What is a Septic Systems
A septic system is a type of small-scale sewage treatment system that is commonly used in rural or suburban areas where there is no access to a central sewage treatment plant. A septic system typically consists of a septic tank and a drain field. The septic tank is a buried tank that is designed to hold wastewater from a building or other structure. Inside the tank, bacteria break down the wastewater and solid waste, reducing its volume and harmfulness. The treated wastewater is then discharged into the drain field, where it is absorbed by the soil.
What is involved with a septic system?
In terms of construction, installing a septic system involves several steps. First, the site must be surveyed and evaluated to determine the appropriate location and size of the septic tank and drain field. This is typically done by a septic system designer or engineer. Next, the tank and drain field must be excavated and installed. The tank is typically made of concrete, fiberglass, or plastic, and is buried underground. The drain field consists of a network of perforated pipes that are laid in a bed of gravel, and is also buried underground. After the septic system is installed, it must be inspected and approved by a local health department or other regulatory agency before it can be used.
