What is a septic tank system?
Septic tank systems are underground wastewater treatment structures, often used in rural areas that don’t have centralized sewer systems. They use technology and nature to treat wastewater from household plumbing produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry.
A typical septic system consists of a septic tank, drain field, or soil absorption field.
The septic tank digests organic matter and separates floatable matter and solids from the wastewater. Soil-based systems discharge the liquid (effluent) from the septic tank into a series of perforated pipes buried in a leach field, chambers, or other special units designed to release the effluent into the soil slowly.
Alternative systems use pumps or gravity to help septic tank effluent trickle through sand, organic matter (e.g., peat and sawdust), constructed wetlands, or other media to remove or neutralize pollutants like disease-causing pathogens, nitrogen, phosphorus, and other contaminants. Some alternative systems are designed to evaporate wastewater or disinfect it before it is discharged into the soil.
When properly maintained, septic systems are more environmentally friendly. Septic tanks allow you to live further away from cities/towns. Septic tanks can last up to 40 years. Having a septic tank can save money on property taxes since your property isn’t hooked up to municipal sewer.
How do you know when you need septic tank service?
A foul odor isn’t always the first sign of issues with your septic tank. You should call for assistance if you see wastewater backing up into your drain, if you notice bright green, spongy grass on the drain field if there is water pooling around your system or in your basement, and if there’s a bad odor around your tank and drain field.
