Septic System information and diagrams

Septic Tank
The septic tank is designed to separate the liquid wastewater from the solid material. The solids are pumped out from the tank annually to protect the soil absorption system from solid material reaching it and potentially harming it. The liquid level remains fairly constant with a layer of bacteria on top which begins breaking down the solid particles suspended in the wastewater. The wastewater flows out of the tank to the distribution box and eventually the SAS (Soil Absorption System).
Distribution Box
The distribution box evenly distributes the wastewater between the lines of the soil absorption system. Made of concrete and installed on a firm stone bed to keep those strict tolerances and slope required to allow for proper gravity flow.
Soil Absorption Systems
Soil Absorption Systems provide the means for the wastewater to be further broken down and then returned to the soil. SAS’s come in many variations. The SAS develops a biomat for the breakdown of solids and then distributes the flow over an extended area so the soil can finish the treatment process before it returns to the water table 4 or more feet below.
