manholes
Precast concrete manholes are usually access ways to some kind of sanitary sewer system. They are usually a part of a larger network of pipes that transports sewage to a wastewater treatment plant. If properly installed, these precast concrete manholes provide a watertight high performance solution as compared to the old "Mix and Pour" method of ole days!
Sewage Treatment System
There are 5 parts to a common sewage treatment system.
- The Home plumbing system.
- The pipeline from the house to the septic holding tank.
- The septic tank itself.
- The septic tank outlet pipe.
- The soil treatment unit.
Wastewater from the home enters the septic system. The septic system is designed to separate solids from the liquids. Solids stay in the septic tank, while the liquids flows into the final soil migration pipes. The septic tank itself acts like a "bio breakdown container". In the tank itself, microorganisms break down all of the organic solids into liquids, gases and the remaining solids are called "sludge". Gases and liquids are disposed of through various means, while the remaining "sludge" accumulates and one day must be pumped out. Got questions? Contact us today!
