Have you ever wondered where that water goes? If you live in a large city, it probably goes to a sewage treatment center or sewer. In Canada, a quarter of the population lives in smaller communities or rural areas where such systems are not set up. For these Canadians, and many other people all over the world, a septic system is used to process and discard of wastewater. A septic tank treats the wastewater and releases the usable portion back into the ground. Septic systems are also referred to as onsite wastewater systems. How Does a Septic Tank Work? A septic tank receives the used water created from regular household use and treats it until it is at a safe level. Then the tank returns the usable portion known as the effluent to the groundwater system How is the Septic Tank Made? Septic tanks are watertight structures usually made from concrete, fiberglass or polyethylene. Historically, septic tanks have also bee made out of materials such as wood or steel. If you live in a very old home and you suspect it may have a steel septic tank, be mindful that rust may deposit on your tank. If this is the case, you will have to eventually replace the tank. In the event that your home has a wood septic tank, it is eventually going to rot if it is not rotting already. In this case, you will also need to replace your septic tank. Septic tanks are generally buried underground, and its size will vary on the size and water treatment requirements of your particular home. Tanks may have one or two compartments, depending on where and when it was installed. The septic tank basically consists of a holding tank, which as aforementioned is manufactured out of concrete, fiberglass or polyethylene. The septic tank, (or holding tank) retains all the solid waste extracted from the household water waste. The septic tank is connected to a system of absorption commonly known as a leach field. The leach field then disposes of the effluent liquid (water) into the soil.

Page 1 Presented by Daniel Toriola Below is a general outline of the main components of any septic system: - Sewer line, this is the main waste line leading from your home's plumbing to the onsite septic system - Septic tank, usually buried underground only feet away from the house, the septic tank receives the liquid and solid waste and retains the solids in the tank. Baffles (or barriers) at the inlet and outlet of the tank slow down the flow of liquid passing through the septic tank and stop solid waste from escaping the tank. Tanks with two compartments have extra baffles and thus do an even more effective job. - Leaching system, also referred to as a 'drainfield,' the leaching system is basically an absorption system. The leaching system distributes the effluent into the soil around it. There are a variety of different ways to set up a leaching system, but the most common is a series of underground perforated pipes buried in trenches with good drainage. The type of drainage system used will depend greatly on the type of soil that surrounds the property and the amount of space available for the leaching system. Now that you have a basic understanding of the components of a septic system and how they work together, not only do you know how a septic tank is made, but also how it works.

Page 2 Presented by Daniel Toriola How Do Septic Tanks Work? By Amy Nutt You already know that when you flush the toilet, pour water in your sink or empty the tub the water goes somewhere. But have you ever stopped to think about where it goes or what happens to it? Large cities have equally large and complicated sewage or water treatment systems designed to salvage as much of the useable water from the waste as possible. If, however, you are like 25% of Canadians and you live in a smaller or rural community, you are more likely to have a septic system on your property than you are to share a sewer with neighbors. What is a Septic System? A private onsite septic system is designed to be functional and sanitary. It basically receives all the water waste that is expelled through your home's plumbing and treats it to extract the useable water waste that can be absorbed by the soil on the property. In a nutshell, a septic tank separates solid waste from liquids. The solid waste is stored in the septic tank. Solid waste exists in two forms - a top layer of grease referred to as scum, and a bottom layer of solids more commonly known as sludge. In a septic tank, the liquids that are separated from solid waste are called effluent and they are dispersed throughout the soil on the property by a mechanism called a leaching system. The leaching system is a part of the septic system, which is often buried just a few feet away from the septic tank. The leaching system helps the effluent flow from the septic tank into the soil. In a Nutshell? A septic tank receives the wastewater that comes from regular use of household plumbing and treats it until it is at a safe environmental level. Then the septic ank returns the serviceable portion - known as the waste effluent to the soil surrounding the property.

Beware of Old Septic Tanks Because buying a home is a huge investment, you have a home inspector inspect the property before you close the deal. Similarly, septic systems are very expensive, and thus, you should make sure to inspect the system properly or have it inspected so that you know what you are getting into. If your home is older, it may have a septic tank made out of steel or wood. If that's the case, you will definitely be looking at replacing that septic tank. Tanks made out of steel inevitably rust and end up needing to be replaced. Similarly, septic tanks made out of wood will end up rotting and also needing to be replaced.
