• What does my STEP system include?
    Connected Homes have a STEP system consisting of 3 tanks, a pump, a controller box with an alarm and light (located near the tanks), a line from the tanks/pump chamber, an inline back-flow preventer, and the shutoff valve that runs to the main sewer line in the street. Once your wastewater leaves the house, it flows into the first tank. There, solids “trash” separate and begin the decomposition process. The liquid component flows into the next the next tank and stays until the volume reaches a level and triggers your pump (in the third tank) to empty the contents into the main sewer line.
