The Importance of The Septic System

Your septic system is a crucial part of processing waste generated from your residence and purifying waste water so it can enter the groundwater supply after it has been filtered and treated appropriately.

Stages of Waste Treatment:

Step 1

Septic Tank

Waste first enters the septic tank where it is separated into three distinct layers:
Scum - greases, fats, and oils that float on the top
Effluent - the wastewater layer in the middle
Sludge - solids that settle at the bottom of the tank

Step 2


Once effluent moves out of the tank, it enters the drainfield, which is a series of large perforated pipes that releases water into the soil below.

Step 3


The soil must be tested adequately before a septic system is built on the property. Once wastewater hits the ground, it is filtered naturally through the soil as it makes its way deeper and deeper until it finally hits the groundwater supply completely purified. Many things can go wrong at any stage if the septic system is not properly pumped and maintained at regular intervals. A pumping service should be sought out at least every 3-5 years, and sometimes sooner depending on the tank’s capacity and volume of waste produced.
