Over 25% of Iowa households use septic systems to safely treat their wastewater on-site. Septic systems consist of several main components: the plumbing, septic tank, and soil treatment area.
At its essence, the plumbing collects wastewater and delivers it to the septic system. The septic tank (sometimes multiple tanks), receives waste water and separates solids from liquids. While the solid waste sinks down and is broken down by billions of bacteria, the liquid waste is treated and filtered through the soil treatment area where harmful pathogens are eliminated by naturally occurring bacteria.
Since July of 2009, all buildings sold in Iowa with a septic system must have an inspection by a state certified inspector prior to sale and/or deed transfer. Brown has state certified inspectors on staff, ready to assist you in this mandatory inspection. Learn more..
