Lower your environmental impact with a nitrogen-reducing septic system.
Your septic system is designed to eliminate bacteria and other harmful elements in wastewater before dispersing it back into the environment. However, one element traditional systems could be better at handling is nitrogen. Nitrogen is a naturally occurring nutrient in wastewater, and recent studies have shown that standard septic systems contribute to increased nitrogen levels that harm the environment.
Too much nitrogen can cause algae blooms that devastate the surrounding ecosystems and can be toxic to humans, plants, and animals. Residents of Brandon, Florida can help reduce the impact of nitrogen damage on the environment by investing in a nitrogen-reducing septic system.
A nitrogen-reducing septic system helps improve the quality of nearby bodies of water by working to lower the amount of nitrogen released into the environment from wastewater. They do everything a standard septic system would, but with an added step to specifically treat nitrogen levels. For example, some systems encourage the presence of certain bacteria that break down nitrogen. Others use specialized filters to capture nitrogen before the wastewater is returned to the soil.
In addition to being more environmentally friendly than many other septic system options, nitrogen-reducing septic systems are also excellent options for sites with limited space. They are also very energy-efficient, and they tend to be easier to install and maintain than many traditional systems.
