Once the septic tank is attached to your household plumbing system; all future household waste flows through the pipes and is deposited into the septic tank. Once your waste enters the tank, the following process occurs:
– The waste enters the septic chamber where bacteria begin to break down the liquid waste.
– This waste is then divided into three parts – sludge, scum and partially treated liquid (water)
– Sludge, being a solid unable to leave the tank, settles on the bottom of the septic tank.
– Partially treated water is safely released into a drain field where the treated liquid waste (effluent) is released into the soil underground
