How a Septic System is Installed | This Old House



The biological treatment septic system gets installed at the Westerly house.

It’s time for the sophisticated septic system to be installed at the Westerly house. The 1500 gallon primary and secondary tanks are buried into the ground. Installer Rick Pezza shows Richard Trethewey the steps, starting with a filtered pump that draws liquid in short cycles from the second tank to a treatment pod. In this pod, the dirty liquid drips down over hanging filter sheets filled with microorganisms that convert the ammonia into nitrogen. Through this biologic process, nitrogen gas gets released into the atmosphere, oxygenated water returns to the main tank, and the remaining treated liquid goes down through the sand filtered field.

This Old House | A Ranch Out Westerly (S41 E1) | FULL EPISODE

The new season kicks off with a ranch house in Westerly, RI. Tom and Kevin tour the house and admire the paneling. Richard tours the basement with Jeff. Jenn and Roger consider landscape options.

SUBSCRIBE to This Old House: http://bit.ly/SubscribeThisOldHouse.

The crew arrives at the new project in Westerly, Rhode Island – a sturdy 1940’s ranch that was built and occupied by the same family since the new homeowners, Scott and Shayla, acquired it. They give Kevin and Tommy a tour of the knotty pine paneled interior.

Builder Jeff Sweenor and his architectural design team have been working with Scott and Shayla on a transformation to take advantage of the distant view of the water and they show it to Kevin on the computer.

Norm travels to California to see where the quintessential ranch house evolved.

Jeff takes a tour with Richard to see the existing garage and basement. A renovation as big as this will call for a new and efficient heating and air system as well as an updated septic system.

Outside Jenn and Roger walk the property and discuss what can be done with the varying landscape.

Jeff invites a local Habitat for Humanity crew to come and salvage a host of building materials, including the knotty pine paneling, before the demo begins.
