You use a lot of water throughout your day to wash surfaces, clean your body, and cook food. When you’re done with that water, it’s your septic system’s job to carry it away from your living spaces so that it can’t contaminate your clean water. Wastewater from all over your home is funneled through your main drainage pipe into your septic tank, which separates liquids from solids and grease before dispersing those liquids through your drain field.
Most of the time, this essential system works on its own, without any need for action on your part. However, sometimes your septic system requires professional intervention. When solids and sludge build up in your tank, it needs to be pumped, and when your tank or drainage pipe is cracked or broken, they need to be fixed. When that happens, it’s important to address issues immediately, otherwise, wastewater has no exit route from your home.
How Does a Septic System Work
A septic tank is an underground wastewater treatment system used in areas without centralized sewer systems. It collects wastewater from a building and separates it into layers. Solid waste settles at the bottom as sludge, while oils and scum float to the top. Bacteria break down the waste in the absence of oxygen.
The liquid portion, called effluent, moves to a second chamber and then enters a drain field where it percolates through the soil for further treatment. Treated effluent eventually joins groundwater or surface water. Regular maintenance and proper usage are essential for a septic tank's effectiveness.
