No one wants to replace unnecessary parts. Let’s start with the basics.
How the System Works
A septic system is made up of the septic tank, drain field and the various piping involved throughout the waste removal process. The septic tank is a buried, sealed box where waste from the home flows in via a sewer pipe and the contents are treated so that the liquids and solids separate; solids congealing at the bottom, liquids rising to the top. Once this dissolution occurs, the liquids travel out of the septic tank into the drain field.
The drain field, also commonly known as a leach field, is an underground waste-removal facility consisting of a network of pipes whose function is to remove the contaminants from the liquids. We like to analogize this process by saying the drain field “cleanses the wastewater.” The liquids then penetrate through the soil to eventually be released.
