Septic Tank FAQ
What is the purpose of my septic tank?
A septic tank is an essential piece of your water treatment and recycling system. The tank is where waste accumulates over time and gets broken down by bacterial action. This waste even gets liquefied due to natural bacterial decomposition. The remaining waste forms a layer of sludge at the bottom of the tank, which serves as a settling basin.
How does my septic tank work?
Septic tank systems consist of a tank, soil absorption field and drain field. The tank takes in any organic matter and separates liquid waste and solid matter from your wastewater. The liquid wastewater exits the tank into the drain field, while the solids are broken down. The soil naturally removes any harmful bacteria.
