Some Basic Information about Septic Tanks A septic system is very much needed in any establishment or home and yet we generally do not have the knowledge on how this system works. Septic tanks are categorized as low in maintenance system and yet once something will go wrong of it, we will face a tricky and expensive situation. This is why a basic knowledge is important for us to know so we can avoid future problems with our septic tanks. To start with, let us have an idea on what is a septic system. A septic system is a sewage treatment system that is small in scale and this is used in places that are not connected to any government or private firm sewage operation. Mostly used in homes and farms in rural areas, these septic systems are created since it is too costly in these areas to connect to sewage mains that are too far away. The septic system operates by pumping first the waste water from facilities like bathrooms, kitchens and laundry into the effluent tanks, which in turn would process the waste, and then transfer it onto a septic drain field. That important part of the septic system that holds wastewater from 4000 to 7500 litres is the septic tank. The septic tank is usually buried under the ground and it has a connection to an inlet pipe on one end where sewage will flow in, and a septic drain on the other end where filtered wastewater will flow out. Today’s septic tanks usually have two chambers, and they are separated from each other by a wall with openings midway from the top and bottom of the tank.
Where To Start with Professionals and More
The first chamber of the effluent tank receives the wastewater that enters it, then the solids settle to the bottom of the tank while the scum floats to the top. The solids at the bottom usually will just decompose and float into the water. With the liquid passing from the first to the second chamber through the openings of the dividing wall, the solids and scums are left behind in the first chamber. It is in the second chamber where more settlement occurs because of the settlement process, and the liquid here is almost clear and is drained from the tank to the septic drain field of seepage field.
The Best Advice on Resources I’ve found
Septic drain fields can be described as trenches of perforated pipes and with some gravel or porous material. Layer of soil covers this field in order to avoid animals from contacting with wastewater. Through the perforated pipes, the wastewater on the other hand are dispersed and runs through the gravel, removing the contaminants and impurities. Generally, a septic system is powered via gravity condition, however, if topography is not conducive to this system, you can introduce a pump to the system.
