When sewer systems are not an option for your home or property, a septic system is usually the next best option. However, there is another choice. Some people elect to use an ATU system instead of a septic system. This article will help you know more about what an ATU system is, how it differs from a traditional septic system, and what you should do for proper ATU maintenance if you have one.
“ATU” stands for aerobic treatment unit. It works by adding oxygen into your wastewater, which helps break down matter, reduce bacteria and transform nutrients in your system. They reduce solid waste and bacteria faster than other septic systems and are designed to be a cleaner and more energy efficient solution. One of the greatest advantages of an ATU system is that it’s considered to be better for the environment. They also take up less space than a traditional septic system.
