Septic System Services
CONSTRUCTION / CONTRACTOR / REPAIR / SERVICE
Effluent flows directly from your household plumbing into a watertight, underground, two compartment septic tank (holding tank). Solid waste settles into a sludge layer on the bottom and fats float to the top of the first compartment. Between these two scum layers is a zone of clarified liquid effluent which is internally piped to the second compartment of the septic tank for additional settling. As incoming sewage from the house fills first compartment, clarified liquids are forced to leave the second chamber of the septic tank and flow out to the leach field/line or seepage pit (dispersal system). The typical leach field is a series of punctured pipes or rock filled trenches where effluent is further treated as it slowly percolates through the soil. A seepage pit is a circular, deeper, larger hole filled with rock for disposing of wastewater.
Septic tanks allow for safe disposal of wastewater and are widely popular in areas that are far from the main sewage networks.
