Septic systems are an efficient and economical way to deal with wastewater. They dispose of wastewater by releasing it into the ground. In order for a septic system to function properly, however, the septic tank must be sized properly, installed by a professional, and pumped regularly.

If you have a septic system, the water from your house flows into a single pipe that goes into a septic tank. The septic tank will always stay full; whenever wastewater comes into the tank on one end, wastewater exits the tank to the drainfield on the other end. From there, water inside the drainfield absorbs into the soil and is naturally cleaned.
