How Does My Septic Tank Work?
Your septic tank is where the initial step of wastewater treatment happens. Conditions in the tank promote bacterial growth. These bacteria feed on the organic waste present. Waste that has been processed by the bacteria settles on the bottom as sludge. Scum build-up at the top of the water is composed of grease, fats, and soaps which the bacteria process very little of. The region of water between the sludge at the bottom and scum on top is a clear zone that is moved out of the septic tank to the next stage of the plumbing disposal system. Gases generated by the bacterial process are vented normally through your home or building’s plumbing vents.
