The Workings Within a Septic System

As a homeowner, you have many responsibilities. You may not want to think about your septic system, but it is one of the things you must maintain in order to have a safe and sanitary home and yard. All of the wastewater from your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry exits your home through a pipe that leads to the septic tank, where the liquids and solids separate from each other. As more water enters the septic tank, treated wastewater is pushed out into the drain field and the perforated pipes there. Routine septic tank inspections in San Francisco are important for keeping your system working properly. Take a look at this infographic to learn more about how septic tanks work.
