How do septic tanks work?
This is our septic tanks explained section, a brief overview of how a typical septic tank system works.
The function of any Septic Tank sewage system is to separate solids from liquids so as to allow the liquid waste to flow away out of the septic tank to a soakaway whilst the more solid waste is retained in the septic tank for emptying or desludging annually or when required.
The function of the soakaway is to allow the majority of the liquid discharged from the septic tank to disperse into the surrounding ground through a piped drainage system under the ground.
