Superior Septic Pros in West Virginia

Septic waste systems are likely, one of the least acknowledged technological innovations used daily but rarely considered. And if you were to consider that without them, our natural environment in West Virginia would be much more polluted with human waste and certainly unpleasant. Long before there were septic systems waste simply drained into our local West Virginia water supply.

Outhouses were the only option at the time, with the majority positioned over a large pit where the waste collects. Once the hole under the outhouse is full, is moved over top if a newly dug pit. Septic systems offer huge advantages over this approach.

The First Septic System The invention of the septic system can be credited to a Frenchman by the name of Jean Mouras. He built a simplistic concrete system in 1860, in the yard of his home in France. With clay pipes, Mouras was able to move the waste from the indoor bathroom toilet to the tank in the yard. When 10 years had passed, it was opened and discovered that only liquid remained. Almost no solid material remained. After discussing his findings he patented his septic system in 1881. By 1883, septic systems had made their way to the US and after WWll the innovation took off.

Current Considerations in West Virginia

At the time, there were almost no restraints with respect to how septic waste systems were built or maintained. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the governments and municipalities started to address and enact legislation in West Virginia ensuring at least minimum standards were met.

Even though septic systems were a major advancement of the era, many are still worried about the environmental impact of some old systems in West Virginia. When septic systems fail, the result can be unhealthy waste leaching into local environs, including town water and food supplies. This is a serious and real possibility, that has resulted in an abundance of by-laws and regulations regarding the qualified installation and maintenance of septic systems by local governing bodies. Interestingly, septic only causes problems when it's not working efficiently. In the majority of cases, septic system failure are due to lack of or improper maintenance.
