What is a Septic System?

Septic systems are often used for houses in rural areas. They are water way systems that treat your sewage right on site and then release the treated liquid back into the ground. A septic system eliminates the need for a municipal sewer system in rural areas and are usually made out of concrete, fiberglass, PVC or plastic. A home’s septic system should be inspected about every 3 years.

  How does it work?

A typical septic system consists of a septic tank and leaching bed, which are all hidden underground. The waste water exits your home from a pipe that connects to the septic tank. The tank helps solids separate the liquids from remaining liquids called effluent. This then moves out of the tank and into the leaching bed, which lets the liquid seep into the ground where bacteria and other organisms process the waste and then filter it into the ground.
