Septic Tanks in New Port Richey, FloridaAlthough some septic systems have more complex additions, such as components designed to trap grease or designed to keep things flowing when gravity isn’t a factor, all share a few parts in common. These include the tank, which is a concrete box that is buried beneath the ground, and the drain field, which connects to the tank and allows treated liquid waste to move out of the system and back into the soil. Septic tanks vary in size, but their purpose is the same. As liquid and solid waste go down the drains in the connected structure, they move through the pipes and into the tank.

After the waste has settled, it forms layers. Solids stay at the bottom, creating something referred to as sludge, while liquid waste stays at the top. The wastewater undergoes treatment, and then it can move out of the tank. But the sludge remains, forming layers. It’s essential to have this component pumped out on a regular basis, as failing to do so can result in a backup. And since this situation is unpleasant and messy (to say the least), it’s something you certainly want to avoid if possible. Other care tips for septic tanks include not parking vehicles over where the tank is buried, spacing out loads of laundry and other tasks that require a lot of water, and keeping up with inspections.
