How A Septic Tank System Works

Sacramento Septic System Tanks

Septic Tanks:

A septic tank is a watertight chamber constructed of concrete or poly material. The average size is approximately 1000 to 2000 gallons. and have 1-2 compartments.  Tanks are buried underground unless they have a riser at ground level.

Water passes through the tank; the baffle holds the sludge to the front chamber and water filters to the leach lines.

Sacramento Septic System Drain Fields

Drain Fields:

The “leach lines” or “drywell” area uses the ability of stone and soil to filter and treat the remaining effluent/water. After water is filtered through, it uses evaporation to dry and continue.  G  & C Septic helps to treat solids that damage septic systems, including leach lines.  Majority of problems arise from harmful products contaminating the disposal field. They include: coffee grounds, cigarette butts, cat litter, baby wipes, egg shells, fats, grease, and oil.
