Understanding Septic Tanks

First Choice Plumbing

A – Waste water and sewage from the property is fed through to the septic tank.

B – The septic tank allows the solids to settle out at the bottom. The tank must be emptied out periodically, typically once a year.

C – The absorption field (or ‘soakaway’) is a critical component, as it allows the untreated liquid element of the sewage to soak away underground where it is dispersed naturally.

A septic tank is a watertight enclosure designed to allow solids in the sewage to settle and decompose via bacterial action over a period of time. Simultaneously, it allows the liquid effluent to separate out and disperse into the soil via a land drain system.

A septic tank collects and stores sewage solids. As the tank fills up, it will need emptying. This is typically done once a year by a local contractor.

Tanks come in different shapes and sizes, and are chosen to match the demands placed by the users of the property.

Septic tanks are typically of GRP (glass-reinforced plastic) construction. We use fully certified tanks from Titan and Klargester.
