The tanks specially designed and installed underground and connected through various pipes to your home are called Septic tanks. The sewage from your homes is collected and deposited in these tanks when you flush to keep your home clean, free from bacteria and viruses.
Septic tanks are the most important part of the plumbing. As we all are habituated to flushing the toilet so that no mess is left behind, the necessity of the septic tanks slipped out of our minds.
With the new technologies and techniques of septic tanks installation, you don’t have to worry about the cleaning and maintenance of these tanks.
#Importance of Septic tanks:-
A conversation about septic tanks may not be a good idea at the time of dinner or any gatherings. But they are an essential part of our daily life. Whenever you flush, do laundry the septic tanks come into the role. Water carrying waste should be drained out of the domestic and commercial buildings into the respective septic tanks. Everything is hygienic, mess-free and systematic when you have a septic system that works exactly the way it is made for.
#How do these septic tanks work?
To understand the work of septic tanks systematically read the following steps:-
- Water that carries all the sewage waste runs out from your house through one drainage pipe, into these septic tanks
- The septic tanks buried underground, water-tight containers made up from polythene or concrete are capable of holding water for a long time so that the solid settles down and lets the oil float at the top, in the form of scums. These septic tanks have a section made at the places that prevent letting out all the tanks.
- The liquid waste that is floating at the top comes out of the septic tanks from the evacuation section. The wastewater is then discharged on the surface allowing it to get filtered through the soil.
- The wastewater then seeps through the soil removing all types of harmful bacteria, nutrients, viruses. It also removes Coliform bacteria which is harmful to the human intestines and other warm-blooded animals.
Choosing the right septic tanks:-
It is quite difficult to choose the correct septic tank whether it is a commercial or residential building. You have to choose tanks considering all the factors. First of all, you have to consider the average amount of water consumption at your home. Which includes all types of consumption like bathing, laundry, cooking, cleaning that requires flushing down the waters into the drain. Choose a septic tank that holds twice the average amount of water that you consume.
