How Your Septic System Works

Septic tanks are underground collecting tanks where plumbing waste may decompose. The purpose of conventional septic tanks, which are commonly composed of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene, is to store wastewater for a period of time to allow particles to sink to the bottom. The residual sludge in the tank is broken down by bacteria once the wastewater has sunk to the bottom, and the leftover liquid wastewater is then pumped into the drain field.
