There are many types of systems. The most commonly installed are: Conventional System, Mound System, Aeration Unit (ATU), and a Cesspool. A Septic system is an on-site sewage treatment and disposal system buried underground. WIth the exception of the cesspool all these units consist of a pre-treatment septic tank and a soil absorption area referred to as a drainfield. (See picture below) The cesspool acts as one and both. For purpose of discussion here we will treat them all as being the same. The modern septic tank is a water-tight box usually made of reinforced precast concrete or reinforced fiberglass, through which no natural bacteria is able to enter. This structure is where organic solids are decomposed by natural bio activity. The purpose of your tank is to treat household wastes including body wastes, laundry, water, bath water and discarded food. Septic systems are designed to work indefinitely if they are properly installed and maintained. It is critical to have your tank pumped out regularly and to maintain proper levels of bio activity.
