Many homes, especially baches and those in rural areas, are not able to connect to a town sewage system. These properties have their own on-site disposal systems. The most common form of on-site disposal system is a septic tank.

How do septic tanks work?

Wastewater, from the kitchen, laundry and bathroom, discharges into a septic tank buried on the property. The heavier solids settle to the bottom of the tank, while suspendid solids float to the top. The remaining liquid flows out of the tank and discharges into a soakage area (either a dispersal or evaporation field).

Modern septic systems may have pumps, pressurized disposal with multiple chambers and filters.

Maintenance is crucial

A poorly-maintained septic tank will become a serious health hazard, spreading disease and contaminating water sources. Septic tanks need regular maintenance, some of which you can do yourself and some of which you'll need professional help with.

Pumping

Septic Tanks generally need pumping (cleaning out) every 3-5 years to remove sludge and sediment.

The frequency depends on:

  • What goes into the system.
  • How many people us it.
  • The capacity of the tanks.
  • Whether you recycle greywater
