Septic Systems

With a large range of sizes to choose from, septic systems are designed to manage sewage when sewage treatment plant is not readily accessible. Septic systems consist of a septic tank, a drain field and the land beneath the drain field. Household waste is collected in the septic tank for pretreatment before getting sent through the drainage pipes into the trenches in the drain field. When it reaches the trenches, the waste is slowly absorbed into the soil below.
