Urban homes use central drainage system for waste disposal. In case there is no central drainage available, a septic tank is used as a home-by-home drainage system. Waste water from bathrooms, toilets, sinks, and showers get accumulated in a septic tank. Depending upon your domestic needs, a suitable size of the septic tank is used. The tank is buried in the ground, waste is collected in it and water from it is passed onto the drainage field using sloped pipes.
Septic tanks have to be pumped every 3-5 years and systems which have electrical floats and pumps should be inspected every year.

Waste water in septic tank forms three layers- solids form the bottom slurry layer, liquids stay in the middle and oils form a top scum layer. Solid waste is broken down by bacteria and liquid waste is passed onto the drainage field. Proper care of septic tank and drainage field will cause fewer problems in your septic system.
Septic Tank Maintenance
The drainfield is also an important part of your septic tank system. It removes contaminants from the liquid and disposes the water from the waste. Never park vehicles or drive on the drainfield. Never plant trees in it as the roots of the trees can grow and penetrate the septic tank system.
