A septic tank is a water-tight box made of concrete, fiberglass, or plastic. The primary purpose of the septic tank is to separate solids from liquids and promote the breakdown of the solids by bacteria that are naturally present in the wastewater, which enters the tank from the home. A reliable tank is designed to hold the wastewater for three days so that the bacteria can digest the wastewater before it enters the absorption field. Inside the tank, solids then settle to the bottom, forming a layer of sludge that should be pumped out every 3 to 5 years.
The absorption field, or drain field, is the next treatment step that follows after septic tank breakdown. It is designed to receive clarified sewage (that which is broken down by bacteria) from the septic tank and discharge it underground into the soil. The absorption field may be constructed of gravel, rock, or other approved aggregate, as well as chamber systems, gravel-less pipe, drip irrigation, or other approved alternative products.
The purpose of pumping out a septic tank is to remove the sludge, or solid waste, that accumulates on the bottom of the tank over time. If it's not pumped out at regular intervals (every 3 to 5 years, according to the Florida Department of Health), the sludge can seep into the drain field, causing thousands of dollars in replacement or repairs as well as potential health hazards to you and your family.
