Inside a Septic System
A septic system generally includes an underground septic tank, a drainfield, and underground piping. Wastewater flows into the tank, where sludge settles in the tank bottom, and wastewater passes through to the drainfield, where it is absorbed into the earth beneath your property. Septic systems are not connected to a municipal sewer system.
Periodic inspection and maintenance are necessary to ensure proper functioning and remove the sludge that collects in the septic tank. Homeowners must also take care not to dispose of hazardous household waste in sinks or toilets.
In most states when you sell your home, the septic system must pass inspection and be in good working order.
