Septic tanks serve an important role in a septic system, which stores and processes waste for a commercial or residential property. The tank is one of the first places that liquid and solid waste will go after you flush a toilet or use one of the drains in your home or office building. Septic tanks are large concrete boxes that are stored beneath the ground. During the installation process, your technician will choose a location on the property where the tank can be buried away from where vehicles park or drive. Too much weight that is constantly putting pressure on the tank could lead to cracks and other damage, so the location for installation is important. Your technician will also help determine the proper size for your septic tank, which depends on the size of the structure and estimated usage.
Septic tanks store the liquid and solid waste that comes from residential or commercial buildings, to which they are connected via the plumbing. Liquid waste moves to the top of the tank, where it is treated and can move out through the pipes on the opposite side. From there, the effluent liquid enters the drain field, which is a set of perforated pipes that provide an extra layer of filtration before the liquid goes back into the soil. The solid waste that stays behind must be pumped out regularly to prevent backup and other septic system issues.
