Know The Signs!
How Septic Systems Work
There are a number of different septic systems, each with its own design.
It consists of these main parts: the septic tank, distribution box and
the drain field. All water from your home goes through a single pipe below
the ground that flows to the septic tank. The septic tank is a buried,
water-tight container usually made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene.
Its job is to hold the wastewater long enough to allow solids to settle
down to the bottom forming sludge, while the oil and grease float to the
top as scum. As wastewater enters the septic tank, an equal amount will
exit the tank from the other side. As wastewater exits the tank it travels
to the distribution box then distributes evenly into the drain field.
Incoming water is then absorbed through the soil where it is cleaned by
The Importance of Maintenance
When a septic tank system is not maintained solids in the tank will build
up and flow into the drainfield. This will clog the soils, prevent water
from absorbing and clog up the system.
Regular maintenance fees every 3 to 5 years isn’t all that expensive,
but you could easily spend tens of thousands to dig up and replace a septic
system that has totally failed. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure. Systems do vary from another due to tank size,
wastewater volume being produced, and system design, and soil, but all
require maintenance. The bottom line is to prevent solids from being discharged
beyond the septic tank into the remaining components of the system.
