Sewage Treatment System for Domestic Use


Home sewage treatment systems are an important part of maintaining a clean and safe environment for households. These systems treat and purify waste water from sinks, toilets, and other household fixtures before it is released back into the environment. However, proper design and sizing of these systems is crucial to ensure they function effectively and efficiently.

Factors to Consider

  • Household size: The number of people living in the house will determine the amount of waste water the system needs to handle.
  • Type of system: Different types of systems have different capabilities and requirements. For example, septic tanks have different capacity requirements than aerobic systems.
  • Soil conditions: The type of soil in the area will affect how well the system can function and how it should be designed.
  • Local regulations: Different states and municipalities have different regulations for home sewage treatment systems, so it’s important to check with the local authorities for any specific requirements.

Sizing the System

Once the above factors have been considered, the next step is to properly size the system. This is typically done by determining the flow rate of waste water that the system will need to handle. For example, a household of four people will generally require a larger system than a household of two people. The chosen system should be able to handle not only the average daily flow but also the peak flow, which occurs when all fixtures in the house are being used at the same time.


Designing and sizing a home sewage treatment system is a crucial step in ensuring it functions effectively and efficiently. Properly considering factors such as household size, type of system, soil conditions, and local regulations, as well as properly sizing the system, will all contribute to a successful installation. It’s always recommended to consult a professional for the proper design and sizing of a home sewage treatment system.
