Septic systems are set up on the property of homes that do not have access to public sewer lines. For some people, they are viewed as less desirable than having the local government regulate and take care of sewage, but there are definitely some advantages, too.
We’ll provide a simple description of exactly how the septic system works.
A large concrete or steel tank is buried in the ground to collect wastewater from your home. The wastewater is then separated into three layers– the top later is the scum layer, the middle layer is the water, and at the bottom is the sludge layer, where the heavy materials sink and collect. Water is pushed out of the tank into something called the drain field. A drain field is another step in purifying the wastewater that comes from your home. The water is filtered through the drain field, and hazardous contaminants are removed before it re-enters the groundwater.
Septic systems are generally considered more environmentally healthy and do allow homeowners more control over their wastewater. Although you may fear the maintenance involved, you just have to remember that’s what we’re here to do for you!
