Where does the waste go?
A majority of tanks rely on gravity in order to make things work. Wastewater flows into the tank, then it is buried in the ground outside of your home. After, water in turn is carried from the tank to a drainage field using sloped pipes.
How A Tank Works?
When wastewater enters your septic tank, it naturally divides into three parts:
Septic Tank Pumping
The sludge at your tank’s bottom requires periodic septic cleaning or pumping. Even the best bacteria can’t fully break down all organic material, meaning it will start to build up and take more of the tank’s space. If there’s not enough room for water, the sludge will start to back up into leach field, your home’s pipes or may cause a tank failure.
Homeowners can clean out their septic tanks, but you will need to store the sludge for transport and safely dispose of it. Professional septic cleaners come with a tank truck that hooks up to your septic system and removes its contents, then transports it all safely off your property.
