A highly efficient biological system which can effectively digest and disperse your household sewage and other organic wastes.
Properly designed, installed, and maintained, it should give you many years of trouble-
How Does It Work?
A septic system is designed to condition untreated liquid household waste (sewage) so that it can be readily dispersed and percolated into the subsoil. Percolation through the soil accomplishes much of the final purification of the effluent, including the destruction of disease producing bacteria.
Your septic tank is the first step in the process of sewage conditioning. Without it, the untreated sewage would quickly clog the receiving soil and prevent the purification process of leaching and soil percolation.
Septic tanks Serve Three Functions
Removal of solids -
Bacterial action -
Sludge & Scum Storage -
Finally . . .
The treated effluent from the septic tank is discharged to the leach field where it percolates through suitable gravel and finally into the subsoil for further purification.
