How does a septic system work?
A septic system consists of a tank and drain fields. Pipes leading from your home or business plumbing system drain into the septic tank. The tank is where the first step of treatment begins. Heavy solids settle to the bottom of the tank, this eventually creates a layer of sludge in your tank. Lighter solids, grease, and oils float to the top and form a thin layer – the more of these items that come through the drains, the thicker this layer becomes. Liquids, now in the middle of the tank (effluents) glow into gravel filled trenches in the drain field where it is distributed into the surrounding ground. The soil helps to filter and remove harmful substances, including bacteria and toxins. Baffles or outlet tees located in the tank are designed to prevent the sludge and scum from flowing into the drain field. If the tank is not serviced regularly, the system will eventually backup or clog. If left long enough, this will cause your septic system to fail.
