If you are going to have an aerated septic tank I would provide for an alternative means of aeration before you install it. I found that the motors to the aerators, when installed inside the tank, only last about 2 years and they are expensive (and disgusting) to replace. I rigged up a large aquarium pump and placed it in my basement and ran tubing to the tank. It has been working great for 16 years now.
