Fiberglass Tanks: Septic System Sympathies
I grew up in the country, far away from the luxury of city water that my friends so nonchalantly drank day in and day out. Don’t get me wrong, the country came with its own set of advantages over living in the city. I grew up next door to a farm, was able to have horses, chickens, ducks and every other kind of animal you can imagine, and lived far enough away from neighbors where our family parties would not get in trouble for being too loud.
Living in the country also made some things quite difficult however. Being in a rural area meant that we were often the last ones to get plowed after a bad snowstorm, our roads were not in the best shape to begin with, and going to the grocery store was seen as a chore since it was so far away. One other thing that was frustrating was having to drink from well water, and having to maintain and care for our own septic system.
Septic systems store and treat the sewage that comes from your home before it is released back into nature. Fiberglass is a great choice for many septic installers because it is a cheaper option than some other choices, and is able to withstand various unsanitary and trying conditions that septic tanks commonly encounter. The fiberglass tanks that are commonly used for septic tank purposes are relatively easy to install and lightweight. Their durability and longevity of quality performance is also an important factor.
People in large cities most likely have a town sewer system that they use, but for people like us in the country it is necessary to have one of your own. Fiberglass tanks make a good choice when considering what material to use for your septic tank.
