  8. How a Septic Tank Works

    Every time you flush a toilet or do laundry at home, the water and the water waste flows out the house and fall into the septic tank. A septic tank is primarily used to store wastewater. It holds the water until solid particles present in the water settle down to the bottom of the tank and the lighter waste rises to the top. Between these two layers is the cleared water which then flows through the outlet pipe and is then slowly dissipated into the drain field. The septic tank contains the bacteria which break down the organic waste matter, naturally slowing down the process of the sludge layer formation.
