Technical Information About Your Septic System
Designing a septic system requires careful and intelligent planning. Soil of a sandy nature is the most favorable for the disposal of the purified liquid waste of the septic system. Sand or gravel absorbs moisture and permits rapid leaching of the liquid waste into the subsoil. Another favorable condition is where the contour shape or slope of the soil is at such distance from the purification unit of the septic tank that a gravity flow in the discharge line is possible.
The septic tank is a device used to expedite the decomposition of the elements contained in raw sewage wastes. Raw sewage consists of water and settled solid materials, such as grit, grease, fats, vegetable and animal materials in a suspended state and non-settled materials of a vegetable and mineral nature in solution. It has a milky color and may have an extremely offensive odor. The settled solids, usually refereed to as organic materials, can be liquefied in a septic tank in a very short time. Approximately a 24-hour period of retention offers satisfactory results.
The solid organic materials, being denser than water, tend to settle to the bottom of the tank and are technically referred to as sludge. The lighter organic materials, being less dense than water, rise to the surface and usually are referred to as scum. The suspended materials constitute only a small part of the raw sewage by actual weight. The organic materials in solution in the raw sewage offer a more difficult problem. They cannot be liquefied in the septic tank and must undergo further treatment by processes other than liquefaction. The liquid content of raw sewage does not present a problem other than that of its discharge into the subsoil or natural drainage terminal.
