Residential vs. Commercial Septic Systems: What’s the Difference?

Think all septic tanks are created equal? Think again. It’s a mistake to assume that residential and commercial septic systems are pretty much the same and should, therefore, cost the same. At Discount Cesspool and Drain, we want you to understand the ways in which these two systems differ.

Let’s start with the basics: a septic system is a big underground cylindrical hole, sometimes covered, that collects liquids and solid waste that flow from a home or group of buildings. They are needed anywhere that there are no public sewage systems. You will need a commercial septic system if you own a commercial building in an area with no public sewer, much like you will need a residential septic system if you own a home without access to a sewer. Installing a septic system is an important step to ensure your restrooms and sewage disposal are taken care of.

A detached house typically offers adequate space for the sewage-disposal tank and the drainpipe field. A commercial septic system operates similarly to a residential one, just on a larger scale. Waste and wastewater will be flushed down the toilet, sink, bathtub, or shower, and travel through plumbing into the septic tank. This septic tank will be large enough to hold a large volume of solid waste. The liquid wastewater will be treated through the drain field and released back into the ground as clean groundwater.
