Septic tank system is like the mini version of a waste treatment plant. Septic tank systems are more commonly present in rural areas where the proper municipal sewer systems are not present.
There are various kinds of septic systems used around in the country. However, the most commonly used one is the septic tank/absorption field system. In the septic tank type of system, waste matter leaves the house via a drain and travels to the septic tank, which is concealed underground. The waste material stays in the tank for the time until the solids settle out as sludge and the grease and oils float to the top surface as scum. There are outlets designed specially to hold back sludge in the tank, while the clear middle part known as effluents enter the drain field. There are microbes present in the soil that absorb and remove most adulterants from wastewater before it can reach the groundwater. To ensure that the tank doesn’t overflow it is best to use a float switch or level sensor. This way you’re warned of problems before it becomes too serious.
As it is understood that septic tank systems are tasked to channel biodegradable wastes to a place where they can break down naturally, the installation of this system requires a professional hand. If one happens to take, the do-it-yourself way it might save money, but if it backfires then a re-doing the work would lead to more expenses.
