How does a Septic System work?
A septic system is a small scale sewage treatment system common in areas with no connection to main sewerage pipes. The term "septic" refers to the anaerobic bacterial environment that develops in the tank and which decomposes or mineralizes the waste discharged into the tank.

A septic tank is generally connected to the inlet wastewater pipe at one end and to a septic drain field at the other. Wastewater enters the tank, allowing solids to settle and scum to float. The settled solids are aerobically digested, reducing the volume of solids. The liquid component flows through a dividing wall into a second chamber where further settlement takes place.

Waste that is not decomposed by the anaerobic digestion eventually has to be removed from the septic tank or else the septic tank fills up. How often the septic tank has to be emptied depends on the volume of the tank relative to the input of solids, the amount of indigestible solids and the ambient temperature.

 



How to avoid problems with your Septic System
• Excessive dumping of cooking oils and grease can fill up the upper portion of the septic tank and can cause the inlet drains to block. Oils and grease are often difficult to degrade and can cause odor problems and difficulties with the period emptying.

• Flushing non-biodegradable hygiene products (i.e. sanitary napkins, diapers, etc.) will rapidly fill or clog a septic tank and these materials should not be disposed of in this way.

• The use of garbage disposals or other waste macerators for disposal of waste food will increase rapid overload of the system and may cause early system failure or problems. Each family should decide whether to use a disposal understanding the possible risks to their septic system.

• Certain cleaning chemicals may damage the working of a septic tank especially pesticides, herbicides, materials with high concentrations of bleach or caustic soda (lye) or any other inorganic materials such as paints, solvents etc.

• Roots from trees and shrubbery growing above the tank or the drain field may clog and or rupture them.

• Playgrounds and storage buildings may cause damage to a tank and the drainage field. In addition, covering the drainage field with an impervious surface or hard-standing will seriously affect its efficiency.
