How Does a Septic Tank Work? What Are the Different Components?

Your septic tank holds solid waste and wastewater from your plumbing system. It’s separated into solid and liquid components before the liquid (known as effluent) is pumped out of the septic system. With time, the solid waste builds up inside the tank, which has to be pumped out.

Regularly scheduled pumping is an essential service for properties with septic systems. If the tank isn’t pumped, it could lead to backflow contamination and even premature system failures. Proper septic tank pumping ensures that the tank is never overfilled, preventing costly repairs and prolonging the life span of the septic system.

The septic system should also be periodically evaluated. We can inspect your septic tank, drain field and other parts of the system to make sure everything is in decent shape. Preventive inspections enable us to resolve any problems found before they can cause trouble.

Your Septic System Consists of Several Components

Inlet and outlet pipes: The inlet pipes move wastewater out of the main plumbing system and into the septic tank. The outlet piping, meanwhile, should send the effluent out of the tank and into the drain field.

Baffles: Partitions placed in the tank gradually separate solid waste from the liquid effluent. Without the baffles, the waste would be much more difficult to remove.

Septic tank: A well-designed septic tank is built out of concrete, fiberglass or plastic. They should be built to ensure solid waste settles at the bottom of the tank while the liquid effluent flows out and into the drain field.

Drain field: A septic system requires a drain field, or a network of pipes with openings, allowing the liquid effluent to seep into the soil. The drain field is typically located underground several feet from the tank.

Soil: The surrounding soil is also part of a septic system by further treating and purifying liquid effluent as it exits the drain field piping. Bacteria in the soil decompose other contaminants in the effluent before it reaches the groundwater, keeping it safe from pollution.
