One thing we have discovered from our years of septic system installation service is that most people are very nervous about getting a septic tank. Much of this is mostly because the average person does not fully understand how a septic tank works, and as such, fears it to be a high maintenance investment. To debunk this misconception, we figure a quick rundown on the inner workings of a septic tank is necessary. After all, if you are going to have a septic tank installed on your property, it is good that you have an understanding of what you are getting into before taking the plunge.
What is a Septic Tank?
A septic tank is a wastewater treatment structure that is installed deep in the ground. It is a big waste containment unit made of plastic, concrete, or metal. A large pipe on one side of the tank connects it to the house’s drainage area, where it collects wastewater from sinks, bathrooms, laundry areas, and toilets. The wastewater then flows into the septic tank where it settles.
So, how do septic tanks work? Well, the process is a lot simpler than you think. The septic tank design supports the growth of bacteria that break down wastewater into several layers. Sludge (semi-solid waste) settles at the bottom, oil and greasy substances (scum) float to the top while liquid part of the wastewater (effluent) remains at the center. One thing to note is that a septic tank is a two-chamber structure. The inlet pipe, which connects to the house, sits on one side, while the outlet-perforated pipes are on the other end of the tank.
The purpose of this design is to keep wastewater flowing in from mixing with the effluent flowing out. Once effluent drains into a drain field, microbes in the soil combined with bugs and exposure to UV light breaks down available bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances, leaving behind treated water. The water then disperses into the soil, where it ends up as part of the water table. With time, some of the waste matter left in the tank breaks down through anaerobic processes. What is left is eventually pumped out through methods referred to as septic tank pumping and cleaning.
