How Alternative Septic Systems Work 

An alternative septic system is any type of system other than the conventional type of septic tank that uses gravity to move effluent. There are several types of alternative systems that can be used, depending on the type of property and local regulations. At Macho Contracting, we are familiar with the types of alternative septic systems that are allowed in our area. 

An alternative septic system in Scottsdale must be designed and approved by a Professional Engineer who is registered to work in the on-site wastewater field in the state of Arizona. 

Where to Install Alternative Septic Systems 

When the time comes to install a septic system, you may find that a conventional septic tank with a leachfield is not suitable for your property. This can happen in forested areas, where there is bedrock, or the soil is not deep enough to install a conventional septic tank. 

In other cases, the property may be situated too close to a body of water that could be at risk of pollution from a conventional tank. In Arizona, alternative septic systems are often found in areas with mountainous or rough terrain. 

In the Valley, typical areas where these systems are found include on and around: 

  • Camelback Mountain 
  • Cave Creek 
  • Carefree 
  • Paradise Valley 
  • Desert Hills 
  • New River
  • Other Hillside Properties

We offer a free site visit to inspect your property and help you determine the type of septic system that is best suited to your soil and the features of your property.

Alternative Septic System (ATU) Repair & Maintenance 

The frequency of pumping and maintenance for an alternative septic system in Scottsdale is the same as with a conventional septic system. Most tanks will need to be pumped every three to five years. As with conventional systems, the frequency that pumping is needed depends on the size of the system, number of people in the home, and number of plumbing fixtures. 

There is one big difference between this type of system and a conventional septic tank. Alternative septic systems need monthly and bi-monthly maintenance. It is important to set up a maintenance program with a professional inspector to be sure the components of your system are working as they should. When you need repair or maintenance, Macho Contracting has NAWT Inspectors to provide repair and maintenance services.
