A public sewer or septic system is vital for the functionality of a certain area – may this be villages, subdivisions, or even as large as a city. Imagine if all the human excrete and wastes were just piled up into one area without proper governance. It, of course, conjures up a vile and hideous image. The foul odor would reek to the neighboring houses or even cities. Because well, it’s a conglomeration of all the human waste! The concept of commercial septic systems was created to prevent this.

As a result, almost everywhere you go to observes a proper public sewer system. One that does not let any wastewater or sewage rise back up to the surface. A commercial septic system must be competent and effective upon storing and holding all the sewage.

When You Need A Large-Capacity Septic System

A large-capacity septic system is typically needed in areas that do not utilize a local municipal sewer system. The only answer would be to have a commercial sewage treatment plant installed for the treatment of wastewater. A commercial sewage treatment plant may also be installed for cases in which the public main sewer cannot sustain or handle the capacity of wastes generated in a certain area.

Commercial from Residential

There is not much of a difference between a commercial septic system from a residential one. Both work in a similar way. However, whereas solid particles are eliminated from the wastewater in a residential septic tank under the natural process of bacterial breakdown, a large-scale one:

  • operates with a larger amount of wastewater
  • requires several kinds of cleaning equipment since it deals with a larger volume of sewage
  • several different types of contaminants are in the wastewater such as oils, fats, and grease based on the commercial property
  • must be frequently pumped and inspected more times than a residential septic tank due to the amount of sewage permeating through the groundwater is higher to avoid contamination

Properties that are considered commercial are typically ones that operate for business and finance purposes such as hotels, stores, malls, manufacturing sites. It may also be as simple as schools, laundromats, offices, etc. The properties are usually frequented by a large number of people.

Maintenance for Large-Scale Septic Systems


Just like anything, a public septic system must be properly maintained. Especially since more people would be affected by a malfunctioning septic system. Regular maintenance must be observed. Sludge buildup is more frequent for large-capacity septic tanks than in residential septic tanks. This is due to the higher volume of people using and benefitting from the same system. The risk of environmental contamination increases every time your regular maintenance is amiss.

The best tip for this is to coordinate with your trusted septic and sewer provider to schedule and regulate the frequency of your maintenance. With us at Greater Houston Septic Tank & Sewer Experts, our clients can schedule when they will have their next inspection or maintenance. This is to assure our customers will never miss a day of their maintenance.

Some tips to consider for the easier maintenance of your septic system are:

  • To keep a diagram of your public sewage treatment plant so your service provider will be able to find it easier to pinpoint the parts of your septic system that may need to be repaired, fixed, or maintained.
  • To estimate the volume of your expected effluent.
  • To employ a proper grease trap to avoid clogging and any foul odor.

Moreover, there are some things to avoid:

  • Fats, oils, and grease must not be disposed of down the drain to avoid any plumbing issues.
  • Any structural building must not be built over the drain field.
  • Any vehicle must be kept from parking or driving on the drain field.
  • Feminine hygiene products, diapers, wipes, and any solid waste must not be flushed down the toilet.
  • Trees must not be more than 10 feet away from the drain field. Roots may grow into the drain field which can cause septic issues.
  • Excess water must be managed and not flow down into the septic system.

If your septic system starts to emit a foul odor, a vivid green grass starts appearing anywhere near your system, or anything unusual, do not hesitate to your service provider. Likewise, there are two types to inspect the septic system. These are visual and full.

  • Visual inspection requires the flushing of toilets and letting the faucets run for a few minutes. This is conducted to see if there are any possible leakages as well as other issues.
  • Full inspection is conducted in a more meticulous way. This is conducted by checking the inside of the tank to determine the water level if there is any possible leakage or any overloading.
