Septic Sewer System

To remain effective, aerobic treatment unit components need regular maintenance. Poorly main­tained systems may not produce water as clean as desired.

For the best care for an aerobic treatment unit, follow the manufac­-turer's recommendations. Use these general guidelines as a basis for maintaining your system. They are divided into practices provided by a maintenance contractor, and those performed by the homeowner.

To select an aerobic unit, first determine the amount of daily waste­water flow from the home or small business. Then choose a Class I aerobic unit that can handle the amount of flow.

The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission maintains a list of Class I aerobic treatment units approved for sale in Texas.

The approved units are listed by company, model number, their rated treatment capacity and whether or not they require a trash tank in the treatment system.
