How Septic Tanks Work

The wastewater that we collect from our houses is carried through pipes to underground septic tanks. It must be ensured that septic tank systems are maintained properly so as to ensure proper functioning. Once the septic tank is filled up, sewage water is expelled from it and enters the absorption trench or leach field system.

A septic tank is the most well known component of a septic system. The process a septic tank utilises is quite simple: some of the matter (ie. grease and fats) float to the top of the tank and form a scum layer, whilst the rest of the broken down solids (sludge) sinks to the bottom of the tank.

Types of Septic Tanks

Septic Tank

At Express Wastewater, we understand the many benefits of investing in a septic tank system and why so many people choose to install them.

Septic tank systems have been a trusted form of wastewater treatment for decades. Wastewater is carried through the pipes from your house to an underground septic tank. This tank is the most well-known component of a septic system and is responsible for storing wastewater before it is sent to the leach drain or absorption trench.

When the septic tank is filled up, the sewage water is released from it and dispersed via the absorption trench or, preferably, via an underground leach drain.

Septic tanks are also much more cost efficient in the long run because they require very minimal maintenance, and have a long lifespan when properly maintained.

Furthermore, septic tanks are incredibly durable and do not require energy to operate, resulting in lower operating costs. All in all, a septic tank system is an excellent investment that will provide you with peace of mind for many years to come.
