ABOUT SEPTIC TANKS
Septic tanks are small local sewage treatment systems, which are not connected to main sewage networks. The term septic refers to the anaerobic bacterial conditions which develop in a septic tank. These decompose or mineralize the waste in the tank.
Septic tanks are normally buried underground, and have capacity between 300 and 1,500 gallons. In addition to the basic septic tank, systems include pumps, alarms, sand filters, and means of disposing of clarified liquid effluent, such as a drain field, pond, or peat moss bed. Regular preventive maintenance is need to remove the irreducible solids which settle to the bottom of the tank and gradually fill it, reducing its efficiency.
In North America, about 25% of the population rely on septic tanks for the disposal of their sewage.
