A septic system is an underground wastewater treatment system commonly used in areas without access to municipal sewer services. It consists of a septic tank and a drain field or leach field. Wastewater from a property flows into the septic tank, where solids settle and are broken down by bacteria. The liquid portion, known as effluent, exits the tank and is distributed into the drain field, where it is further treated and absorbed into the soil. The soil acts as a natural filter, removing impurities and pathogens from the effluent. A properly functioning septic system efficiently treats and disposes of wastewater, preventing contamination of groundwater and maintaining a clean and healthy environment. Regular maintenance, including septic tank pumping and periodic inspections, is essential to ensure the longevity and proper operation of a septic system.
