How a Septic System Works
A basic septic system is relatively simple. It consists of three key parts: A septic tank, a drain field and a distribution box that connects the two.
When waste leaves your home, the sewage pipe deposits the waste into a septic tank buried underground. The septic tank has two openings called an inlet and an outlet and each of these openings has a baffle inside the tank to ensure that waste only moves in one direction: in through the inlet, and out through the outlet.
Inside the septic tank, solids sink to the bottom. This is called sludge. Fats and oils rise to the top. This is called scum. In between, waste water or liquid effluent collects. Aerobic (or air breathing) bacteria digest and break down the scum, while anaerobic (not air breathing) bacteria break down the sludge. Not all scum and sludge breaks down. This needs to be pumped out by professionals every three to five years. We typically recommend pumping at least every three years.
The liquid effluent, which is the clearer, partially-treated liquid, leaves the tank through the outlet and is piped to the distribution box. The distribution box disperses the effluent into various lines that run into a drain field.
The drain field, in general, is an underground system of perforated drain pipes lying in gravel trenches. The entire system is topped with topsoil and seeded with grass. The drain field allows the effluent to drain through the gravel and sink into the soil. However, where the gravel and soil meet, a naturally occurring layer of tar-like substance called a biomat forms. The biomat is made up of anaerobic organisms that feed on the organic matter in the waste water, breaking down solids and eliminating viruses and other hazardous organisms in the waste. When the water gets through the drain field biomat, it is clean and safe for the environment.
