All the wastewater is carried from the property to the tank outside. The tank's natural design helps ensure the waste that gets there splits into three sections.The first part have the heavier wastes that settles to the bottom and is referred to as "sludge";the second part are lighter materials that forms a layer of "scum" and ascends to the top; and the third part are refined fluids forming in the center, called "effluent", which securely leaves the tank and returns to the earth.Get in touch with Atlanta Septic Tank Pros Right nowSeptic tanks do require some focused TLC that most homeowners cannot really do by themselves.
