R&R Construction has decades of experience in the construction of aerobic treatment systems (ATS), often called an aerobic septic systems. The main reasons to use an aerobic septic system include poor soil condition typically high in clay or rock content, high groundwater, little availability for land or the need for high quality effluent.

Aerobic systems can have many benefits but also some notable disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage is that aerobic systems introduce a mechanical device, a blower, to introduce oxygen to the system. With all moving parts, there is the potential for failure. If you want your septic system to sustain for a longer period, you must hire skilled and experienced septic installers and technicians for the construction and maintenance. This is a small-scale sewage treatment system similar to a septic tank system, but instead of the anaerobic process used in septic tanks, it uses an aerobic process for digestion.

We design and construct aerobic septic systems that produce a high-quality secondary effluent that can be sterilized and used for irrigation. Aerobic septic systems produce cleaner treated effluent, which means groundwater pollution is less likely. If you live in an environment with a high water level, an aerobic septic system should be installed to prevent water contamination.

Advantages of Aerobic Septic Systems:

  • A greater level of effluent treatment
  • Applicable on poor soil type
  • Used for problematic lot spaces
  • The capability of extending drain field life span
  • Reduces drain field clogging
  • Excellent for water preservation

Disadvantages of Aerobic Septic Systems:

  • Requires power because it uses blowers & pumps
  • Installation cost is higher
  • Produces odor if not vented properly
  • These are substantially more complicated systems than traditional gravity-powered systems, and as such, their ongoing maintenance costs are high
  • If not maintained, it can cause contamination

Let’s Check out the treatment process in stages:


This stage can include having a septic tank installed up in front of the ATU or having a settling or trash tank built within the ATU. The solids will be separated from the waste water during this pre-treatment stage.

Aeration Chamber:

Using an air compressor or a blower, forced air is mixed with the waste water. This stage promotes the growth of aerobic bacteria, which aids in the breakdown of materials in wastewater.


An additional treatment tip is added to the effluent leaving the ATU at this step. This could include the use of chlorine or UV radiation.

Final Disposal:

The ATU’s effluent is released into a drain field, which could be a sand filter, an absorption field, or an evapotranspiration bed.
