Septic System 101 – What is a Septic System?
Septic systems are used in lieu of sewer systems, which are more common in densely populated, urban areas where homes are closer together. In suburban and rural areas where homes are spread further apart, sewer systems are impractical. That’s where septic systems come in.
- A septic system is essentially a self-contained underwater treatment unit that treats black (toilet) and gray (sink, shower, bathtub) wastewater, as well as waste solids (toilet, garbage disposal) from your home.
- A septic tank itself is the main component of the septic system. It holds all waste solids and liquids, and contains the namesake bacteria which are essential to the system’s overall function. The two most important aspects of maintenance to avoid a septic tank repair are consultations and pumping. A septic tank professional can let you know during a consultation when you should have your tank pumped.
